         Grundriss der Gynäkologischen Operationen.

      Leipzig und Wien, Franz Deuticke, 1888, 8, X, 352 pp., mit 134 Holzschnitten, feiner Halbledereinband St.a.Tit. feines Exemplar. Erste Auflage! "Besonders erfolgreich hat sich Hofmeier auf operativem Gebiete betätigt: hier bot sich ihm ein großes Feld, sein ausgezeichnetes operatives Geschick und Können zu verwerten. Die operative Technik beherrschte er. wie selten einer er operierte so übersichtlich. gewebsschonend und technisch so vollendet, daß es eine Freude war. ihm zu assistieren oder beim Operieren zuzusehen. Zahlreiche Operationsmethoden und Verbesserungen gynäkologischer Operationen verdanken ihm ihre Entstehung erinnert sei an seine Arbeiten über die Myomotomie und über die "retroperitoneale" Stilversorgung bei supravaginalen Amputationen. Intensiv beschäftigte er sich mit der Behandlung des Uteruskarzinoms. Zur ausschließlichen Strahlenbehandlung operabler Karzinome konnte er sich nicht entschließen: sein therapeutisches Vorgehen bei operablen Karzinomen wurde unter dem Einfluß der Strahlenbehandlung aber insofern beeinflußt, als er jahrelang auf die erweiterte abdominale Totalexstirpation zugunsten der lebenssichereren erweiterten vaginalen Totalexstirpation verzichtete und diese vaginal operierten Fälle dann nachträglich noch bestrahlte. Die Hoffnung auf diese Weise günstigere Resultate zu erzielen, hat sich nicht erfüllt. Hofmeier kehrte deshalb in den letzten Jahren wieder zur abdominalen Totalexstirpation zurück. Eine besondere Genugtuung war es für ihn, als ich im Jahre 1922 feststellen konnte, daß unsere Resultate mit der Strahlenbehandlung des inoperablen Kollumkarzinoms (11,3% 5 jährige Dauerheilung) sich mit den Erfolgen derjenigen Kliniken messen konnten, die größere Erfahrungen auf dem Gebiete der Strahlentherapie besaßen. Wie sehr Hofmeier auch im Auslande als hervorragender gynäkologischer Operateur geschätzt wurde, beweist wohl die Tatsache, daß er im Jahre 1909 von der American gynaecological Society zur Teilnahme und Übernahme eines Referates bei der hundertjährigen .Jubiläumsfeier der ersten von Mc Dowell ausgeführten Ovariotomie eingeladen wurde. Zu dieser Feier war an je einen Vertreter der drei großen europäischen Kulturnationen, Deutschland, England. Frankreich, der an der Ausbildung der Ovariotomie in dem vergangenen Jahrhundert einen besonders hervorragenden Anteil genommen hatte, eine Einladung ergangen. Diese Vertreter waren für Deutschland: Hofmeier, für England: Herbert Spencer, für Frankreich: Porz.Sein "Grundriß der gynäkologischen Operationen", aus reichster operativer Erfahrung heraus entstanden, erschien auch in französischer und russischer Ubersetzung."

         Hector Berlioz. Sa Vie et Ses Oeuvres Ouvrage Orné de Quatorze Lithographies Originales par M. Fantin-Latour.

      Paris: A la Librairie de l'Art, 1888. Red Half Calf. Marbled Boards. . Fine. Folio, 306 by 213 mm. xvi, 386, [2] pp. With 14 original lithographs by Fantin-Latour, 3 other plates hors-texte, and 122 engravings illustrating the text. The Fantin-Latour lithos are outstanding, and the work is greatly augmented as well with the numerous engraved theatrical scenes, portraits and caricatures of Berlioz and his contemporaries, and several facsimiles of Berlioz's written scores. Jullien (1845-1932) was a prolific opera and theatre critic who wrote extensively on Wagner also, the relationship of Goethe and music, and the eighteenth century stage. This Berlioz biography originally appeared, in a much reduced form -- it was only 198 pages -- in 1882. Other than a few torn tissue guards, this copy is pristine, with an impressive half calf binding.

