        Literarisch-humoristisches Kunstalbum. (Literaturnyy i yumoristicheskiy khudozhestvennyy albom). Plakat. Einblattdruck.

      Veröffentlicht vom Russischen Lesekreis (bzw. Lesezimmer) in München., Mai 1884.. 2 Bl. mit einer Original-Lithographie. Format ca. 39x29,5 cm.. Ausgabe des russischen Lesezimmers. - Die restriktive Politik Zars Alexander III., bei der dieser vorher, durch seinen, bei einem Attentat ums Leben gekommene Vater Alexander II. gemachte soziale Reformen drastisch zurücknahm, führte dazu, daß in den 1890er Jahren zahlreiche Studenten, Juden und politische Aufrührer nach Berlin und München emigrierten. Der Russische Leseverein (bzw. Lesezirkel) wurde zum Sammelbecken zahlreicher Sozialisten und Anarchisten. U.a. gingen dort die Exilpolitiker Nicolaj Meserjakov, Julian Marchlewski, Israel Helphand und auch Lenin ein und aus. Vgl. Johannes Baur: Die russische Kolonie in München 1900-1945, S. 27: "Wohl seit Anfang der 90er Jahre existierten in München vier Organisationen der aus Rußland stammenden Studenten, nämlich der Polnische Lesezirkel, der Akademische Slawische Gesangsverein, die Russische Studentenkasse und der Russische Leseverein". Das Zentrum der studentischen Aktivitäten war in der Görrestrasse 16/I zu finden (vgl. Schneider, Die russischen Studentenkolonien, S. 78). Herman Beyer-Thoma schreibt in seiner Veröffentlichung "Bayern + Osteuropa" auf S. 391: "Sie unterhielten eine enge Studentenkasse, ein Studentenkasino mit einer Suppenküche und einen russischen Leseverein". Dort hingen wohl auch Bilder von Marx, Engels und Lassalle. - Düsteres, "heroisches" Motiv auf der eine nur spärlich bekleidete Frau mit ihrem linken Arm ein Plakat mit dem Titel unseres Plakates aufhält, davor im Dunkeln sitzende Person mit Mandoline und ein Betender. - Die Litho etwas undeutlich gedruckt auf einem Doppelblatt, von dem nur das erste Blatt bedruckt wurde. Auf bläulichem, festeren Papier. Dieses mit leichteren Bräunungsspuren und mit leichten Eselsohren. - Text in Kyrillisch. - Sehr selten! Von uns nirgends nachweisbar! Überhaupt findet sich zum Thema russische Studenten, Sozialisten und Anarchisten im 19. Jahrhundert in München nahezu nichts in öffentlichen Bibliotheken oder im Internet!

      Hong Kong.: Noronha.. 1884.. 115pp, some neat marginalia, original wrappers, lower corners first and last leaves creased. Chop front free endpaper, occasional light foxing edges and endpapers, some very minor loss paper at head and tail of spine, neat repair at foot. An historical sketch from early times through to the 1880s of the region of Tungking in Annam. At that time the region wsa involved in tumulteous events as the French attempted to gain the region facing Vietnamese and Chinese Black Flag resistance. Much of the historical information for this work the author drew from the Chinese work "Yueh-nan-chi-lio" while "The account of the Black Flags is based upon knowledge acquired from two of my military pupils who were sent upon an Imperial Mission to the Head Quarters of the band at Lao Kai. As they were not only natives of Kwang-Si, but had been formerly trusted chiefs of the Tai-pings they were for a month the welcome and honoured guests of the daring Black Flag leader Liu Yung-fu" (Introduction). .

        Eine neue Methode zum Studium des Faserverlaufs im Centralnervensystem." Separat-Abzug aus Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie. Anatomische Abtheilung. INSCRIBED BY SIGMUND FREUD.

