        HISTORY OF WOMAN SUFFRAGE

      New York; Rochester. 1887, 1887, 1887, 1902, 1922, 1922.. Six volumes, with sixty-six plates. Large octavo. Original burgundy publisher's cloth, stamped in blind and gilt. Bindings shelfworn and rubbed, but firmly bound and in nice condition. Very clean and fresh internally. Overall, a very good set. The fourth volume of this set is inscribed by Susan B. Anthony, "Mrs. Mary L. Doe Bay City Michigan In recognition of the aid you gave Mrs. Harper in the preparation of the Michigan Chapter. I give you this huge volume, and also I want to extend to you my thanks for all the good service you have tendered the cause of woman suffrage in your state. Sincerely yours, Susan B. Anthony 17 Madison Street, Rochester, N.Y. 1820 - Feb. 15 - 1902." Mary L. Doe played a prominent role in the woman suffrage movement in Michigan, and was the first president of Michigan's State Equal Suffrage Association, elected in 1884. She was also affiliated with the American Federation of Labor. This volume has also been inscribed (on the leaf following the Susan B. Anthony inscription), by another leader of the woman suffrage movement in Michigan, May Stocking Knaggs. Knaggs inscribed the volume on April 15, 1916 to Mrs. Lillian O. Jemison, "With in deep appreciation of her sincere devotion to woman suffrage and the noble women have laid the foundation stones and superstructure as far toward the capstone." A note at the foot of the first page of the Michigan chapter notes that the history of woman suffrage in Michigan contained herein was in fact written by Mary L. Doe and May Stocking Knaggs. A key work, a record of the various documents that formed the basis of the women's rights movement. The first and second volumes are present in the second edition, while all others are first editions. This work was published over an extended period, accounting for the similar but not uniform bindings, with varying imprints: Volumes I through IV, Rochester, N.Y., Susan B. Anthony; and Volumes V-VI, [New York], National American Woman Suffrage Association. Edited by Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Matilda Joslyn Gage, and Ida Husted Harper, this six-volume set includes the two later supplementary volumes, printed in 1922, following the three-volume first edition, originally published between 1881 and 1887, and the first supplement of 1902. Because of the extended and varied means of publication, complete sets are rare, and generally ex- library. The present set is notable for not being ex- library. The volumes document the speeches, papers, correspondence, and other records of the women's rights movement, and to some degree the temperance and abolition movements as well. The first four volumes include documents from the 19th century, as follow: Volume 1: 1848-61; Volume 2: 1861-76; Volume 3: 1876-85; Volume 4: 1883-1900; with the fifth and sixth volumes covering the period from 1900 to 1920. The introduction to the fourth volume describes the first three volumes as representing "the seed- sowing time of the movement," while the fourth volume captures the harvesting of the first few fruits of that "long period of persistent tilling and sowing." The titlepages of the fifth and sixth volumes bear the motto: "After seventy years came the victory." The set is illustrated with copper- plate, steel-engraved, and photogravure portraits of prominent and lesser known figures in the fight for women's rights.

There is splitting and crude repair of the box hinges but the book itself is a very good copy. Almost certainly from the library of Arthur Wesley Dow, with his library label and number. As issued:

        Codex Astensis qui de Malabayla communiter noncupatur. Edidit Quintinus Sella.

Una carta geografica ripiegata f.t. del territorio della Repubblica di Asti nel 1300 e 9 tavv. in b.n. e a colori f.t. riproducenti con estrema fedeltà parti del codice. Restauri alle brossure. Buon esemplare in barbe. Edizione originale, rara a reperirsi completa di tutto il pubblicato. "Questo codice è una raccolta degli atti più importanti pel comune, a sostegno dei proprii diritti, come: trattati pubblici, bolle, diplomi, carte e titoli di possesso o di pretensioni" (Manno). L'opera, pubblicata nell'arco di sette anni dall'Accademia dei Lincei, riveste una notevolissima importanza per lo studio della storia giuridica astigiana e illustra la storia del prezioso codice, conservato dapprima nell'Archivio di Corte di Vienna e nel 1876 donato al Sella dall'Imperatore Francesco Giuseppe. Lo statista piemontese fece poi dono del codice alla città di Asti, nel cui archivio si trova attualmente. Il Sella curò personalmente la parte storico-illustrativa, mentre della parte paleografica si occuparono L. Re, A. Corvisieri, P. Amat di San Filippo, P. Vayra, che, alla morte del Sella (1884), condusse a termine l'imponente pubblicazione. "Indi è che noi chiameremo Codice Malabaila il prezioso monumento che l'Italia deve all'imperatore d'Austria, poiché si riferisce ad un originale, che nel 1353 si chiamava de Malabaila... Comunque sia, il nome di Malabaila, che noi proponiamo pel Codice oggi recuperato dall'Italia, ricorda una denominazione del secolo XIV, ed è un tributo di lode a chi conservava in quel tempo il prezioso originale con tanta cura, che l'opinione pubblica aveva dato a questo il nome di quello" (Sella). Manno / Promis, II, 11032. Lozzi, I, 134 (in nota).