         Dwarf Stories, by E.M.P.

      , 1888. 1888. Whimsical Victorian fairy tale manuscript, presented as a Christmas gift in 1888. Detailed pen-and-ink drawings accompany three wry stories of misadventure, starring a spellbound prince, a vengeful fairy, and an overburdened dwarf. The first story, "The Dwarf with the Yellow Nose," recalls elements of the Sleeping Beauty legend. When a wicked fairy's invitation to the palace goes astray, she curses the infant prince with a yellow nose so monstrous that his royal parents die on the spot. Raised by peasants, the disfigured baby grows into a good-hearted dwarf until a beggar maid kisses him, revealing him to be the prince, and the maid his destined princess. In the second story, "What Became of the Yellow Nose," the wicked fairy tries to salvage the prince's cast-off yellow nose for later use, but ends up accidentally attaching it to her own face, with comic results. The final story, "The Story of the Storm Dwarf," has the feel of a personal allegory. Under ominous skies, the narrator encounters a miserable dwarf struggling under the burden of 365 parcels, one for each day of the year. Rather than carry one parcel each day, the Storm Dwarf insists on tying all the year's burdens together and bearing them as one. When the narrator divides the parcels, "sorting out the shapeless masses of 'Supposes,' 'Perhapses,' & 'Probablies,'" the storm clouds clear. The narrator notes: "I shall have, I fear, to keep a good look out on Jan. 1st 1889, lest my little friend should from old habit, proceed to tie together the whole year's allowance into one burden & so make the weather of 1889 as cloudy and dull as that of 1888." This neatly penned manuscript, with its gentle humor and inspirational bent, offers a window into Victorian women's practices of reading, writing, and giving. Dwarf Stories recalls the work of Emmeline Mary Plunket, a contemporary children's author (Merrie Games in Rhyme from ye Olden Time, 1886; and Very Short Stories in Very Short Words, 1887), but the relationship between "E.M.P.," "Cousin Nellie," and recipient "Vera Lowe" is unclear, and the attribution to Plunket is speculative only. A delightful survival. Twelvemo measuring 6.25 x 4 inches, original limp black roan ruled in gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled. 69 manuscript pages in ink containing three original fairy tales, unused blank pages at rear. Six original pen and ink illustrations, initialed and dated by "E.M.P." Ink gift inscription to first leaf: "Vera Lowe / With best love and good Christmas wishes / from Cousin Nellie / Xmas 1888." Light wear to spine and edges, front free endpaper starting. Housed in a custom clamshell box.

         On the Coeliac Affection." [In:] Saint Bartholomew's Hospital Reports ? Vol. XXIV

      Smith, Elder & Co, London 1888 - First edition. xxxi, [i], 448, 104 (tables) pp., Gee's paper on pp. [17]-20. 8vo. The first modern published description of coeliac (or celiac) disease, an autoimmune disorder that affects the body's ability to digest gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains. "Coeliac disease (non-tropical sprue, idiopathic steatorrhoea) was first described by Gee. Later Thaysen (No. 3550) studied the disease, which acquired the eponym 'Gee-Thaysen disease'" (Garrison-Morton-Norman).The pediatrician Samuel Gee (1839-1911) first described the condition in a 1887 lecture before the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, and his paper was published here for the first time in the Saint Bartholomew's Hospital Reports for 1888. Gee acknowledges an earlier description of the disease by the 1st-century Greek physician Aretaeus, who also gave the disease its name. His paper focuses on the disease's effects on small children, describing symptoms and possible courses of treatment. His conclusion, that "if the patient can be cured at all, it must be by means of diet," is correct, however he fails to prescribe a gluten-free diet. He forbids cow's milk, fruits and vegetables, as well as "highly starchy food, rice, sago, corn-flour" but does allow thinly sliced and well toasted bread. Red meat is allowed, provided it is raw and pulverized before eating. Gee reports hearing of success with a diet of "a quart of the best Dutch mussels daily" but, not surprisingly, the poor child fed that diet refused to continue with it beyond a year.Despite the prevalence of gluten-free products and diets in our culture, currently only about 1% of the US population suffers from coeliac disease, while even fewer have a doctor-diagnosed wheat allergy. Garrison-Morton-Norman 3491 Publisher's maroon cloth, gilt-lettered and decorated. Light rubbing to binding and scuffing to rear cover xxxi, [i], 448, 104 (tables) pp., Gee's paper on pp. [17]-20. 8vo [Attributes: First Edition]

