        PUBLIC HEALTH, BURIALS AND THE CREMATION OF CORPSES]. Inumazione e Cremazione dei Cadaveri

      Padova: Tip. del Seminario 1886 - PRESENTATION COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, NOT IN OCLC, NOT IN NLM (sic!) ¶ Ours is apparently the only copy on the market, inscribed or otherwise. ¶ In the present volume, Count Alesso Besi discusses interment and cremation of dead bodies, as considered in terms of hygiene and public health, religion, hygiene, economy and emotional sentiment. The most important aspect of the book is its reliance on fact and reason: that while the burial is in accord with teachings of religion, cremation is in direct conflict with human sentiment. Moigne, in the journal "Les Mondes" suggests replacing the ordinary mode of burial with cremation, which aims to convert the scaffolding of human bones in a handful of ashes. The book is further significant not only as a work of scholarship and logic, but because Freemasons in Italy sought to eradicate the crematorium and replace it with burials in cemeteries (SOURCE: La Civilta cattolica. Anno Trigesimosettimo, Vol. IV, della serie decimaterza, p. 342). ¶ The present work is not to be confused with a 9-page pamphlet by Ludovico Brunetti of a similar title, printed in Naples in 1881. ¶ CENSUS OF KNOWN COPIES: Biblioteca comunale Luciano Benincasa (Ancona), Biblioteca nazionale centrale (Firenze), Biblioteca della Facolta di medicina veterinaria dell'Universita degli studi di Milano, Biblioteca del Monumento nazionale di Praglia (Teolo), Biblioteca antica V. Pinali dell'Universita degli studi di Padova, and the Biblioteca della Fondazione Ariodante Fabretti (Torino). ¶ A German translation of the present work was printed Regensburg in 1889. ¶ REFERENCE: Index-catalogue of the Library of the Surgeon-General's Office (Second Series, 1898, vol. III, p. 9) listed under "Cadaver, Care and Disposal of" (sic). Index medicus (vol. IX, Feb. 1887, p. 101) listed under "Inspection and Disposal of the Dead." ¶ PROVENANCE: Presentation inscription from "l'Autore" to the Collegio "Alla Guerce" (Firenze) with their 19th-century armorial stamp on title page (their motto ‘Ingentes tendat ramos et tempora cingat'). ¶ 12mo. 115 pp., complete.

        Taking the pledge will not make bad liquor good, but it will improve it" : A Presentation Copy of Huck Finn

