        Die Suggestion und ihre Heilwirkung. Mit Abbildungen im Text. Autorisirte deutsche Ausgabe von Sigm. Freud.

      Deuticke,, Leipzig - Wien, 1888 - Leipzig - Wien, Deuticke, 1888. XXVI + 414 + 1 S. Priv. HLwd. der Zeit. DEA. - Ebd. stärker berieben, tlw. leicht stockfleckig, T. m. hds. Bleistift-Notiz, leichte Gbrsp. - Freud promovierte 1881. Er wurde in dieser Zeit von dem mit ihm befreundeten Wiener Arzt Josef Breuer (auch finanziell) unterstützt. 1882 verlobte sich er mit Martha Bernays (1861-1951), seiner späteren Frau, und war als Arzt im Allgemeinen Krankenhaus in Wien tätig, u.a. auch bei Theodor Meynert in der Psychiatrie. 1885/86 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach Paris, um bei dem Neurologen Jean Martin Charcot an der Salpetrière zu lernen, der vor allem durch seine Hypnoseversuche an Hysterikerinnen zahlreiche Forscher faszinierte. 1886 eröffnete Freud eine eigene Praxis in Wien und heiratete seine langjährige Braut . 1889 reiste er zu dem französischen Internisten Hippolyte Bernheim nach Nancy, dem Begründer der medizinischen Suggestionslehre und Wegbereiter der Psychotherapie. Freud entlehnte vor allem von Bernheim das psychodynamische Modell von Widerstand und Übertragung. Dieser begriff die Krankheit als eine neurophysiologische Fehlregulation, wonach pathogene Autosuggestionen einen unheilvollen Widerstand gegen Suggestionen von außen aufbauen und eine Korrektur der Fehleinstellung verhindern. Bernheim definierte den Übertragungsweg der Suggestion analog zum neurophysiologischen Reflexmodell: die (Wort-)Suggestion verläuft zentripetal zum Gehirn, dort wird sie -- sofern der Empfänger seine Kritik ausgeschaltet hat, d.h. die Suggestion "glaubt" -- automatisch zentrifugal in eine Körperbewegung umgesetzt, wobei auch vegetative Funktionen, wie Herzschlag, Verdauung oder Monatsblutung therapeutisch beeinflußt werden können. Somit wurde erstmals das gesprochene Wort zum Hauptinstrument der Psychotherapie erklärt: "das Wort allein genügt" (Bernheim). Freud wandte nun in seiner nervenärztlichen Praxis die (hypnotische bzw. kathartische) Suggestivtherapie an . (DBE). Deutsch [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Unteres Kapital u. Ecken bestoßen u. berieben, Text papierbedingt gebräunt u. z. Tl. fingerfleckig, im hint. Falz aufgeplatzt. Henze I, 200 ff. Die überaus seltene Promotionsarbeit des bedeutenden österreichischen Afrika-Forschers Oscar Baumann (1864-1899). Seine gründlichen Aufnahmen über die Besteigung des Durmitors, während einer Reise durch Montenegro im Jahr 1883, bewegten Oskar Lenz, der 1885 die österreichisch-ungarische Kongo-Expedition vorbereitete, ihn einzuladen, die Expedition als Topograph zu begleiten. B. erkrankte jedoch nahe Stanley Falls, und wurde in einem Lager zurückgelassen, wo er während seines Aufenthaltes die Swahili-Sprache erlernte. Seine Rekonvaleszenz verbrachte er auf der Insel Fernando Póo, von deren Hauptstadt aus er eine zweimonatige Rundreise antrat und mit seinen Beobachtungen wertvolle Beiträge zur Kenntnis der Insel und ihrer Bewohner, der Bube, von deren Sprache er zwei Vokabularien zusammenstellte, lieferte. - 1887 promovierte B. in Leipzig mit dem `Versuch einer Monographie von Fernando Póo`, einer Vorarbeit zu vorliegendem Werk. In dem angebundenen Werk beschreibt B. eine Reise, die ihn als Begleiter des deutschen Forschungsreisenden Hans Meyer 1888 nach Ostafrika führte, um den Kilimandscharo zu bezwingen. Die Expedition durchquerte - von der Ostküste ausgehend - die damals noch völlig unbekannte Gebirgslandschaft zwischen den Flüssen Pangani und Umba. Wegen an der Küste ausgebrochener Araber-Unruhen sahen sie sich am südlichen Pare-Gebirge zur Umkehr gezwungen. Das Ergebnis dieser Expedition war die erste topographische Aufnahme von Usambra. Seine kartografischen und ethnologischen Aufzeichnungen waren für die schnell folgende wirtschaftliche Erschließung des Landes von unschätzbarem Wert.

