        In Darkest Africa or, The Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin, Governor of Equatoria.

      London: London Sampson Low Marston Searle and Rivington Limited 1890 - 2 volumes, octavo (219 x 136 mm). Frontispiece and coloured folding map to each, folding map and coloured profile sketch to Volume II, 36 other plates in all, numerous illustrations to text. Original dark red pictorial cloth, decoration in grey, black and gilt, map endpapers in white and green. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To Mr W. Symons, with the special compliments of the author Henry M. Stanley, Jun 28th 1890, London" on the front free endpaper. Stanley's famous account of his 1886-9 expedition to relieve Emin Pasha, the governor of Equatoria who was supposedly besieged by Mahdist forces. Stanley's dealings with Pasha (who proved resistant to being "rescued"), his abandonment of his own rear column and his wider motives for his mission have all come under suspicion then and since, but the book remains a classic of African exploration. It contains some of his most celebrated writing, especially his account of the tortuous 450-mile passage through the dense Ituri rain forest. In the course of the journey Stanley met Roger Casement, then in service on the Congo, discovered the great snow-capped range of Ruwenzori, the Mountains of the Moon, a new lake which he named the Albert Edward Nyanza and a large south-western extension of Lake Victoria. Translations of In Darkest Africa appeared quickly in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch while sales of the English trade editions reached 150,000 copies. Howgego IV S60.

        Architectural Drawings.

      Moscow early s 1890 - Portfolio of four original architectural designs, pen and black ink, watercolour, traces of graphite, each with ruled border and captioned in Cyrillic, on thick gilt-edged paper, each sheet c.34 x 48 cm, gilt edges, some recent manuscript notes inserted; light marginal soiling. Kept loose in contemporary yellow paper-covered portfolio lined with moiré silk by F. Nieckels, Moscow; worn with some staining. Rare collection of original architectural designs for a charity housing project in Moscow; from the Coburg Bibliothek collection. In the 1820s the land between the Meshchanskaya Street (In 1957 renamed into Prospekt Mira) and Protopopovskiy pereulok was purchased by the successful merchants Vasiliy and Fedor Nabilkovy, who subsequently donated it to the Moscow Trustee Society for Helping the Poor. In the 1830s – 1840s with the funds provided by the Nabilkovy brothers and other donors, the Society managed to build here a large almshouse along with a hospital and home church. Buildings in the quarter were rapidly multiplying as well as the number of charities involved in the project. These drawings show the site in the 1890s, at the beginning of the second wave of expansion ensured by the active participation of the Brotherly Society for Providing Apartments (???????????? ???????? ????????? ? ?????? ???????? ??????????). This charity was established in 1861 by Princess N.V. Trubetskaya to build cheap housing for the poor in different parts of Moscow. The general plan of the site shows that the Brotherly Society was planning to construct twelve wooden buildings in addition to the already existing two. One of the drawings shows a facade and interior of the public housing constructed by the charity earlier that had a capacity to house 30 – 40 people. The two other drawings are the proposed designs for a public building to serve as a school or hospital, and a shed with a cellar. It is known that most of the buildings commissioned by the Brotherly Society were designed by Ivan Mashkov in 1899 – 1903. The offered drawings are signed by an architect A.A. Vetlitskiy [?.? ?????????], which could possibly mean that the designs for wooden buildings were eventually turned down in favour of the Mashkov's brick constructions. In the 1920s the complex in the Protopopovskiy Lane was gradually closed down; some of the houses were rebuilt to house various governmental organisations and still survive today. The portfolio likely came to Veste Coburg with Grand Duchess Maria Aleksandrovna (1853-1920), eldest daughter of Tsar Alexander II, who married Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh. She moved to Coburg with her husband after he inherited the duchy of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha from his uncle in 1893. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Referat über die durch das moderne chirurgische Experiment gewonnen positive Resultate, betreffend die Naht und den Ersatz von Defecten (pp.101-111 pp.316-382, Taf.3: 20 Ab.).