      [Leipzig: Veit, 1884]. - Pp. [453]-60. Original wrappers. Ink stamp "HISTOLOGIE/ Collège de France" on front wrapper. Ink note "Technique/ I x y z" (?by Ranvier) on front wrapper. Very Good. First Edition. INSCRIBED BY SIGMUND FREUD: "Hommage de l'auteur." The recipient was probably Louis Ranvier, who was the histologist at the Collège de France. The offprint of another paper on neurohistology by Freud--with the same ink stamp "HISTOLOGIE/ Collège de France" and with an inscription from Freud to Ranvier ("Monsieur le Professeur Ranvier hommage respectueux de l’auteur")--supports the view that Ranvier was the recipient of the offprint offered here. When Freud was in Paris from October 13, 1885-February 28, 1886, he met Ranvier at the Collège de France. Later he saw Ranvier at a dinner party given by Charcot. Freud described that meeting in a letter: "A particularly pleasant event for me was the arrival during the evening of M. Ranvier, the famous histologist, who had given me such a friendly reception in the Collège de France. I think he spoke to Charcot about me, and I myself had a pleasant talk with him later. My confidence as a judge of human nature received a considerable boost when he confided in me that he would have liked best to be a professor in a small German university--for instance, Bonn--for in a letter to Paneth I had described him as a 'German university professor badly translated into French' " (Letters of Sigmund Freud, ed. E. Freud, p. 207). Ranvier was one of only two people (the other being Charcot) who invited Freud to a dinner party while Freud was in Paris (Jones, Life and Work of Sigmund Freud, Vol. 1, p. 188). Grinstein, Sigmund Freud's Writings 30 (1884d). "Freud's full account of his method of staining nerve tissue with gold chloride. . . . An English version of this paper was published in Brain 7 (1884) pp. 86-89, under the title 'A new histological method for the study of nerve-tracts in the brain and spinal cord' " (Norman F6). "In February [Freud] heard that Weigert had invented a new method for staining nervous tissue, so he hastened to send a 'Preliminary Communication' on his own method to the Centralblatt für die medizinischen Wissenschaften, reserving the full account for Pflüger's Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie [the full account is offered here]. He also got his friend Fleischl to send a paper to Ferrier in London for publication in Brain. . . . He wrote this one in English, but got an American to correct it. Freud was aware of the special difficulty with all such methods, which he pointed out as follows: 'Innumerable methods have been devised by histologists which proved themselves useful only in the hands of their inventors; that is why I have decided to publish even the pettiest directions.' Freud was himself highly pleased with the success of his method. which gave him 'a wonderfully clear and precise picture' of the cells and fibers. It caused some sensation at the time, and demands at once came in for it to be published in Czech, Italian, and Russian. The results of subsequent trials, however, were more variable; in some hands it produced excellent results, in others more uncertain and therefore unreliable ones. Brücke told him his various new methods alone would bring him fame" (Jones, ibid., Vol. 1, pp. 203-04). Shepherd, Foundations of the Neuron Doctrine (ch. 7, "The Nerve Cell Studies of Freud").

        An Archive of Over 100 significant Letters and Documents in the Period 1907-1919 of One of the Earliest Telephone Companies In Ohio

      The collection contains 125 pieces of original correspondence including both TLS (Typed Letters Signed) and ((LS) Letters Signed. What began as a small electrical shop for the repair and manufacture of telephone equipment in 1884 as the north Electric Works grew to become the North Electric Company in 1889. By the early 20th Century the company became one of the most prominent manufacturing business in Ohio employing over 300 workers. After being in business for over a century, the business first was taken over by Ericsson and the by IYTY. These letters pertain to the problems stemming from a patent for the automatic ringing mechanism, switch boards and operators as well as dealing with their manufacture under Canadian Parents which became know as the Telechronometer Co. The big change ended the flat-rate system and introduced meters which could measure the length of calls and, of course, increase the cost to the consumer. For the next sixty years, the telephone company became a monopoly enforced by patent, licenses, bonds, under the Bell and AT&T trademarks.. Quarto.

        Psychiatrie. Klinik der Erkrankungen des Vorderhirns begründet auf dessen Bau, Leistung u. Ernährung. Erste Hälfte (all publ.)