      New York 1886 - Signed Book. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade). New York: Charles Webster, 1886. Second American edition. 8 3/8 x 6 5/8 in. With several prints, clippings, and other ephemera tipped in. Rebound at the Roycroft bindery. Additional Images Available Upon RequestHistorical BackgroundThe Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Moby-Dick are often contenders for the title of "greatest American novel." Indisputable, however, is Clemens's sense of humor, as his inscribed and signed aphorism on the title page here indicates: "To Mr. Garth W. Cate: Taking the pledge will not make bad liquor good, but it will improve it. Truly Yours, Mark Twain, Nov. 25/06." This is the second American edition, with 174 illustrations by E. W. Kemble and a photogravure plate of a Clemens portrait bust by Karl Gerhardt. Additionally, there is an albumen photograph of Clemens mounted on the recto of the Gerhardt plate, an engraved portrait of Clemens mounted on verso of rear endpaper, several newspaper clippings, and three letters detailing the book's history and travels. Clemens's humorous inscription is explained in an accompanying letter from Garth W. Cate to Victor Jacobs, October 14, 1964. In 1906, Garth Cate was working as the lecture manager for Elbert Hubbard, founder of the Roycroft artisan community in East Aurora, New York. Cate brought his well-worn childhood copy of Huckleberry Finn in to the Roycroft bindery to have it rebound. Hubbard saw the book and suggested Cate send it Clemens to for an inscription, and even offered to write Twain personally. Cate explains: "So I sent HUCK back to its spiritual father, and when it returned I was somewhat shocked, having been sent to a temperance Sunday School by a whiskey fearing mother. . Later on I was to marry a Christian Science practitioner, and when she saw this inscription she exclaimed: 'Why, that is the most immoral thing I ever saw! How could a great author send such a sentiment to a young man?' "Twain was no great fan of the temperance movement, especially its more radical proponents, whom he felt hurt the message. "Temperate temperance is best," Twain said in 1896. "Intemperate temperance injures the cause of temperance, while temperate temperance helps it in its fight against intemperate intemperance. Fanatics will never learn that." He also disparaged the idea of total abstinence, hoping "to totally abstain from total abstinence itself" and disliked temperance pledges, especially when impressed upon youth by older generations.Garth Cate (1883?-1974) was an author, newspaperman, and social activist. He was born is Portage, Wisconsin, worked for newspapers in New York and Chicago, and retired to Tryon, North Carolina, working as a travel consultant. He was involved in literary circles that included Tom Wolfe, George Bernard Shaw, and Carl Sandburg. An early environmentalist and civil rights activist, Cate rubbed elbows with other social reformers such as Margaret Sanger and Roycroft founder Elbert Hubbard.Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) was an American writer and philosopher. He is best known for founding the Roycroft artisan community in East Aurora, New York. Part of the Arts and Crafts movement, Roycroft championed artisanal production and attracted printers, leather workers, metalsmiths, furniture makers, and bookbinders, the latter being one of Hubbard's particular areas of interest. By 1900, the Roycroft philosophy of positive working conditions, communal effort, and passion for creativity had attracted over 500 people to East Aurora. Hubbard was also deeply involved in social issues ranging from civil rights, to woman suffrage, to anti-war efforts. Ironically, he died when a German submarine torpedoed the British passenger liner Lusitania in 1915.Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), also known as Mark Twain, needs no introduction.ConditionSome soiling and reading wear throughout. Early twentieth-century half buckram by the Roycroft. (See website for full description)

        Old Spookses' Pass, Malcolm's Katie, and Other Poems

      N.p., [Toronto]: [James Bain & Son], [1886]. 1st, 2nd issue. Hard Cover. Very Good. New 1/2 leather spine and covers with marbled paper. New endpapers. 224pp. Very Good+ 1886 1st edition, second issue (not 1884 1st issue or 1898 3rd issue). The book was issued first in 1884, with only a few sold (50), and again two years (1886) later with a replaced title page, absent a place and date of publication (this copy). The books third appearance, issued by Briggs, came ten years or so after Crawford's death in 1887. To earn a living, Crawford sold her prose and poetry to newspapers. Isabella Valancy Crawford (1850-1887) Although now considered a leading 19th-century Canadian poet, Isabella Crawford achieved little recognition during her lifetime. Born in Dublin, she immigrated to Canada with her family in the 1850s, eventually settling in North Douro, Ontario. Here she had the occasion to meet Catharine Parr Traill before the family relocated to Peterborough. In 1875 her siblings and father died, leaving Crawford and her invalid mother with scant financial resources., While some of her work appeared in The Favourite and The Toronto Globe and Mail, between 1875 and 1879 she published only in American periodicals. Crawford and her mother relocated to Toronto, and in 1879 she began contributing to the Toronto Globe and the Toronto Evening Telegram. Crawford submitted her work to literary journals but her efforts were rejected, leaving her with no choice but to publish in newspapers. In 1884, struggling to gain recognition, she used her own money to publish "Old Spookses' Pass", "Malcolm's Katie" and Other Poems, a collection of some of her best narrative poems. This collection received critical praise but sold only 50 copies. Apart from newspapers, it was the only publication of Crawford's work during her lifetime. With some difficulty, what remains of her work has been posthumously compiled and published from newspapers and her surviving manuscripts.

        Beschreibung eines Augen-Spiegels zur Untersuchung der Netzhaut im lebenden Auge.Berlin: A. Förstner, 1851. First edition.