"One of the arts- and-crafts, anti-mechanistic utopias of the late Victorian age; the primary analogy is to a beehive, with egalitarianism that amounts to oppression, except for a tiny elite who are, in turn, constrained in other ways...I find it beautifully written, but one of the most horrible ideal cultures ever imagined" - Bleiler.

Lady de Saumarez and Lady Loraine are the last two whose pedigree appears in this last volume. Condition: The boards of all three volumes are somewhat knocked and rubbed, with a spot of bleaching or staining to the front of Volume I. Internally, all three volumes are in excellent condition.

        Autograph Letter Signed, three pages 8vo, Centre Harbor, N.H. Written as Quaker date of 7th mo., 20, 1887 (July 20, 1887)

      To a Friend, It is a matter of real regret to me that I am not able to be with you on the occasion of the birthday of our worthy friend, Edwin Thompson [abolitionist]. I have known him as a faithful and self- sacrificing advocate (of) all good causes. More than 50 years ago, I met him at the convention which formed the First Temperance Society in Essex County, and about the same time, at the formation of the Essex Anti- Slavery Society. Since then, his genial face and cheering voice has been rarely missed wherever the Friends of Temperance and Freedom met together. He was always a welcome speaker. Like President Lincoln, he had the gift of story-telling, and his stories were always to the purpose, putting to shame his opponents with ready wit and humor. Through the long Anti- Slavery struggle, his labors were unremitting, but he was always brave and hopeful and, in the midst of persecution, never posed as a martyr. His enthusiasm of humanity was remarkable healthful; there was no whine or cant in it, and he heartily enjoyed it, for it was its own exceeding great reward. It is fitting that we should honor him and congratulate him that his 78th birthday finds him the same cheerful, warm-hearted man we have known so long; and, (it) will not be amiss if we give him some substantial and unsolicited assurance of our esteem and love. O this end, I enclose my mite with the best wishes for his health and happiness. Signed, Ã?I am, truly thy friend, John G. Whittier"

        Ueber sehr schnelle electrische Schwingungen, et al

      Johann Ambrosius Barth Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST PRINTING of Hertz's first three papers on electromagnetic waves; the foundation for wireless communication. "Experimental proof by Hertz of the Faraday-Maxwell hypothesis that electrical waves can be projected through space was begun in 1887, eight years after Maxwell's death. The two main requirements were (a) a method of producing the waves, supposing that they existed, and (b) a method of detecting them once they were produced. Hertz found the first problem easy to solve. He used the oscillatory discharge of a condenser. Detection was much more difficult, because there then existed no means of detecting currents alternating at the high speed of these waves. Hertz in fact used an effect as old as the discovery of electricity itself- the electric spark. By inducing the waves to produce an electrical spark at a distance, with no apparent connection between the oscillator and the spark gap, and by moving the sparking apparatus so that the length of the spark varied, Hertz proved beyond question the passage of electric waves through space... The experiments were reported periodically from 1887 onward in Annalen der Physik und Chemie" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 377). PMM 377 (for the collected edition).In the important first paper of his study, Hertz describes the ingenious apparatus he had devised to produce, detect, and measure the electromagnetic waves, the key to all his later discoveries. The three papers together represent the groundwork and birth of wireless communication. "This discovery and its demonstration led directly to radio communication, television and radar" (Dibner, Heralds of Science, 71). Also includes articles by many other notable scientists including Planck, Clausius, Bunsen, Boltzmann, Rontgen, and Helmholtz."Ueber sehr schnelle electrische Schwingungen." with: "Nachtrag zu der Abhandlung über sehr schnelle electrische Schwingungen." with: "Ueber einen Einfluss des ultravioletten Lichtes auf die electrische Entladung." In: Annalen der Physik, Neue Folge, Band XXXI. The whole volume offered. Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1887. Thick octavo, recent period-style three-quarter black morocco over marbled boards. With seven fold-out plates including two illustrating Hertz's work. Closed tear along fold of one plate, otherwise a fine copy, handsomely bound.

        Observationes anatomicae

      Giovanni Battista Recurti Venice: Giovanni Battista Recurti. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition, with three engraved folding plates, of Santorini's most important contribution to medical science, containing the "major discoveries for which Santorini is known eponymically" (Garrison-Morton). "This work records a number of new anatomical discoveries and corrects many errors of earlier anatomists. Santorini's skill and expertise were so outstanding that his name lives on in such anatomical structures as the accessory pancreatic ducts, risorius muscle, arytenoid cartilages, and duodenal papillae, several of which are described in this book. The text is accompanied by three folding copperplates which beautifully illustrate the musculature of the face, the pelvic musculature and genitalia of a sixteen-year-old girl with a tubal pregnacy, the external muscles of the ear, and detailed anatomy of the male genitalia and larynx" (Heirs of Hippocrates). Garrison-Morton 392; Norman 1887; Waller 8474. Venice: Giovanni Battista Recurti, 1724. Quarto, contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards rebacked. Some scuffing to contemporary marbled boards, very minor dampstaining to margins at rear (not affecting text); otherwise fine.