         PIONEER DAYS ON PUGET SOUND

      Seattle: C. B. Bagley, 1888. FIRST EDITION. This is an account of the 1850s in Seattle by one of the founders of the city, offered here in a copy that is exceptionally well preserved. Tweney notes that only about 300 copies were printed privately by the author with the intent of distributing them to friends (with none for sale). "An unknown number were distributed, but the majority were still in Bagley's printing shop when the Seattle fire of 1889 completely destroyed the shop along with all of the remaining copies. These circumstances combined to make it one of the rarest of early Washington Territorial imprints." Arthur A. Denny (1822-99) was the leader of the so-called "Denny Party" of pioneers who ventured from Illinois to Puget Sound, arriving in November of 1851. They first landed at Alki, but soon realized that the eastern side of Elliott Bay was a much better location to settle. This area is now Pioneer Square, the historical heart of the city of Seattle. A graduate of Yale, Henry Bradford Loomis (1853-1939) practiced law in Seattle and San Francisco, and spent much of his life in private study and travel.. 173 x 122 mm.

         PIONEER DAYS ON PUGET SOUND

      C. B. Bagley, Seattle 1888 - 173 x 122 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 3/4"). 83 pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's brown cloth, blind stamped silver titling on cover. In a modern brown morocco-backed clamshell box. Front free endpaper with the author's presentation inscription to Henry B. Loomis (see below); title page with Loomis' stamp; a single pencil notation correcting a date on p. 69; errata slip bound before p. 83. Tweney, Washington 89 #12; Howes D-253a, Graff 1053. Not in Sabin. A one-inch square faintly showing the shadow of a label on upper cover, verso of title and first page slightly toned (probably caused by a laid-in newspaper clipping), otherwise the contents virtually without fault. AN OUTSTANDING COPY of a fragile book difficult to find even half this good. This is an account of the 1850s in Seattle by one of the founders of the city, offered here in a copy that is exceptionally well preserved. Tweney notes that only about 300 copies were printed privately by the author with the intent of distributing them to friends (with none for sale). "An unknown number were distributed, but the majority were still in Bagley's printing shop when the Seattle fire of 1889 completely destroyed the shop along with all of the remaining copies. These circumstances combined to make it one of the rarest of early Washington Territorial imprints." Arthur A.

         William Sherman

      February 1, 1888. Autograph Letter Signed “W.T. Sherman,” three pages, 5.5” x 9.25”, front and verso. Army Building, New York, February 1, 1888. To [Logan C.] Murray. Lightly soiled in lower right of first page. Fine condition.

In full, “I send you a full list of Men [not present] prominent in New York State furnished me in confidence, the Stars indicating preference – all known to be friends of General Grant. I did intend to come down today but Mrs. Sherman arrived from Pittsburg last night – completely exhausted & demands my attention. I will be down however tomorrow or next day. Could you meanwhile complete a list for the Committee in number according to the Resolution made at the 5th Ave Hotel, and prepare for publication a notice announcing their names &c – I think this Committee should be asked to ‘canvas the Subject’ and to meet at the Gentlemans Parlor say two days before the anniversary of Gen. Grant to formulate the ‘Plan’ for submission to the General Meeting at the same place one year from the date of the other meeting as though that had been intended from the start. If Genl Corliss [sic, Collis] will surely be on hand I can promise if notified to come to the Bank say at 1. PM Friday. I am made use of by so many parties that I find it embarrassing – General Indiference [sic] is a harder enemy to deal with than Positive opposition.”