      An exceptionally fine copy, unopened in the original wrappers, of Helmholtz's description of his invention of the ophthalmoscope. The invention of the ophthalmoscope by Helmholtz has been called "the greatest event in the history of ophthalmology, which advanced it toward the goal of independence as a specialty" (Gorin).<br/><br/> Grolier, One Hundred Books famous in Medicine 65; Norman 1041; Heirs of Hippocrates 1886; cf. PMM 323; Garrison-Morton 5866; Osler 1521; Waller 4294. <br/><br/> "Herman von Helmholtz described his invention of the ophthalmoscope in a monograph of 1851 <i>Beschreibung eines Augen-Spiegels</i> [the offered item]. The ophthalmoscope was a by-product of Helmholtz's attempt to demonstrate to his students that when the human eye is made to glow with reflected light, the light emitted from the pupil follows the same course it took in entering the pupil. It occurred to Helmholtz that the light could be brought to a focus and the details of the retina made visible. Although visualization of the fundus had been accomplished prior to Helmholtz's publication, both by Johannes Evangelista Purkyne and Charles Babbage, Helmholtz was the first to convince the world of the importance of the ophthalmoscope. The value of the instrument was immediately appreciated by ophthalmologists, including William Bowman, Frans Cornelis Donders, and Albrecht von Graefe, and it was through Graefe's efforts in particular that the ophthalmoscope became part of the armamentarium of ophthalmologists throughout Europe and America.<br/><br/> "Helmholtz is known for his contributions both to physiology and to physics, the latter including a seminal statement of the first law of thermodynamics (<i>Über die Erhaltung der Kraft</i> [1847]). Trained in medicine, he spent his life as a professor and researcher. He never practiced ophthalmology, but his invention, which gave ophthalmologists the ability to examine what had previously been called 'the black cataract,' greatly improved the capacity for diagnosis of eye diseases and thus revolutionized visual science." (Grolier/Medicine).. 8vo (208 x 142 mm), original yellow printed wrappers, uncut and unopened, [1-3] 4-43 [5] pp. Engraved plate by Afinger after Helmholtz. A very fresh and untouched copy.

Vaucaire described the dance in the August 1, 1886, Paris Illustré as 'that wonderful, insolent joke in which two women advanced side by side, each balancing on one foot while keeping the other at the level of the spectators' eyes. They wore silk stockings and cambric and lace drawers, with much swishing of pretty petticoats'" (Donson and Griepp, Great Lithographs by Toulouse-Lautrec).From the Les Maitres de L'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) series, plate 110. "The Masters of the Poster, first published in Paris from 1895 to 1900, is the most famous compilation ever made of the art of the great age of the poster-an art whose new graphic sophistication captured the ebullience of Paris life in the late 19th century, and celebrated the emerging spirit of the 20th century" (Applebaum, The Complete "Masters of the Poster").Paris: Chaix, 1898. 15.5x11.25in, 395x285mm.

        Autograph Transcription, signed ("S. Fillmore Bennett"), of his hymn "The Sweet By-and-By," as part of his Autograph Transcription "History of The Sweet By-and-By copied by the author for C.F. Gunther, Chicago"; with an Autograph Letter of transmission to C.F. Gunther

      Richmond IL may 14 1886 Richmond, IL, may 14, 1886. 12mo. In all, 6 pp. on ruled note paper. Sewn, near fine . Bennett (1836-1898) composed the lyrics to what was to become one of America's most well known hymns in 1861, with music by Joseph P. Webster. The account of its composition, in less than 30 minutes, is given in this manuscript "History": "- I said, 'Webster, what is the matter now?' 'It's no matter,' he replied, 'it will be all right by and by.' The idea of the hymn came to me like a flash of sunlight, and I replied, 'The Sweet By and By! Why would not that make a good hymn?' 'Maybe it would,' he said indifferently. Turning to my desk I penned the words of the hymn as fast as I could write. I handed the words to Webster. As he read his eyes kindled, and stepping to the desk he began writing the notes. Taking his violin, he played the melody and then jotted down the notes of the chorus. It was not over thirty minutes from the time I took my pen to write the words before two friends with Webster and myself were singing the hymn -" "The Sweet By-and-By" was featured in the Academy Award winning film "Sergeant York"; Charles Ives used the tune in his Orchestral Set No. 2; it has become one of America's most reecognizable hymns
