        Die Entwickelung von Ascaris megalocephala mit besonderer Rücksicht auf die Kernverhältnisse.

      - Jena, Verlag von Gustav Fischer, 1889, Folio, 48 pp., 6 Abb., 6 lithfarb. Tafeln mit je einer Seite Tafelerklärungen, feiner Halbleinenband mit marmorierten Deckelbezügen im Stil der Zeit; St.a.Tit. Erste Ausgabe des Abdruck aus der Festschrift zum siebzigsten Geburtstag von Carl Kupffer! - Mit der Entdeckung der Keimbahn bei Ascaris traf Boveri zunächst auf ein seit mehreren Jahrzehnten diskutiertes Problem. Schon in den sechziger Jahren hatten Weismann, Metschnikoff und Leuckart in der Entwicklung des Insekteneies an dessen einem Pol die "Urgeschlechtszellen" vorgefunden und festgestellt, daß aus ihnen sämtliche Spermien oder Eier hervorgehen. Auf diese Beobachtungen hatten Weismann 1885 und andere Forscher die "Keimbahntheorie" gegründet. Sie besagt, daß das Keimzellenmaterial ganz allgemein vom Ei in ununterbrochener Linie durch die Entwicklung des Individuums hindurch bis zur Bildung der Geschlechtszellen führt und dabei vom Soma unabhängig bleibt. Diese Annahme hatte eine stammesgeschichtlich sehr wichtige Konsequenz, die vor allem von Weismann mit großer Schärfe herausgearbeitet wurde. Wenn die gleichsam ruhende Keimbahn und die somatischen, funktionierenden Organe so unabhängig voneinander bleiben, dann ist eine Vererbung somatisch erworbener Eigenschaften nicht denkbar. - Für diese Keimbahnlehre mußten Boveris Untersuchungen grundlegende Beweisstücke werden, denn vermöge der Diminution ließen sich bei Ascaris Keimbahn und somatische Entwicklung mit einer vorher nicht bekannten Klarheit Zelle für Zelle verfolgen. Insbesondere ist die große Untersuchung "Die Entwicklung von Ascaris megalocephala mit besonderer Rücksicht auf die Kernverhältnisse" von 1899 eine der hervorragendsten Arbeiten auf diesem Felde geblieben, von Boveri seinem ehemaligen Lehrer, dem Anatomen C. von Kupffer, gewidmet, unter dessen Leitung er einst seine Dissertation ausgeführt hatte. Es sind ihr mustergültige Abbildungen beigegeben, in denen sich Boveris ganze Liebe und Sorgfalt in morphologischen Dingen offenbart. - Der Diminutionsvorgang bei Ascaris stellte jedoch noch ein weiteres Problem, das im Kreuzungspunkt von Embryologie und Vererbungsforschung liegt: das Problem der erbungleichen Kernteilung und, in Zusammenhang damit, dasjenige der embryonalen Differenzierung. Jedes Ei entwickelt sich sehr rasch durch Zellteilungen zu einem vielzelligen Körper, dessen Zellen zunächst noch sehr ähnlichen Typus haben. Dann setzt die Differenzierung ein. Die einen Zellen entwickeln sich zu Muskelzellen, andere zu Darmzellen, noch andere zu Nervenzellen usw. Sie werden verschieden, sowohl im Bau ihres Plasmas als auch im Typus ihrer Kerne. - Sucht man nach den Ursachen dieser Differenzierung, so steht man vor einer paradoxen Situation. Die Vermehrung der Zellen, eine der Grundlagen der Embryonalentwicklung, ist an den Mechanismus der Kernteilung gebunden, und dieser Mechanismus sorgt dafür, daß alle Zellen den gleichen Chromosomenbestand - denjenigen des befruchteten Eies - beibehalten. Wie ist dann, da die Chromosomen Erbträger sind, eine Entwicklung zu verschiedenen Zelltypen möglich? Müssen nicht, damit die Zellen sich verschieden differenzieren können, zunächst die Erbfaktoren verschieden verteilt werden? - In der Tat hatte Weismann schon 1885 gefordert, daß sich die Kernsubstanz, d. h. die Chromosomen, gesetzmäßig während der Ontogenese verändert. Die einfachste Annahme wäre die, "daß sich bei jeder Kernteilung das spezifische Plasma des Kerns (d. h. die Chromosomen) in zwei ihrem Wesen nach ungleiche Hälften teilte, so daß dann auch der Zellkörper, dessen Charakter ja durch den Kern bestimmt wird, umgeprägt würde". Weismann erkannte an, daß die Beobachtungen Straßburgers und van Benedens für eine identische und nicht für eine ungleiche Chromosomenteilung sprachen. Doch habe Straßburger "wohl die Sicherheit der Beobachtung überschätzt", und gegenüber van Beneden dürfe man doch nicht vergessen, "daß das, was wir da sehen, nicht die .