        VOYAGE OF WILL ROGERS TO THE SOUTH POLE.

      Launceston, Tasmania: Printed at the "Examiner" and "Tasmanian" Office, [1888] - Small octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-40, original dark green pebble-grain limp cloth wrappers, front cover stamped in black, floral endpapers. First edition. First-person fictional account (presented as a factual memoir) of an English sailor, separated from his whaler in the antipodes and cast up on a warm Antarctic land with unusual flora and fauna and an intelligent race of ethically-advanced people, the Bencolians. This 17,000-word Robinsonade thus merges into a utopian fantasy. The hero declines the temptation of remaining there as an honored guest and, taking with him some gold dust and a large diamond, he sets off in a handmade boat and finds a ship to bring him home. An unusual aspect of the story, running counter to the usual social values of British fiction in this period, is the hero's decision, in spite of his sudden wealth, "to keep in business, as it was an occupation, which everyone ought to have, whether well off or not." A pleasantly told -- if unspectacular, tale -- and a very scarce book, with no copies recorded in any of the libraries of COPAC (including the British Library).

        GULISTAN OR ROSE GARDEN OF SA'DI, Faithfully Translated into English

      Benares: Printed by the Kama Shastra Society for Private Subscribers Only, 1888. First Edition, printed for private subscribers only. 8vo, bound in publisher? s original full stiff vellum with gilt ruled and lettered spine, the covers bevelled and with blind ruled borders. viii, 282 pp. An excellent copy, fine and very well preserved with some light and of course, expected mellowing to the white vellum. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT BURTON ITEM, and according to Penzer (p. 177), the distinction between the first and second issue of the book is only the presence of the date on the spine. As a possible indication of this book's scarcity, Penzer quotes 17 sale room prices for Burton's KAMA SUTRA, 10 for the ANANGA RANGA, 26 for the PERFUMED GARDEN, but only three for the GULISTAN. The Persian poet Sa?di wrote ?The Rose Garden? in 1258. It has readership throughout Asia and Africa, and has been translated into Latin, English, French, German, and Dutch. The Kama Shastra Society wished to introduce the first complete and unexpurgated translation into English, and succeeded in issuing a work of elegance and simplicity. The text includes chapters on the morals of Dervishes, the advantages of Silence, on love and old age, and on rules of conduct in life. An important edition of this Persian Classic.

        Autograph letter signed "E. Lalo."

