        Carte-lettre autographe signée à la Comtesse Potocka : «Nous parlerons du grand voyage.»

      1889 - - S.l [Paris] s.d. [décembre 1880-juillet 1884], 11, 5x9,1 cm, 2 pages sur une carte-lettre. - Carte-lettre autographe signée de Maupassant à la Comtesse Potocka, 17 lignes à l'encre noire, à en-tête « GM 83 rue Dulong ». Maupassant est un auteur à succès à l'époque de cette lettre. Il est comblé d'invitations et de réceptions, lui qui prétend ne pas être mondain. Il tente d'accorder son emploi du temps avec celui de la Comtesse : « J'ai donné à choisir entre mardi et mercredi à des amis qui me demandaient mon jour et j'attends ma réponse demain. » Pour lui éviter la peine de lui répondre, il lui annonce : « Je tenterai de vous trouver après-demain ». Ils ont un projet à évoquer : « Nous parlerons du grand voyage. » Sans doute fait-il allusion au voyage qu'il entreprendra en 1885 en Italie avec ses amis Henri Gervex, peintre et Georges Legrand, journaliste.

        Untersuchungen über die Theorie des Preises.

      Leipzig: Duncker & Humblot,, 1889. Large octavo. Uncut and unopened in original brown hard-grain cloth, spine and boards lettered and ruled in black, patterned endpapers. Spine ends and corners bumped, extremities rubbed, boards marked and scuffed, faint dampstain to front board, tear to lower margin of pp. 65–8, a very good copy. First and scarce edition in book form of the eminent Viennese economists' important theoretical treatise, "the only Austrian contribution to mathematical economics and one of the outstanding contributions in the last two decades of the 19th century" (The New Palgrave III, p. 176). The first part was published separately in 1887. Auspitz and Lieben, cousins and brothers-in-law, were partners in the family bank, Auspitz, Lieben & Co, and successful businessmen. Auspitz founded and directed a sugar factory and was elected to parliament in 1873 where he fought against cartels; Lieben was the vice-president of the Austrian Credit Institute for Commerce and Trade. Largely unrecognised for its brilliance during their lifetime, this is their most significant work, described by Schumpeter as "one of the outstanding theoretical performances of the age" (p. 849).

        Canal de Nicaragua: a Letter Opener for the Exposition Universelle in Paris.

      1889 - Letter opener with lithograph map on recto, 1889 calendar printed on handle; map edges chipped. Dimensions: 35 by 340mm (1.25 by 13.25 inches). Produced by the Nicaraguan republic, on a "échantillon de bois" (wood sample). The recto with a printed map showing a proposed route for an Inter-Oceanic Nicaragua Canal. The proposed waterway would connect the Caribbean Sea, and therefore the Atlantic Ocean, with the Pacific Ocean through Nicaragua. Such a canal would follow rivers up to Lake Nicaragua and then cut across the isthmus of Rivas to reach the Pacific. Construction of a canal along the route using the San Juan River was proposed in the early colonial era, and Louis Napoleon wrote an article about its feasibility in the early nineteenth century. Plans by the United States to build such a canal were abandoned in the early twentieth century, after the purchase of the French interests in the Panama Canal at a reasonable cost. The canal idea was discussed seriously by businessmen and governments throughout the nineteenth century. The verso of the opener shows a pasted vignette with the Pavillon du Nicaragua at the Exposition, as well a stamp of the Republica.

        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

        Gawriliada von Puschkin) [The Gabrieliad. (A dream)].

      Simonides i Ko Tsargrad E. L. Kasprovich E.L. Kaprovich between and 1904 printed by G. Uschmann in Weimar 1889 - 16mo (12 x 8 cm). pp. 23, [1], printed on pink paper; two small closed tears to title. Modern black morocco backed marbled paper-covered boards, spine with six gilt rules, title in Russian in one panel, original printed green wrappers with grey printed label on the front cover bound in. Very rare edition of Pushkin's erotic poem, published in Germany with a fake imprint for clandestine circulation in Russia. Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin (1799-1837) is widely considered to be Russia's greatest national poet; even today, many Russians refer to him as '???? ???' [our everything]. He is known for works including Boris Godunov, Ruslan and Liudmila, The Bronze Horseman, and his novel in verse, Eugene Onegin, which was described by a contemporary critic as 'an encyclopaedia of Russian life,' and whose most famous (and eccentric) translation was completed by none other than Vladimir Nabokov. The poet was so greatly respected during his lifetime that Tsar Nicholas I served as his own personal censor. Ultimately, however, he was fatally wounded in a duel with his brother-in-law, Georges-Charles d'Anthès, a French officer who had attempted to seduce the poet's wife. The St Petersburg home in which Pushkin died is now on of Russia's most popular tourist destinations. However, the wholesome image of Pushkin as a national treasure and literary genius cut down in his prime is somewhat undermined by The Gabrieliad, which is both blasphemous and erotic, satirising the Annunciation, the Virgin Birth and the Fall of Adam and Eve. Bored and revolted by the pious hypocrisy of the Russian Orthodox Church, Pushkin wrote this satirical amalgam of several of the Church's most revered dogmas in April 1821. It tells the story of Mary, a beautiful young Jewess neglected by her older husband. The Lord sees Mary and falls in love, and sends the Archangel Gabriel to tell her this; but before either of them can take matters further, the Devil presents himself to Mary as a handsome man and seduces her. Gabriel eventually drives the Devil off in order to seduce Mary himself. Once Gabriel has left, God pays Mary a visit of his own, disguised as a white dove. The debauchery continues. Much too scandalous to be published at the time, the text instead circulated anonymously in manuscript form. It came to the attention of the authorities only in 1828, at which point an inquiry was opened and Pushkin was brought in for questioning. He initially denied his authorship, but as the work was known to be his, the poet was obliged to write a letter to the Tsar Nicholas I confessing and expressing contrition in order to avoid exile. The poem was first published in a collection of Russian poetry in London in 1861. Many editions were subsequently smuggled back into Russia, where they circulated illegally. Meanwhile a (heavily censored) version of the text in Russian appeared only in 1907. The poem was finally published there in full in 1917. Outside Russia we could find copies of this edition only at the New York Public Library, Temple University Philadelphia, Harvard University Library and BULAC Paris.

