        Autograph Letter Signed, on University of Pennsylvania letterhead, but penned from London, March 9, 1889.

      - At the time of this letter, Muybridge had completed his most important work on the study of animal locomotion largely under the auspices of the Univ. of Pennsylvania. He was a sought out lecturer in the US and Great Britain. This letter is a likely reference to an upcoming lecture in England at the Royal Academy of Arts (possibly March 12 and 13) or South Kensington Museum in mid to late March. In full, "The proof is all right-so far as it relates to myself, will you kindly send me 24 admission tickets. Faithfully, Eadweard Muybridge." Signed with his usual flourish.

        Address in Surgery

      Stillwell & Co., Melbourne 1889 - Octavo, 23 pp., some foxing, old fold, and manuscript postal address and postmarks (1889), where the pamphlet has been mailed from South Australia to New South Wales; in the original printed wrappers, rather spotted and worn, ?ink stain to head of front wrapper. Unusual offprint, rare. This lecture by Stirling is printed from the Intercolonial Medical Congress of Australasia Transactions, from their second session in Melbourne, January 1889. Although not in pristine condition, this is a particularly rare pamphlet, not listed in Ferguson. The pamphlet prints an "Address in Surgery" by Edward C. Stirling, Surgeon to the Adelaide Hospital and lecturer at the University of Adelaide. Stirling was born in 1848 at Strathalbyn, South Australia. Educated at Cambridge, and sometime lecturer at St George's Hospital, London, he returned to South Australia in 1875. He had a long and varied career, which included a stint as the member for North Adelaide, a crossing of the continent from south to north with the Earl of Kintore in 1891, and work as the medical officer and anthropologist with the important William Horn expedition in 1894. A long note in the Australian Dictionary of Biography shows the breadth of his interests: he was actively associated with the Public Library, the Art Gallery, the Zoological Society, the Adelaide Hospital and the State Children's Council, dean of the Faculty of Medicine in 1908-19 and president of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in South Australia. He participated in the long struggle to secure Flinders Chase on Kangaroo Island as a sanctuary. In 1917 Stirling was knighted; he died two years later. Attractively, the work was considered of such interest that one "J. von Düring" has sent the pamphlet through the Australian posts to "E. Chisholm" M.D., of Victoria Street in Ashfield, New South Wales. Hence the old fold running lengthwise along the book, as well as the address details and various postmarks to the back wrapper: two are sadly illegible, but the third is still clear: "Southern Railway S.A. Au 22 89". Although various copies of the Transactions proper are held, this offprint is not in Ferguson, and not known to have been acquired by any Australian institutions since. Interestingly, several other offprints from the same Melbourne congress of 1889, and also printed by Stillwell, are known: Jamieson, On want of proportion in the signs and symptoms of diseases of the heart and great vessels; Marano, On pneumatic therapeutics by means of the portable apparatus; Grant, A Case of Raynaud's Disease.

Robert Smith Surtees (1805- 1864) was an English editor, novelist and sporting writer. He left for London in 1825, intending to practise law in the capital, but had difficulty making his way and began contributing to the Sporting Magazine. He launched out on his own with the New Sporting Magazine in 1831, contributing the comic papers which appeared as Jorrocks' Jaunts and Jollities in 1838. Jorrocks, the sporting cockney grocer, with his vulgarity and good-natured artfulness, was a great success with the public, and Surtees produced more Jorrocks novels in the same vein, notably Handley Cross and Hillingdon Hall. Most of Surtees's later novels, were illustrated by John Leech (1817 - 1864) an English caricaturist and illustrator. They included Mr Sponge's Sporting Tour; Ask Mamma; Plain or Ringlets and Mr Facey Romford's Hounds. Previous owner's ink inscription dated 1889 to verso of front free endpaper.

        Der Natürliche Werth.

      Wien, Alfred Hölder, 1889. 8vo. Uncut in the original printed yellow wrappers. Light soiling and a few minor nicks to extremities. A very fine and clean copy. XVI, 239 pp.. First edition, rarely seen in the original wrappers, of this important work in which Wieser attempts to apply marginal utility analysis to the determination of cost, thus for the first time fully develops a theory of value. The work "rank high as an original achievement" and is one of the very earliest to realize the information value of prizes."It was only with Friedrich von Wieser's book [the present] that an attempt was made to fill the lacuna left by Menger and Böhm-Bawerk. Wieser makes it clear that without a solution to the problem of 'imputation' the new theory would remain incomplete and would be subjected to the widespread criticism that it cannot deal with production. The problem is posed as follows" 'The statement that the productive goods receive their value from the value of their produce suffices only to evaluate [schätzen] the collaborating factors of production as a whole, but not separately. In order to be able to do also this, a rule is needed which allows one to apportion the total produce in detail.'(Wieser, 1889)." (Steedman, Socialism & Marginalism in Economics 1870 - 1930). "Here he continued to work on the same problems and also on what he regarded merely as a first step toward a theory of value that was to be fully developed in [the present work]. He employed the expository device of studying value in a centrally directed economy and suggested possible applications of utility theory to public finance. The book gained him almost immediate acclaim, and it was soon translated into English" (Frederich von Hayek in IESS)."[in the present work he] worked out the Austrian theories of cost and distribution (he coined the phrase 'Zurechnung', imputation), which Menger had not more than sketched, and this work must in spite of the latter fact and also in spite of glaring faults of technique, rank high as an original achievement. (Schumpeter, History of Economic Analysis)"In this work he applied the marginal utility theory not only horizontally, i.e. to trading and exchange, but also vertically, i.e. to production processes. He defined the value of higher goods produced alongside them, thus developing his imputation theory. Wieser, who possessed a certain "obsession with compulsive computability" is recognized as one of the first economist to realize the information value of prices." (Schulak, the Austrian School of Economics). Masui p. 909Menger col. 395