        The Heritage of Dedlow Marsh and Other Tales

      London: Macmillan. 1889. First. First English edition, issued a few weeks after the American edition. Two volumes. Decorative blue cloth. Slight nicking to the crown of volume one, a nice, very good or better copy. This copy Inscribed by the author on the half-title: "Madame Van de Velde, from her friend Bret Harte, 15 Hamilton Terrace (?), London, N.W. Oct 19:/89." Harte spent the last twenty years of his life in England, where he acquired an agent and a mentor in Hydeline Van de Velde. After the failures of his health and finances in the later part of the 1870s, she encouraged him to write about the American West. Despite the fact that Harte remained married, he stayed with Van de Velde (in some scholarly work he has been described as a "kept" man). He died at her country home and she buried him in the churchyard of St. Peter's, Frimley, England under a red granite stone engraved with a line from one of his own poems: "Death Shall Reap the Braver Harvest." According to BAL this title was advertised for publication on October 18, and the British Museum received their copy on the 19th -- the day this copy was inscribed, thus this is a very early copy and a wonderful association. .

        The Hero of Gettysburg transfers to the E&NA Railway a deed of ?one million acres, more or less? of timber lands ?to aid in the construction of the European and North American Railway? ? three years later, the railway was completed, linking Bangor, Maine, to St. Croix, New Brunswick, Canada

      "Manuscript Document Signed ?J.L. Chamberlain? as Governor of Maine, countersigned ?Wm. P. Frye? as Maine Attorney General (from 1889-1901 and 1901-1905, as President pro tempore of the U.S. Senate, Frye was next in line to the presidency), 3p, 9.5? x 15?, front & verso on two conjoined sheets; five dockets on fourth page. State of Maine, May 13, 1868. Large Chamberlain signature and blind embossed stamping of the State Seal of Maine. Fine condition. In part, ?I, Joshua L. Chamberlain, Governor of the State of Maine, by virtue of the authority conferred on me by an Act of the Legislature of said State of Maine, entitled, ""An Act to aid in the construction of the European and North American Railway? ... in consideration of one dollar, paid by said Railway Company ... do hereby transfer and convey to said European and North American Railway Company, all the timber and lands belonging to said State, situated upon the waters of the Penobscot and Saint John Rivers, to be used by said company to aid in the construction of its contemplated line of railway ...? The specific lands transferred are then identified. The 114 mile line was completed in October 1871. A ceremony celebrating completion of the line was attended by U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant and Canadian Governor General Lord Lisgar at the boundary bridge crossing the St. Croix River. On November 9, 1872, the Eastern Division was consolidated, along with the Nova Scotia Railway, into the Intercolonial Railway also referred to as the Intercolonial Railway of Canada which operated from 1872-1918, when it became part of Canadian National Railways which still serves Canada today. Canadian National's slogan is ""North America's Railroad,? evocative of part of the company?s name on this deed, ?North American Railway.?"

        The Extermination of the American Bison

      Washington: Smithsonian Institution 1889, 1st Edition. () 548pp. Very good. Octavo. Original dark brown cloth boards, blind stamped. With gilt lettering on spine. Inscription on front free endpaper. Twenty-one black and white plates. One fold-out map. Hornaday was an American zoologist and taxidermist. He is cited with being a pioneer of early wildlife conservation in the USA. While working for the United States National Museum, he undertook a census of bison in America and came to the conclusion that the extermination of the bison was already inevitable. He mounted a buffalo for the mueum collection that stayed from 1886-1950, and later was restored again in 1996 and placed in the Museum of the Northern Great Plains in Fort Benton, Montana. His research had a lasting effect on him, and he later went on to become President of the Wild Life Protective Association, and to co-found (with Theodore Roosevelt) the American Bison Society. He helped with the passage of legislation that extended protection to all manner of species: birds, game, bison, and seals to name a few. This copy is inscribed from Hornaday to "Col. R.D. Dodge, with compliments and thanks of the author". Dodge was a well respected Colonel that held a long career in the United States Army from 1844-1891. He became linked to a distinguished military and political family in 1858 through marriage to Julia Rhinelander Paulding. Julia was the grandfather of General William Paulding, of the War of 1812 and a former Mayor of New York City. Jame Kirk Paulding, the author and Secretary of the Navy, was her great-uncle, and John Paulding, captor of British Spy John Andre, was a cousin of her grandfathers. This is a very nice copy with interesting associations and would make a great addition to any collection..

