        Lady Noel Byron and the Leighs: some authentic records of certain circumstances in the lives of Augusta Leigh, and others of her family, that concerned Anna Isabella, Lady Byron, in the course of forty years after her separation. [Edited by Ralph Gordon Noel Milbanke, Earl of Lovelace.] Strictly Private. FIRST EDITION.

      Printed for the descendants of Lord & Lady Byron, by William Clowes & Sons. 1887 Half title/limitation leaf; occasional neat pencil notes & underlining. Uncut in orig. pale blue boards, drab spine, paper label; spine a little darkened & hinges a little weak.Wise (Byron) pp111-112. 36 copies printed, of which this is number 2. Inscribed on half title, 'John C. Fox, Goring on Thames. Given to me by Mary Countess of Lovelace, 14 September 1922', and with a further inscription beneath: 'Given to C. Draper by Miss Elsie Fox 1961'. This exceedingly scarce piece of Byroniana (Wise describes it as 'hopelessly unobtainable', noting that 'the larger proportion' of the 36 printed copies were destroyed) belonged, until 1922, to Mary Caroline, Countess of Lovelace. She was married to Ralph Gordon Noel Milbanke, son of William King-Noel, 1st Earl of Lovelace, and Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron's only legitimate daughter. It was given by the Countess of Lovelace to James C. Fox, the noted Byron scholar, and subsequently passed to his daughter, Elsie, who in turn gave it to C. Draper in 1961. A brief letter, paper-clipped on to the leading f.e.p. advises "Christie", i.e. C. Draper, that 'as she [Elsie Fox] gave you the book some years ago it is still yours to do with it as you like best.'. Draper had evidently offered to return the book to the Fox family following the death of Elsie, and this note from Mary Theophilus, Elsie's sister, assures him the book remains his. Milbanke's work forms an attempt to debunk the myths surrounding his grandmother Lady Byron and her sister-in-law Augusta Leigh, and show that their relationship remained one of mutual trust and cordiality.

        The Life Saving Appliances of Joseph Francis. Action of Congress of the United States in Recognition of his Services, March, 1887.

      N.p.: Printed for Private Distribution, 1887 - Quarto. Original plum cloth, title gilt to the spine and upper board, gilt block of Francis's Patent Metallic Life Car to the lower board, bright pink endpapers. The cloth a little rubbed and stained, light toning, otherwise very good. Double frontispiece and 17 other plates, one of them double-page. First edition. Uncommon, OCLC records just 4 copies - US Coast Guard Academy, Smithsonian, NYPL, and Texas Tech. Francis's name was extremely well-known in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, but his fame waned with the frequency of maritime disasters. He devoted his life to the invention of maritime life-saving devices, his most famous being the matallic life car. "In early manhood he was employed by the Government to build lifeboats for its war vessels. He was the first man to use iron for life boats, but when he built his first metallic life car he failed to get any aid from the Government, and so, at his own expense, he established his works on the Jersey coast near Long Branch. His inventive genius ripened as he grew older and he built many lifeboats, rafts, lifecars &c. which were eventually in general use in European countries long before they were adopted in the United States. Congress was slow to recognize his great ability, but eventually passed a resolution tendering him a medal" (New York Times obituary). The present publication, which largely consists of bound up extracts from the Congressional Record, was part of his campaign for recognition. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Heures du Moyen Age

      Paris: Gruel & Englemann, 1887. First edition. Full Morocco. Fine. Lavish 19th century rendering of a Book of Hours using bright chromolithography that cogently replicates the exquisite detail, sublimity and sheer miraculousness of the Medieval biblio staple. Each of the 192 plates (including title page) is unique with the high Gothic ornamentation that is usually encountered only under glass at better art museums. Usually the ornament frames Gothic type of the text in French and Latin, but occasionally the framed is instead a miniature painting. Credits for this production are Engelmann, artistic director and chromolithography; painting, Ed. Moreau; actual printing on stone, A. Pralon.Lush silk moire endpapers. Dentelle ornamentation on leather perimeter. All leaves are bright and clean, and the binding is tight. Gilt TEG. Silk ribbon placemark intact. Metal mounts on boards with crown and initials HE and floreate design for clasp stays. A minor scratch of brown morocco on front board and the most minor of shelfwear besides. Book measures 6.5 by 5 inches, or 16 by 13 cm.Other than loss of leather strap clasps, this is about as good as it gets.

Tafeln, Halbleinenband der Zeit; feines Exemplar.. First Edition of the first, and only, history of bacteriology prior to Bulloch's History of Bacteriology (1938). This book contains 8 mounted photomicrographs, which are original photomicrographs from Robert Koch's 1877 paper "Verfahrungen zur Untersuchung, zum Conserviren und Photographiren ber Bacterien"! - Friedrich August Loeffler (1852- 1915)," bacteriologist and associate of Robert Koch. Born at Frankfurt a. Oder., the son of a military surgeon. Studied in the Kaiser Wilhelm Akademie in Berlin. Served in Franco-German war.

In 1888 was made Prof, of Hygiene in Greifswald and ultimately succeeded Gaffky as Director of the Institut für Infektionskrankheiten in Berlin. Served in Great War and obtained Iron Cross. Died in Berlin after an operation, 1915. Loeffler was a most painstaking and accurate bacteriologist and one of the principal names connected with bacteriology. He discovered the diphtheria and glanders bacilli, and worked successfully at the attenuation of pathogenic virus, disinfection, water bacteriology, typhoid of mice, and many other subjects. He was a great technician and introduced the method of staining cilia, the preparation of blood serum for diphtheria cultures, Loeffler's methylene blue. He recognized the filter-passing character of the virus of foot and mouth disease and spent years trying to effect a cure of it. Loeffler was an excellent teacher, linguist, and writer. He founded the 'Centralblatt fur Bakteriologie'. - see - Abel, Centralbl. f. Bakteriol., 1. Abt. 1915, lxxvi. 241; Gaffky, Deutsche med.

        Des aberrations du sens génésique Quatrieme edition

      Paris: Asselin & Houzeau, 1887. 320p., fourth edition in original printed wraps, foxed throughout, sewn textblock is a bit wavy within and has a slack thread at the title page (but this leaf and the rest are sound), wraps are somewhat edgeworn and front cover bears an inch-long tear. The printed spine panel has several vertical and horizontal cracks that do not affect legibility. One of the earliest 'scientific' studies of sexual 'deviation', this work is frequently cited by Krafft-Ebing and criticized by Moll. Moreau provides a global taxonomy of "excessive" and "perverted" sexual appetites, placing "pederasts, sodomists, saphists, etc." alongside exhibitionists in the class of "frankly nervopathic" individuals. The section on "anamolous intelligences" devotes several pages to male and female homosexuality, which Moreau calls "a sad subject for the honor of humanity." The chapter on the history of aberrations also includes remarks on several Roman emperors given to homoerotic conduct.