        The Last Voyage. [to India and Australia, in the 'Sunbeam.', on half-title].

      London, Longmans, Green, and Co., New York, 18 East 16th Street, 1889. 8vo. Original dark blue cloth with bevelled boards, lettered and ruled in gilt, top edge gilt; pp. xxiv, 490; lithographic frontispiece and title, 18 full-page lithographed plates, numerous wood-engraved illustrations by Edward Whymper and others, tinted lithogrphic headpieces in the text, 1 folding coloured map of the author's route and 1 folding coloured map of India; a near fine copy. Posthumously published first edition in the original solemn commemorative binding. The final voyage of Lady Brassey and the Sunbeam, undertaken for the sake of her health. She died and was buried at sea on 14th September 1887. The present work was compiled from her journals by M.A. Broome and covers her journey from India to Labuan, Brunei, Borneo and the Celebes, on to Australia (which the Sunbeam circumnavigated) and then home following her death off the north-west coast of Australia. The first 200 pages cover India with Sri Lanka and the onward journey to the Phillipines. The following (roughly) 200 are on Australia, which the Sunbeam circumnavigated. This makes this work a major Australianum. 'The cruises of the Sunbeam may have resembled family picnics rather than voyages of discovery, but Annie Brassey, who inspired and organized them, is not to be denied the status of a true traveller. A poor sailor, never really well at sea, she dared all it could do to her, in order that she might visit the farthest corners of the earth. As her husband wrote, "the voyage would not have been undertaken and assuredly it would never have been completed without the impulse derived from her perseverance and determination" [Brassey, A voyage in the Sunbeam preface]' (ODNB).

        SECTIONAL MAP OF COLFAX AND MORA COUNTIES, NEW MEXICO

      Denver: Edward Rollandet, 1889., 1889. First edition. First edition. 28 3/4" x 39 1/4" colored lithographic map, printed on banknote paper. An attractive and finely-executed map of Colfax and Mora counties, in northeastern New Mexico. The famed and controversial Maxwell Land Grant is tinted brown, the counties are outlined in color, and the map extends slightly into southern Colorado (as far as the Maxwell Grant stretched). The map shows proposed and built railroad lines, wagon roads and trails, and also gives an early representation of telephone lines in this portion of New Mexico. Rivers, mountains, mines, and the location of the Maxwell beef pasture are also shown, as are dozens of towns, the U.S. Land Office at Folsom, and Fort Union. Edward Rollandet, who drew this map, was born in 1852 in Holland and served four years in the Dutch army. He came to the United States in 1873, eventually coming west and working for the Maxwell Land Company for two years. After that Rollandet moved to Colorado and went into business, eventually becoming chief draughtsman in the Surveyor General's office. Not in Phillips, MAPS, though Stephenson does locate a copy in his checklist of land ownership maps in the Library of Congress. Minor edgewear else a fine copy.

        On the Electromotive Changes connected with the Beat of the Mammalian Heart, and of the Human Heart in particular (pp.16-194, 9 Fig.).

      Phil. Trans. B., 180 (1889). - London, Harrison & and Sons, 1890, 4, XI, (1), 357 pp., 39 Taf., Kalbsledereinband der Zeit feines Exemplar. First Edition! Augustus Desire Waller (1856-1922) "was the first to learn that the electric potential of the heart could be recorded from the surface of the intact body in 1887 he obtained the first electrocardiogram or record of the potential variations from the human heart (Fig. 59). He also obtained electrocardiograms from excised hearts of laboratory animals in an attempt to learn the differences between tracings obtained with electrodes placed on the surface of the body and those obtained with electrodes placed directly upon the heart. Waller made many observations on man as well as on animals. As a result of his studies, in 1887 he was able to predict, for the first time, the reversal of the electrocardiographic pattern in dextrocardia with situs inversus (Fig. 61). He was also one of the first to conceive of the single dipole to explain the heart's electric field. Although he did not use the term "dipole," it is obvious that he understood the meaning and, to some extent, the significance of the dipole concept. Waller was not impressed with the diagnostic possibilities of the capillary electrometer. It was Willem Einthoven who saw differences between normal subjects and people with heart disease in the relatively crude records obtained with this instrument, and it was he who realized the need to record cardiac action potentials with greater accuracy. Between 1893 and 1896, George J. Burch and Willem Einthoven advanced the mathematical theory of the electrocardiogram and devised methods of calibrating and correcting records obtained."