        BOUDOUSQUIE'S REFERENCE MAP OF MOBILE AND VICINITY.

      T. Fitzwilliam & Co., Lith.; Paul C. Boudousquie, C.E., Del., Mobile, Ala., New Orleans, LA 1889 - Matted, glazed, and framed. 50 x 30 cm. map, within a slightly larger border. Map is lightly creased from folding, printed in pale yellow and blue, showing Mobile Bay at the center, and the growing port of Mobile on its western bank. Legend in the upper right corner contains the title, and a promotional paragraph: "The magnificent system of water ways with the fully equipped railroads centering in Mobile, the only natural outlet for the vast agricultural and mineral products of the State of Alabama, entitles this section of the United States of America, to its geographical importance, acknowledged by the commercial world. As a Summer or Winter Resort, Mobile is unsurpassed; her soil is porous and the surrounding balsamic forests absorb readily the moisture from the Mediterranean of the New World. With religious and educational institutions unexcelled, her countless social attractions invite the attention of tourists, invalids and investors for whom this Map has been especially prepared, from all recent obtainable data, by Paul C. Boudousquie, C.E., Mobile, Ala." Railroads, projected railroads, County roads and drives, and points of historical interest are delineated, plus hotels, race courses, mills, etc. Verso of the map prints a few short paragraphs on "The Gulf City. The only Free Port in the Union and the only outlet for the Rivers of Alabama. Mobile, Mobile County, State of Alabama." extolling its extensive offering for commerce and culture. OCLC lists two copies [both are photocopies] at the Univ. of Alabama. One is smaller in size, dated 1872 & 1889; the other is similar in size to this copy, but is a modern reproduction, dated 1982. According to the collector from whom we purchased this item, the Mobile historian Caldwell Delaney, head of the Museum of the City of Mobile for 40 years and Howes US-iana author, called this the rarest of maps delineating Mobile.

        Facsimile-Atlas to the Early History of Cartography with reproductions of the most important maps printed in the XV and XVI centuries. Translated from the Swedish Original by Johan Adolf Ekelof and Clements R. Markham

      Stockholm: Norstedt, 1889. Large folio, 510 x 340 mm, with 170 maps on 51 plates, many of them double-page, and a further 84 illustrations in the text; neat library stamps of Forbes Library (Massachusetts); a very good copy in half red cloth over the original brown cloth boards. "Man's growing acquaintance with the form and disposition of the globe" Original edition of an extraordinary resource: this tremendous book was the first really systematic approach to the study of cartographic history. Altogether 169 of the most important maps printed before 1600 are reproduced here, including the complete contents of the 1490 edition of Ptolemy and finishing with the Flemish and Dutch cartographers of the Age of Discovery.It is an absolutely essential reference work. As Bernard Quaritch pointed out in 1899, offering this and the Periplus (see following item) for ten guineas, it brings together 'all the rare and remarkable maps which have recorded man's growing acquaintance with the form and disposition of the globe. It is a treasury of important maps, many of them so rare as to be practically inaccessible to most students of the subject; as no collector, and no museum however rich and old, could boast possession of all the originals...'.Nordenskiold was himself a great explorer; among other achievements, it was under his command that the Vega made the first complete crossing of the Northeast Passage.

        Götzen-Dämmerung (Twilight of the Idols)

      Leipzig: C.G. Naumann, 1889 TP + 3 leaves + [1] ?" 144, Octavo (Schaberg 56) FIRST EDITION.Gotzen-Dammerung includes some of Nietzsche?s most direct and scathing attacks on many decadent "idols" within the history of philosophy. In classic Nietzsche style, he probes the psychological landscapes of these "declining" types whose thinking originates in a place of weakness rather than strength. Many identify Gotzen-Dammerung as both a summary and introduction to Nietzsche?s overall philosophy.Nietzsche wrote The Twilight of the Idols (originally entitled "Mussiggang eines Psychologen" or "A Psychologist at Leisure") between the end of June and September, 1888, and sent the manuscript to Naumann in early September, with his final additions to the text being sent October 4th. Naumann finished printing the 1,000 copies by November 13th, shortly after which advance copies were sent out to Nietzsche and others. The book appeared in book stores on January 24th, for sale in wrappers for 2.25 marks and bound for 3.50 marks. Two weeks earlier the now-demented Nietzsche had been transported to a clinic in Basel, never to regain his sanity. (See Schaberg, pp. 166-169 for complete details.)Rebound in contemporary, marbled paper-over-boards, cloth spine, very light wear. Title and author hand-tooled in gilt along spine. Renewed endpapers.