      4 pp. of a bifolium. Small octavo. Dated May 20, [18]88. In black ink. In French (with translation). A fascinating letter in which Lalo opines about Wagnerian music drama and his own "French" approach to composition. He is stupified by the overwhelming success of his opera, Le Roi d'Ys, which had just premièred two weeks ago. His refusal to imitate Wagner, and decision to stick to short forms and goal-oriented drama probably contributed to its immediate appeal. Lalo nevertheless remains committed to "pure" instrumental music, which he judges superior to opera. "Not being Wagner, and not wanting... to become his imitator, I have done absolutely the opposite of what his system teaches: I used very short forms, and I voluntarily put aside all developments in order to precipitate the dramatic action. Whether this is good or bad, I don't know; [but]... I never bore the audience... The French don't like long dissertations on stage... But before, as after May 7 [i.e the premiere of Le Roi d'Ys], I keep the absolute opinion that you know so well: ... the only true music is the pure music for the quartet, the orchestra, and the concertos with orchestra." Slightly soiled; creased and slightly split at folds; two fileholes to right margin of second leaf, with no loss to text; remnants of adhesive to lower left portion, obscuring one word of text. . Le Roi d'Ys, which was premièred at the Opéra-Comique (Salle Favart) in Paris on May 7, 1888, did indeed bring Lalo the acclaim he had sought for most of his musical career. It is his instrumental music, however, that has secured him a lasting place in music history, "for it represents a decisively new direction in French music at that period, taken more or less simultaneously by César Franck and Saint-Saëns." As the present letter implies, Lalo had been accused - like many progressive composers of the time - of imitating Wagner; but "although he admired Wagner, their styles have little in common." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online.

        The Ghost in The Bank of England.

      James Hogg [1888], London - 8vo. 63pp. Publisher's polychrome binding in varying shades of blue, green and red.Minor edgewear, scuffed and a trifle discoloured here and there, cloth darkened to rear panel. Internally clean, pencil gift inscription to front pastedown. A trifle thumbmarked here and there one gathering stands slightly proud. Nevertheless a very good copy. The author's first book (although attribution is disputed.well it's disputed in the fact that one eminent gentleman says it's Phillpots, a number of others say it isn't; nobody has another viable option, and seeing as no-one has really seen a copy of it floating around for a while it's likely to remain somewhat mysterious. A fair amount of the Phillpotts attribution seems to be based on the fact that he wrote something else for London Society. The jury is still out, having a really long lunch), a slightly different version appeared in "London Society" Magazine in the 1880's, this is the first edition in book form. Stupidly rare. Six copies found on worldcat, only two in the UK (absent from the BL catalogue), no auction records for the last 50 years or so, one of those strange books that appears in Hubin, and on the occasional list of highly thought of oddities and never sees the light of day. A thoroughly presentable copy. Crazy job this bookselling lark. Attribution based on the research of Dr. James Y. Dayananda, Lock Haven State College.#ecat2 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      - Le Roi d'Ys, which was premièred at the Opéra-Comique (Salle Favart) in Paris on May 7, 1888, did indeed bring Lalo the acclaim he had sought for most of his musical career. It is his instrumental music, however, that has secured him a lasting place in music history, "for it represents a decisively new direction in French music at that period, taken more or less simultaneously by César Franck and Saint-Saëns."As the present letter implies, Lalo had been accused - like many progressive composers of the time - of imitating Wagner; but "although he admired Wagner, their styles have little in common." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online. 4 pp. of a bifolium. Small octavo. Dated May 20, [18]88. In black ink. In French (with translation). A fascinating letter in which Lalo opines about Wagnerian music drama and his own "French" approach to composition. He is stupified by the overwhelming success of his opera, Le Roi d'Ys, which had just premièred two weeks ago. His refusal to imitate Wagner, and decision to stick to short forms and goal-oriented drama probably contributed to its immediate appeal. Lalo nevertheless remains committed to "pure" instrumental music, which he judges superior to opera."Not being Wagner, and not wanting. to become his imitator, I have done absolutely the opposite of what his system teaches: I used very short forms, and I voluntarily put aside all developments in order to precipitate the dramatic action. Whether this is good or bad, I don't know; [but]. I never bore the audience. The French don't like long dissertations on stage. But before, as after May 7 [i.e the premiere of Le Roi d'Ys], I keep the absolute opinion that you know so well: . the only true music is the pure music for the quartet, the orchestra, and the concertos with orchestra."Slightly soiled; creased and slightly split at folds; two fileholes to right margin of second leaf, with no loss to text; remnants of adhesive to lower left portion, obscuring one word of text.

