        Anna Karenina

      Boston and New York : Thomas Y. Crowell & Company , 1886 First English Language Edition and First U.S. Edition, Translated by Nathan Haskell Dole. Copyright date 1886 with no later dates or printings indicated. The general bibliographic consensus is that the other Tolstoy titles opposite the title page determine the book's issue [i.e. the fewer the earlier]. This edition has NO titles opposite the title page. A scarce collectible copy of this literary classic. Bound in full leather, all page edges gilt, purple marbled end papers, raised bands on spine, gilt titles with elaborate gilt foliate decoration. Frontispiece is a photographic portrait of the author. Leather covers have some shelf wear especially at corners, with some scuffing to spine panel. Gilt titles are bright and clean. Binding is square and solid. Interior pages are clean with no markings and no foxing. The corner of the last blank page, pp.769/770 before a 3-page glossary, is bent and cut at the bottom corner, without impinging on the text. Frontispiece is a photographic portrait of the author. ***When he first read this novel, Dostoyevsky wrote: “Anna Karenina is sheer perfection as a work of art. No European work of fiction of our present day comes anywhere near it.” First issued serially in Russia in 1873; and first published in book form in Moscow, 1878; this translation was issued simultaneously in an English issue.*** Several binding variants were released, including brown, blue, and red cloth, though no priority exists. I am uncertain whether this is a deluxe binding or a rebinding at a later date. A celebrated classic and a significant book for any serious literature collection.

        Autograph, signed letters.

      1886 - JOHNSTON, General Joseph E., CSA. Two Autograph, signed letters, dated 1/27/1886 and 3/13/1891, to a young lady. The first thanks her for her letter "in the stile of a young lady, from you who were a little girl in the days when I saw you often," and promises her a framed picture of him. (With traces of glue and a tear with small loss to back page, not affecting text. 2ff., 8x5"). The second assures her that both uniform buttons he has sent were intended for her. "Will washing them with gold hide the dirt of six or eight and twenty years? I am afraid not." (Fine. 2ff., 7x4.5"). Like Lee, Johnston (1807-1891) was a Virginian of Revolutionary ancestry, who attended West Point. He distinguished himself against the Indians in Florida, and during the Mexican-American War. When Virginia seceded he resigned his commission as Brigadier-General and joined the Confederate Army. According to the DAB he was famous for remaining undefeated: "he disliked risks." His pessimistic, or perhaps realistic, view of the strength of the enemy led him to propose an armistice in 1865. After the war he served one term in Congress, the Commissioner of Railroads.

        Grundzüge der anatomischen und klinischen Chemie. Analecten für Forscher, Aerzte und Studierende von Ludwig J.W. Thudichum.

      . Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1886, 8°, VIII, 348 pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit; St.a.Tit.. First Edition! - "This is among Thudichum's most important books" Drabkin - - Vorwort: "Indem ich den Lesern einige, wie ich glaube, wichtige Resultate vieljähriger Arbeiten vorlege, habe ich keine nähere Erklärung über die bei ihrer Ermittlung beobachteten wissenschaftlichen Grundsätze zu machen, welche nicht aus der Natur des Werkes hervorgingen oder in demselben nicht näher begründet wären. Es kann keinem Zweifel unterliegen, dass ehe die von mir abgehandelten Gegenstände vollständig erledigt sind, jeder Versuch zur practischen Verwendung der biologischen Chemie in der Heilkunst nur geringe Erfolge haben wird. Diese practische Verwerthung ist aber wieder an sich die Bedingung der Entdeckung von Heilmitteln, deren Nothwendigkeit für die Sicherheit und normale Dauer des menschlichen Lebens weder durch sogenannte Verhütung von Krankheiten im Sinne der öffentlichen Gesundheitslehre, noch durch Hervorbringung künstlicher Immunität durch Impfung modificirter Krankheiten auch nur zweifelhaft gemacht werden kann. Die Entwicklung der Bacteriologie hat zur Ausbreitung dieses sowohl populären als wissenschaftlichen Verlangens auch in Kreisen Veranlassung gegeben, welche sich sonst um die Behandlung der Krankheiten zu bekümmern nicht veranlasst sahen. Somit fordere ich als Theil des Zusammenwirkens aller angezogenen Zweige der Wissenschaft eine ausgiebige Pflege der Chemie auf dem ganzen durch den Titel angedeuteten Gebiete. - Der Titel selbst nun ist sorgfältig gewählt, um Materien und Methoden von denen der gewöhnlich sogenannten physiologischen Chemie zu unterscheiden. Er macht daher auf grössere Genauigkeit, aber keineswegs auf Neuigkeit Anspruch, indem die darin gebrauchten Adjective sowohl von französischen als englischen Schriftstellern auf den Titeln ihrer Werke wiederholt benutzt worden sind. - Viele der besten Anatomen der letzten hundert Jahre haben die chemische Zusammensetzung des todten Körpers als Theil der anatomischen Wissenschaft nicht nur betrachtet, sondern in ihren Werken geradezu abgehandelt. Dass sie Secrete und Excrete als Theile des todten Körpers ansahen war eine logische Folge ihres wissenschaftlichen Vorgehens. Auch die Verfasser von Werken über mikroskopische Anatomie hielten es meistens für passend, ihren Darlegungen die chemische Betrachtung der Gewebe, wenn nicht einzuflechten, doch vorauszuschicken. Somit glaube ich, durch Hinweisung auf die Praxis vieler bedeutender Männer, einer weiteren Rechtfertigung dieses Theils meines Titels enthoben zu sein. - Sodann habe ich das Werk in Analecten abgefasst in der Absicht, hauptsächlich das neue, nöthige Gute, das Bekannte aber nur zur Herstellung des Zusammenhanges beschreiben zu müssen. Denn warum sollte man den Umfang eines Werkes vergrössern, oder die Geduld und Mittel eines Lesers auf die Probe setzen durch Darstellung von Gegenständen, welche in jedem besseren Lehr- oder Handbuch der allgemeinen Chemie genügend auseinandergesetzt sind. Auch ohne diese Beigaben werden Leser und Forscher genug Stoff zum Nachdenken oder Nacharbeiten in der Mehrzahl der Capitel dieses Werkes finden. - Wenn der eigentlich klinischen Chemie ein viel geringerer Raum gelassen ist, als ihr Inhalt zu füllen erlaubt, so wird man das der Nothwendigkeit zu Gute halten, fundamentale anatomische Thatsachen zunächst festzustellen. Der tägliche Bedarf des Berufes drängt auch mich zur practischen Behandlung der Wissenschaft, und ich habe auch in Betreff dieser eine nicht unbeträchtliche Menge wichtiger Thatsachen zu meiner Verfügung. Im Falle nun Zeit und Umstände es mir gestatten, werde ich diesem Bande etwa innerhalb Jahresfrist einen zweiten folgen lassen und in demselben die Erörterung der übrigen Hauptfragen der anatomischen zugleich mit einer ausführlicheren Darlegung der Grundzüge der klinischen Chemie verbinden. - Ich habe soviel wie möglich Principien und Resultate zu illustriren und Detail zu vermeiden gesucht. Dennoch waren Darstellungen von Processen nicht auszulassen, sondern zugleich mit analytischen Vorgängen und Daten auf das unumgängliche Maass zu beschränken. So genaue analytische Vorschriften, wie sie nöthig wären, um es auch dem Autodidakten zu ermöglichen für Mangel an practischer Führung Ersatz zu finden, schienen mir zu dem Plan des Werkes nicht zu passen. Denn die darin beschriebenen Arbeiten erfordern zur erfolgreichen Ausführung den ganzen Apparat des organisch chemischen Laboratoriums, und wo dieser vorhanden ist, wird auch ihre ganze Methode Träger und Exponenten gegenwärtig haben. - Die Art und Weise, in welcher ich genöthigt worden bin die Hauptfragen polemisch zu behandeln, um Controversen ihrer Erledigung zuzuführen, ist bei jeder Veranlassung im Text so kurz, aber auch so einschneidend wie möglich angegeben worden. Die erste Analecte behandelt die dabei in Betracht kommenden hauptsächlichen Uebelstände in keineswegs erschöpfender, aber, wie zu hoffen steht, genügender Weise, um ihnen durch weiteres Verständniss Abhülfe zu verschaffen." - - Drabkin No. 162

        SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES: [FIRST SERIES]

      London: Swan Sonnenschein, Lowrey & Co.,. 1886. Octavo, pp. [1-3] 4-229 [230: blank],. original maroon cloth, front panel stamped in gold and ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, t.e.g., brown coated endpapers.. Cloth a trifle sunned and just a bit rubbed at head of spine panel. and corner tips, a very good copy. (#90535). First edition, the rare first issue with cancel title leaf, earliest binding with no star on spine panel and publisher's monogram at bottom of same. A collection of five science essays and stories first published by Sonnenschein in as five separate paperbound booklets between 1884 and 1886 and subsequently collected in a single clothbound volume published in 1886. C. H. Hinton was concerned with finding ways of expanding the mind beyond the confines it had been taught to accept as final. His interest in the fourth dimension was the outcome of this search. In the famous analogy, pioneered by Hinton himself in A PLANE WORLD (1886) and by Edwin A. Abbott in FLATLAND (1884), a being of two dimensions would not be able to perceive a three dimensional object, such as a cube, and would perceive it in two dimensions only, as a square. In the same way, a man is not able to perceive any four dimensional objects, and if any are encountered, he explains them in terms of the familiar three dimensions. Hinton's fate was to be the inspiration for other men. His SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES provided ideas that may have influenced the early work of H. G. Wells and his speculations on multi-dimensionality inspired the more famous speculations of P. D. Ouspensky. See Rudy Rucker, "Life in the Fourth Dimension: C. H. Hinton and His Scientific Romances," Foundation 18 (January 1980), 12-18. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1-98 and (2004) II-530. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1097.

        WRITINGS, With Bibliographical and Critical Notes

      London George Routledge and Sons 1886 - 11 volumes. The Riverside edition. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Small 8vo, three-quarter blue morocco and cloth lettered and decorated with foliage motif in panels of spines, t.e.g. Minor rubbing to extremities, else a near-fine set. A nicely bound set of Longfellow's writings. Though much of his work is categorized as lyric poetry, Longfellow experimented with many forms, including hexameter and free verse. His published poetry shows great versatility, using anapestic and trochaic forms, blank verse, heroic couplets, ballads and sonnets. Typically, Longfellow would carefully consider the subject of his poetic ideas for a long time before deciding on the right metrical form for it. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      - London 24.IX.1886. 4 Seiten 8°. Mit blau gedrucktem Briefkopf. Henry Maudsley (1835-1918), englischer Psychiater, seinerzeit der bedeutendste Vertreter seines Faches in Großbritannien. - An den englischen Neurologen und Naturforscher Henry Charlton Bastian (1837-1915), dem er für die Übersendung "of your learned treatise" (vermutlich "Paralyses, Cerebral, Bulbar and Spinal") dankt. - - ". How glad I am that I am not immortal! That is what it has made me feel, since it has shown me how many things I should have to go on to learn, were I gifted with that fatal curse . - - Why such a villainous type, odious to the eyes of gods and men? You might, by a malignant metempsychosis, have been transmigrated into a Yankee - the most offensive animal in creation - to have selected such a type. - - Of course I have not yet read the book - have only looked into it here and there - but I have seen enough to beget a hope that it will clarify the confusion in which I at present am with regard to 'centres' and 'centres', motor and other-kinded in the convolutions. High metaphysical creations I should be apt to call such 'centres' ." [Attributes: Soft Cover]
