        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.

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.

        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.

      . Medical Record, 35. - New York, June 4, 1887, 4°, IV, 728 pp., zahlreiche Abbildungen, feiner Halbpergameinteinbandim Stil der Zeit.. First Edition! - "A landmark paper from America, the beginning of cosmetic rhinoplasty" McDowell - "Roe invented the intranasal approach for corrective rhinoplasty". - John 0. Roe, M.D., LL.D. (1848-1915) was born at Patchgogue, Long Island in a family descended on both sides from English ancestors who were among the earliest settlers of Providence, Rhode Island. He graduated from the University of Michigan and received the degree of M.D. in 1870 from this University. Coming to New York, he matriculated at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, receiving his diploma in the class of 1871. After a year of graduate courses in New York, Roe entered upon the special practice of diseases of ear, nose, and throat in Rochester, New York. He soon recognized the necessity of additional training and to secure this went to Europe where, for a period of two years, he worked in clinics in Vienna, London, and Berlin, notably with Sir Morell Mackenzie. Returning to Rochester, he became laryngologist to the Rochester Hospital. - In 1887, Roe gave this paper on an intranasal approach "without wounding the skin" for the correction of saddle nose deformity. - Garrison & Morton, No.5754.4

        Unrest, or the newer Republic .

      1887 - 8vo., pp. vii, [1], 311, [1], a very good copy in the original grey cloth blocked in black and lettered in gilt.First edition, and a splendid response to W. H. Mallock's celebrated New Republic by the prolific angling author W. Earl Hodgson. The mode of the novel, a sort of philosophical dialogue à clef, derives directly from The New Republic, although the setting differs, in that angling plays much more prominent a role. Unrest, or the newer Republic is dedicated to Mallock, and one of its interlocutors, Hallock, is clearly Mallock himself. Not in Sadleir or Wolff; Library Company of Philadelphia and Texas only in NUC and Supplement; OCLC adds no further copies.