        A LIFE'S MORNING

      1888. [one of only 500 copies] In Three Volumes. London: Smith, Elder, & Co., 1888. 2 pp Vol III undated ads. Original terra-cotta cloth. First Edition, which consisted of only 500 copies published on 15 November 1888. Although A LIFE'S MORNING was Gissing's sixth novel published, it was his fourth written (before DEMOS (1886) and THYRZA (1887)); he had written this in three months during 1885, with the title EMILY. James Payn of Smith Elder accepted it then for publication (serially for The Cornhill and in book form for Smith Elder -- each of whom paid Gissing only fifty pounds for the rights to it. Payn insisted not only upon a new title, not only upon publishing it in three volumes rather than Gissing's planned two (without telling Gissing!), but also upon Gissing writing a new ending: Emily Hood was originally to die of heart failure, but in the final form she has a "happily-ever-after" marriage instead.~Payn, with typical unconcern, did not say a word about the book for two years, but when he at length decided to run it as a serial from January to December [1888], he did it with the proviso that Gissing change the ending, a fantastic demand which made the poor author furious. If Gissing wished to receive the badly needed 50 pounds mentioned in the memorandum of agreement, he must mutilate his story, that is, resuscitate his heroine and drag her to the altar. It is no wonder Payn's behavior has earned him in Gissing criticism a reputation for being a pretentious ass and an offensive philistine. A victim of Payn and poverty..., Gissing was not only indignant but filled with shame at having to yield to such a diktat. [Coustillas].~As Coustillas points out, the binder of A LIFE'S MORNING used an imaginative technique to make the volumes appear to be in two different textures of cloth -- blind-stamped with a morocco-grain on the covers but left smooth on the spines and corners -- in imitation of a "half-calf" binding.~This is a very good set, with a few small nicks in the spine ends and with minor wear along the lower edges of the boards; very faint rectangles on the front covers reveal that this set, like most of the 500, went directly from the publisher to a lending library (though there are no other such indications).

The president not being present, and the following directors were found present.Benj Guggenheim.Richard Clive.There not being directors enough present to constitute a quorum, the meeting was adjourned.R. Clive V.P.Att. Benj Guggenheim Secty. Historical Background Benjamin Guggenheim (1865-1912) was born in Philadelphia as the fifth of the seven sons of the wealthy Meyer Guggenheim. When Benjamin was twenty, he began managing the family's silver-mining operation in Leadville, Colorado, where he received his nick name the "Silver Prince." While in Leadville, Benjamin first saw the great potential of the smelting industry. With his family's backing, Benjamin built the first smelting plant in Pueblo, Colorado, and established the Philadelphia Smelting and Refining Company. Following the first plant's enormous success, several more plants were built around the United States. The company's mining and smelting silver, lead, and copper proved profitable and became the focus of the Guggenheim family's business. Benjamin and the rest of his family were brought incredible wealth by the success of the company. At the time of his death, Benjamin was estimated to be worth around $95,000,000.Benjamin originally planned to return from Europe on the Lusitania, but the trip was cancelled due to repairs needed on the ship. He then purchased a first-class ticket for the maiden voyage of the Titanic. When the ship famously collided with the iceberg, Benjamin and his secretary changed into their warmest clothes and put on life jackets. After seeing the scene unfold Benjamin and his secretary are reported to have refused their spots on a life boat and instead helped women and children into the remaining boats. "We've dressed up our best," Benjamin allegedly said, "and are prepared to go down like gentlemen."

First edition of this extraordinary travel book. It took nine years to write, the 600.000 words are as epic as the journey itself, the style full of archaisms and constructions drawn from medieval English, the Old testament, and Latin, the text lithred with Arabic words and phrases. The geological and geographical descriptions are of such accuracy and detail that it became a military textbook for the british Army in the final phrases of the Arab revolt. The sensitive observation of bedouin life is unsurpassed, whether describing how scarlet dye is made from toadstools and Camels' urine or the construction f tent ropes. T.E. Lawrence describes Doughty as coming away with "the soul of the desert"