        SECTIONAL MAP OF COLFAX AND MORA COUNTIES, NEW MEXICO

      Edward Rollandet, 1889., Denver - First edition. 28 3/4" x 39 1/4" colored lithographic map, printed on banknote paper. An attractive and finely-executed map of Colfax and Mora counties, in northeastern New Mexico. The famed and controversial Maxwell Land Grant is tinted brown, the counties are outlined in color, and the map extends slightly into southern Colorado (as far as the Maxwell Grant stretched). The map shows proposed and built railroad lines, wagon roads and trails, and also gives an early representation of telephone lines in this portion of New Mexico. Rivers, mountains, mines, and the location of the Maxwell beef pasture are also shown, as are dozens of towns, the U.S. Land Office at Folsom, and Fort Union. Edward Rollandet, who drew this map, was born in 1852 in Holland and served four years in the Dutch army. He came to the United States in 1873, eventually coming west and working for the Maxwell Land Company for two years. After that Rollandet moved to Colorado and went into business, eventually becoming chief draughtsman in the Surveyor General's office. Not in Phillips, MAPS, though Stephenson does locate a copy in his checklist of land ownership maps in the Library of Congress. Minor edgewear else a fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Our Friends in The Hunting Field

      F. V. White & Co, The Strand - London - UK 1889 - Hand-Signed to paste-in on the page opposite the full title page. 'Mary E. Kennard' - Scarce autograph of the woman described as 'Harborough's forgotten novelist' (J. D. Bennett, in 'The Harborough Historian', 2001) - Mary Eliza Kennard (1850¿1936) was an English novelist and writer of non-fiction. Most of her work was published under the name of: Mrs Edward Kennard. - Kennard specialised in stories of the English Country House, world of hunting, shooting and fishing, and in her heyday was dubbed: "the Diana of fiction", in honour of Diana, the Roman goddess of hunting. - FIRST EDITION & FIRST PRINTING - The book contains 14 short stories. - Condition of the book: Green cloth with black and red illustration of a man on a horse, who is fox hunting. The image is faded in parts but still a very obvious illustration. On the spine, the title of the book is at the top in gold gilt, and although you can still read it, it has faded with time. In the middle of the spine, there is an outline of the riding crop and a bugle, and the author's name runs through this illustration. At the bottom of the spine is the publishers name. On the reverse of the book [rear panel], is a decorative symbol of the publishers initials. The cloth is frayed around the extremities, and mainly so to the corners and top and bottom of the spine. There is also a fair amount of soiling. There is also a small tape repair to the top front of the spine. I'm sure this could be repaired in a more professional way. Overall, it's a fair condition for a book that is 128 years old. There are decorative end pages front and rear, all present, although fairly browned. As stated above, the signature of 'Mary E. Kennard', is pasted on to the blank endpage opposite the full title page. It is on similar aged paper as the book is published on, so I presume it has been here for over one hundred years. The page block is tightly bound and there are no loose pages. The fourteen stories command 226 pages and there are numerous pages to the rear given to advertising. At the end of the 226 pages there is a list of F.V. White & Co's other publications and this is dated January, 1889. The list of other publications covers a further 16 pages. There isn't any soiling to the pages, there's more of a hue to the page edges, which is age related. Overall, a very good condition. - Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days.

Spine and covers lightly worn, with small chip from bottom end of spine. Previous owner's name in pencil at head of title page. In custom brown cloth clamshell box.The second edition of this work of baseball anecdotes and autobiography by Mike "King" Kelly (1857-1894), the first memoir by a baseball player. Kelly, at the time of this publication was a member of the Boston Beaneaters and was an early innovator of the game, introducing or popularizing such techniques as the hook slide, the hit and run, and the art of intentionally fouling balls to build up the pitch count. Handsome, personable, and extremely popular with fans, Kelly parlayed his success on the field into a second career as a vaudeville performer. His act included recitations of the poem "Casey at the Bat." In 1945 Kelly was inducted into the Baseball Hall Fame in only its second voting.A first edition of *Play Ball* was published in 1888 by Emery & Hughes. Both editions are rare, with *OCLC* locating only one copy of this edition. *Grobani* 27-1 (for the 1888 edition, the earliest work listed under "Anecdotes and Recollections"); *Smith* 14906 (erroneously listing an 1883 edition); *OCLC* (1 copy, New York Public Library).