        The butterflies of the Eastern United States and Canada, with special reference to New England.

      Cambridge, published by the author, 1889. 3 volumes. 4to (280 x 200mm). pp. xl, 1958, with 3 portraits, 3 (2 folded) coloured maps and 89 lithographed plates, of which 36 are partly or fully coloured. Contemporary red half morocco, gilt ornamented spines. Samuel Hubbard Scudder (1837-1911) is to be regarded as one of the greatest systematic entomologists so far produced in America and as the founder of insect paleontology. He was a leading specialist in the orders of Orthoptera and Lepidoptera and described many new species. His most famous work is the above offered publication, which is still a standard work on the subject. "The plates in Scudder's book were produced by chromolithography. Trouvelot and Poujade were the artists for the original paintings, but the stones were prepared by a skilful lithographer, Thomas Sinclair. Ten different stones had to be used to accommodate all the colours in this plate and great care was needed to align and print all the colours' (P. Gilbert. Butterfly Collectors and Painters p. 50). A beautifully bound copy. Perforated stamp at the lower margin of title-pages.//Nissen ZBI, 3792.

        Die Entwickelung von Ascaris megalocephala mit besonderer Rücksicht auf die Kernverhältnisse.

      . Jena, Verlag von Gustav Fischer, 1889, Folio, 48 pp., 6 Abb., 6 lithfarb. Tafeln mit je einer Seite Tafelerklärungen, feiner Halbleinenband mit marmorierten Deckelbezügen im Stil der Zeit; St.a.Tit.. Erste Ausgabe des Abdruck aus der Festschrift zum siebzigsten Geburtstag von Carl Kupffer! - Mit der Entdeckung der Keimbahn bei Ascaris traf Boveri zunächst auf ein seit mehreren Jahrzehnten diskutiertes Problem. Schon in den sechziger Jahren hatten Weismann, Metschnikoff und Leuckart in der Entwicklung des Insekteneies an dessen einem Pol die "Urgeschlechtszellen" vorgefunden und festgestellt, daß aus ihnen sämtliche Spermien oder Eier hervorgehen. Auf diese Beobachtungen hatten Weismann 1885 und andere Forscher die "Keimbahntheorie" gegründet. Sie besagt, daß das Keimzellenmaterial ganz allgemein vom Ei in ununterbrochener Linie durch die Entwicklung des Individuums hindurch bis zur Bildung der Geschlechtszellen führt und dabei vom Soma unabhängig bleibt. Diese Annahme hatte eine stammesgeschichtlich sehr wichtige Konsequenz, die vor allem von Weismann mit großer Schärfe herausgearbeitet wurde. Wenn die gleichsam ruhende Keimbahn und die somatischen, funktionierenden Organe so unabhängig voneinander bleiben, dann ist eine Vererbung somatisch erworbener Eigenschaften nicht denkbar. - Für diese Keimbahnlehre mußten Boveris Untersuchungen grundlegende Beweisstücke werden, denn vermöge der Diminution ließen sich bei Ascaris Keimbahn und somatische Entwicklung mit einer vorher nicht bekannten Klarheit Zelle für Zelle verfolgen. Insbesondere ist die große Untersuchung "Die Entwicklung von Ascaris megalocephala mit besonderer Rücksicht auf die Kernverhältnisse" von 1899 eine der hervorragendsten Arbeiten auf diesem Felde geblieben, von Boveri seinem ehemaligen Lehrer, dem Anatomen C. von Kupffer, gewidmet, unter dessen Leitung er einst seine Dissertation ausgeführt hatte. Es sind ihr mustergültige Abbildungen beigegeben, in denen sich Boveris ganze Liebe und Sorgfalt in morphologischen Dingen offenbart. - Der Diminutionsvorgang bei Ascaris stellte jedoch noch ein weiteres Problem, das im Kreuzungspunkt von Embryologie und Vererbungsforschung liegt: das Problem der erbungleichen Kernteilung und, in Zusammenhang damit, dasjenige der embryonalen Differenzierung. Jedes Ei entwickelt sich sehr rasch durch Zellteilungen zu einem vielzelligen Körper, dessen Zellen zunächst noch sehr ähnlichen Typus haben. Dann setzt die Differenzierung ein. Die einen Zellen entwickeln sich zu Muskelzellen, andere zu Darmzellen, noch andere zu Nervenzellen usw. Sie werden verschieden, sowohl im Bau ihres Plasmas als auch im Typus ihrer Kerne. - Sucht man nach den Ursachen dieser Differenzierung, so steht man vor einer paradoxen Situation. Die Vermehrung der Zellen, eine der Grundlagen der Embryonalentwicklung, ist an den Mechanismus der Kernteilung gebunden, und dieser Mechanismus sorgt dafür, daß alle Zellen den gleichen Chromosomenbestand - denjenigen des befruchteten Eies - beibehalten. Wie ist dann, da die Chromosomen Erbträger sind, eine Entwicklung zu verschiedenen Zelltypen möglich? Müssen nicht, damit die Zellen sich verschieden differenzieren können, zunächst die Erbfaktoren verschieden verteilt werden? - In der Tat hatte Weismann schon 1885 gefordert, daß sich die Kernsubstanz, d. h. die Chromosomen, gesetzmäßig während der Ontogenese verändert. Die einfachste Annahme wäre die, "daß sich bei jeder Kernteilung das spezifische Plasma des Kerns (d. h. die Chromosomen) in zwei ihrem Wesen nach ungleiche Hälften teilte, so daß dann auch der Zellkörper, dessen Charakter ja durch den Kern bestimmt wird, umgeprägt würde". Weismann erkannte an, daß die Beobachtungen Straßburgers und van Benedens für eine identische und nicht für eine ungleiche Chromosomenteilung sprachen. Doch habe Straßburger "wohl die Sicherheit der Beobachtung überschätzt", und gegenüber van Beneden dürfe man doch nicht vergessen, "daß das, was wir da sehen, nicht die Molekularstruktur des Kernplasmas ist". Aber auch die große Chromosomenarbeit Boveris von 1888 stand gegen Weismanns Hypothese. Das Differenzierungsproblem blieb also ungelöst. Hier setzte Boveris weitere Analyse ein. Die Diminution bei Ascaris konnte ein Kronzeuge für oder wider die autonome erbungleiche Teilung der Chromosomen werden und war auch schon von zur Strassen im Sinne Weismanns gedeutet worden. - Boveri dagegen suchte die Ursache für die Diminution im Protoplasma. Er hatte schon 1899 darauf hingewiesen, daß doppelt befruchtete Eier die Möglichkeit einer Entscheidung geben müßten, aber erst 1904 "eine Anzahl entscheidender Fälle zu Gesicht bekommen"." Baltzer, pp.148-152