      . Wien, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1884, 8°, X, 288 pp., 64 Holzschnitte, 1 farb. lith. Tafel, Halbleinenband der Zeit.. First Edition. Theodor Meynert (1833-1892), professor of neurology and psychiatry in Vienna, was considered the greatest brain anatomist in Europe. - "In the history of Neurology and psychiatry Th. Meynert stands out as an phrophet of things to come. He inspired the work of Flechsig, Wernicke, and Forel, and he left his mark on Freud's thought. Thanks to Meynert the Vienna School came to rival the Salpetriere and Queen Square: to him we owe some of the current dynamic concepts in neurology and psychiatry." Haymaker-Schiller - He belonged to the German somatist school of psychiatry, which folled Griesinger's dictum that all psychic diseases were brain diseases. He is considered by some the Father of the architectonics of the brain. His work on psychiatry (a term he later rejected) consists of a brillant study of the anatzomy, functions and diseases of the forebrain. - "Wir verdanken Meynert mehr Entdeckungen in der feineren Anatomie des Gehirns als irgend einem anderen Forscher" Dölken - Garrison & Morton No.4942; Norman No.1506; Haymaker-Schiller, pp.57ff.; Bibl.

        Recherches sur la conductabilite galvanique des electrolytes

      Norstedt, Stockholm 1884 - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS, of Arrhenius's landmark discovery of the theory of electrolytic disassociation. Arrhenius was awarded the 1903 Nobel Prize in chemistry "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered to the advancement of chemistry by his electrolytic theory of dissociation." By 1880, "it was known that solutions of certain compounds conduct electricity and that chemical reactions could occur when a current was passed. It was thought that the current decomposed the substance. In 1883 Arrhenius proposed a theory that substances were partly converted into an active form when dissolved. The active part was responsible for conductivity. In the case of acids and bases, he correlated the strength with the degree of decomposition on solution. This work was published as Reserches sur la conductibilite galvanique des electrolytes (1884; Researches on the Electrical Conductivity of Electrolytes) and submitted as his doctoral dissertation. Arrhenius sent his work to several leading physical chemists, including Jacobus van't Hoff. Friedrich Ostwald, and Rudolf Clausius, who were immediately impressed" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists). Arrhenius soon gained high international acclaim, ultimately being awarded the 1903 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his work. Recherches sur la conductabilite galvanique des electrolytes. Two volumes. Bihang till K. Svenska Vet.-Akad. handlingar, volume 8, nos.13 & 14. Stockholm: Norstedt, 1884. Octavo (216 x 136mm), both volumes in original printed wrappers. One plate (volume 1).

        Parrots in Captivity.

      George Bell and Sons -1887 1884 - FIRST EDITION, with 81 fine chromolithograph plates of parrots, 3 volumes, sm.4to. (pp. 144 + 114 + 144), original green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, parrot illustration stamped in gilt centre on upper covers, top edges gilt (covers slightly marked but original cloth unusually bright and unfaded, no inscriptions, plates somewhat foxed but mostly confined to blank verso of plates, stitching a little loose in volume three but generally an unusually good set) This set is without the supplement published in 1888 containing 9 plates. The supplement is notoriously rare and hardly ever accompanies sets of this work. For decades sets were broken up for the highly decorative parrot plates. It is increasingly difficult to find sets in good condition such as the set here described. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [Np. undated].. Original portrait drawing, in sanguine and white, on a sheet of grey michalet paper, 38 x 29 cm. Fine, mounted via a vinyl sleeve in a captioned mat of ca. 1960s vintage, the latter a bit darkened and smudged. A striking portrait of Scott (1884-1929), almost full face, unsigned, but captioned "G.Scott" in the lower margin in pencil in the artist's hand. In the course of his dramatically short life, Scott left a significant mark in the fields of arts and letters. As an undergraduate, he was invited to Florence by Bernard Berenson, an occasion that led to his close friendship with John Maynard Keynes, and eventually to his acting as Berenson's secretary-librarian from 1907-1909. He established an informal architectural partnership with Cecil Pinsent, and in 1914, published the quite influential work, THE ARCHITECTURE OF HUMANISM. In spite of the somewhat complex sexual aspects it entailed, he entertained a passionate love affair with Vita Sackville-West from 1923-5, the period leading up to his publication of THE PORTRAIT OF ZÉLIDE. This latter work drew him to the attention of Col. Ralph Isham, who invited him to prepare for publication the Boswell papers Isham had coaxed from Malahide Castle. Scott was engaged in this project until, after a short holiday back home in the UK, he contracted pneumonia and died in New York in 1929. The editorship was then assumed by Frederick Pottle. Scott's POEMS were published posthumously in 1931. While the occasion upon which this portrait was made is not readily ascertainable, certainly the Rothenstein and Scott paths must have frequently intersected.