Housed in a custom-made brown cloth covered four-flap folder, lettered in gilt on a burgundy label on the spine: “William Tecumseh Sherman A.L.S. February 1, 1888 to Murray”.

General Ulysses S. Grant was born on April 27, 1822. He had died on July 23, 1885. On April 28, 1888, the “New-York Tribune” reported, in part, “The birthday of General Grant was celebrated last night at a dinner at Delmonico’s, at which there was a large representative gathering of men of all political creeds. The large dining-room presented a novel appearance. The guests were seated at nine round tables, each with its own president, who was one of the committee of fourteen appointed some weeks ago to make the arrangements. The room was gay with flowers, and three beautiful oil portraits of General Grant hung on the walls, draped in the Stars and Stripes. General W.T. Sherman, chairman of the committee, presided over the whole dinner and did the honors of the first table, below the central portraits. At that table there was a vacant chair, wreathed with evergreens. Roscoe Conkling’s place would have been there [former Sen. Conkling of New York had died on April 18th]…” The names of the men who “presided over the other tables” are then listed, including “General Charles H.T. Collis (secretary of the committee) … Logan C. Murray.”

In 1874, New York banker Logan C. Murray met with seven other bankers and organized the American Bankers Association. He was President of the A.B.A. when General Sherman wrote this letter.

         Priapeia

      Athens [London]: imprinted by the Erotika Biblion Society [H. S. Nichols and Leonard Smithers] for private distribution only,, 1888 [1889]. or the sportive epigrams of divers poets on Priapus now first completely done into English prose from the original Latin with introduction notes explanatory and illustrative and excursus: to which is appended the Latin text. Octavo (211 x 132 mm). Near contemporary dark purple morocco, spine gilt in compartments with titles direct, boards bordered with gilt rules, board edges gilt-ruled, turn-ins with gilt rolls and tooling, dark red silk endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. 28 near-contemporary original watercolour illustrations. Ends and corners a little rubbed, a few other minor scratches to covers, superficial split at front hinge but all holding firm, internally fresh, an excellent copy. First edition, unique erotically extra-illustrated copy with 28 original watercolours explicitly depicting a range of sex acts, number 54 of 250 copies of the first issue, of Richard Burton's anonymous translation (the first literal and complete into English) of the notorious Priapeia, which was a collection of mostly erotic or ribald Latin poems and epigrams, many drawn from inscriptions found on surviving statues of the god Priapus, the Roman God of fertility and erections. Though all were anonymous, the Introduction here postulates that some must have been authored by the likes of Ovid, Petronius, Catullus, Martial, and other such notably salacious Roman authors who lived around the time of the birth of Christ. This is one of 250 copies only of the very scarce first issue (dated 1888 but in fact issued in 1889 - a second issue of 500 copies was put out in 1890), and was the first publication of the Erotika Biblion Society set up by decadent publisher Leonard Smithers. Although Burton dissociated himself from the book, letters between him and Smithers show that they were both fully involved with this translation, and were planning other similar unexpurgated translation projects, before Burton died in 1890. This unique extra-illustrated copy has Burton's name added in pencil to the title page in an early hand, and has the ex-libris of an A. J. Cox, whose took for his library motto: "Vita sine literis mors est" ("Life without literature is death").

        Jizai Kyoikuho Kuzai]. The Teaching by Pictures the Way of Impraving Freely am Easely the Natural Constitution of Man [sic].

      - Ritsuma Akiko, 1888 (Meiji 21). Broadside 70x53cm, woodblock printed, folding into publisher's limp cloth covers 17x13cm with printed label. Covers browned with a splodge on the back; a nice copy An enchanting and self evident exposition on the value of pictures in learning. Seemingly as simple as a phrenology chart but judging by the amount of text worked into all those different parts of the brain perhaps a lot more complex. From the little, as an illiterate, I can glean on brain function as outlined here this might sit somewhere between phrenology and neurophysics. The open area at the very centre of the brain is labelled 未è - unknown.