        ENGLISH ODES

      [Printed by Charles Whittingham at the Chiswick Press for] Kegan Paul, Trench, & Co, London 1889 - 165 x 105 mm (6 1/2 x 4 1/8"). xxi, [i], 259 pp. VERY PRETTY TURQUOISE CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front doublure), covers with wide, swirling gilt frame featuring flowers and broad-leaf plants on a thick bed of stippling, raised bands, spine gilt in densely stippled compartments with tulip and acanthus leaves stamped in relief, INTRICATELY GILT MAROON MOROCCO DOUBLURES with large strapwork mandorla and curling azured leafy vines, maroon moiré silk endleaves, top edge gilt. With wood-engraved frontispiece with tissue guard. Spine slightly darkened, just a hint of wear to front joint, edges of leaves faintly browned, one leaf with light dampstain to fore margin, but all of these imperfections trivial, and otherwise a fine copy--clean and fresh internally, and in a glistening binding showing almost no signs of use. This is a fine piece of work by Riviere that is appropriately tooled in light of its contents, a collection of English odes selected by Edmund Gosse. Just as the works included here represent a traditional poetic form that finds its roots in the classical world, everything about the gilt embellishment on the binding suggests the archaic--from the acanthus leaves (so prevalent in the decoration of Medieval manuscripts) on the cover to the azured vegetation and strapwork panelling (so frequently seen in 16th century bindings) on the striking doublures. Although he never attended university, the English poet, author, and critic Sir Edmund William Gosse (1849-1928) began his career as assistant librarian at the British Museum. From 1884 to 1890, he lectured in English literature at Trinity College, Cambridge, and in the former year, his successful lecture tour in America earned him considerable fame. A collection of works by Spenser, Milton, Dryden, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, Keats, and others, "English Odes" was originally published in 1881, was met with approval, and was reprinted several times.