      Verh. Dtsch. Ges. Chir., 19. - Berlin, Verlag August Hirschwald, 1890, 8, XXX, (1), 139, (2), 626 pp., zahlr. Holzschnitte u. 7 lith. Taf., Erstdruck des Referats vom 11. April 1890 und der Diskussion vom 12. April. 1890 gehalten auf dem 19. Congress der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Chirurgie!Themistocles Gluck dürfte wohl der Erste gewesen sein, der den künstlichen Gelenkersatz für Schulter-, Ellbogen- und Handgelenk, Hüft-, Knie- und Fussgelenk propagierte, der die Zementifikation dieser Prothesen konzipierte, Ideen die erst weit über ein halbes Jahrhundert später Eingang in das Bewußtsein der Medizin, bei Ärzten wie Laien, fanden. Heute sind diese Themistocles GLUCK zuzuschreibenden Erfindungen orthopädisches emeingut geworden. - cf.D.Wessinghage, Th.Gluck, p.17."Total joint replacement, one of the most successful operations of modern times, is generally considered a development of the twentieth century. Yet the first total joint replacement was performed in Berlin in 1890. The tuberculous knee joint of a 17 year old woman was replaced by a hinged ivory prosthesis. The surgeon was Themistocles Gluck, whose pioneering work was dismissed during his lifetime and remains largely unrecognised to this day. The early days Gluck's early experimental work concerned organ resection and transplantation. His thesis was entitled "On the extirpation of organs" and his main hypothesis was that after the loss of one of a paired organ the remaining organ would take over the total function. Tendons and nerves were harvested from cadavers, disinfected, and transplanted into recipient animal donors. Gluck saw no ethical dilemma in transplantation and speculated on the size of a tissue transplant that could be tolerated by humans. After experimenting with autologous transplantation and heterologous transplants in animals he began to work with foreign materials. He successfully bridged tendon, muscle, and bone defects by interposing silk and catgut suture bundles, which encouraged fibrous tissue formation, a process he called "autoplastic.During the Serbian-Bulgarian war (1885-6) Gluck fixed the ends of a fractured femur with two steel plates secured to the bone with screws. He was amazed at how early the injured limb could resume movement. Around this time he replaced a portion of a mandible resected for cancer with a steel plate fixed to the bone with screws, with an excellent result. Pioneer of joint replacement - Much of Gluck's early work was an attempt to develop "guide rails" for tissue regeneration. He then went one step further and tried to provide definitive tissue replacements, in particular for bone and joint defects. Various materials were used in animal trials, including aluminium, wood, glass, and nickel plated steel, but he opted for ivory as the most important material-a decision that was perhaps influenced by the fact that the Ivory Coast was then a German colony. After using ivory cylinders to bridge bone defects in animals he impacted ivory cylinders into the medullary canal in patients with fractured long bones. Not only was bone continuity restored but secure fixation was also achieved. These ivory cylinders were a forerunner of the Küntscher nail. The fixation was later supplemented by small ivory pegs driven into horizontal drill holes. A connection that allowed movement at the level of the implant was a further improvement. Gluck rapidly developed models for the total replacement of shoulder, elbow, hand, and knee joints. Gluck also considered the fixation of the prosthesis to the skeleton. He was the first surgeon to use bone cement and he experimented with a variety of substances, including copper amalgam, plaster of Paris, and stone putty (rosin with pumice stone or gypsum), which hardened rapidly after mixing. He thus predated the work of Sir John Chamley by 65 years. The implants could be well fixed with cement, but he favoured osseointegration: the stability of the implant guaranteed by bone ingrowth alone. "Cement or cementless" continues to be a controversial issue. Gluck realised that his implants needed to be biomechanically sound: "We must aim for smaller volume and lower weight, together with strength and the most efficient shape, basing our efforts on the structural principles of the human skeleton." He emphasised the need for ease of application and atraumatic surgery: "The devices must be easy to insert through small wounds. Even if the device is technically complicated, ingeniously made and movable in different directions, it must not give rise to operative difficulty." The first ivory knee replacement on 20 May 1890 was followed by a total wrist replacement in another patient three weeks later. All the joint arthroplasties were remarkably successful in the short term. Later in 1890 Gluck presented a further case of a total knee replacement to the Berlin Medical Society: at only 35 days after operation the patient was pain free with active knee flexion and extension."

        "Seamans Folly": Family Photograph Album of the Seaman Drake Mansion, northern Manhattan

      Manhattan, 1890. Hardcover. Very good + condition. Scarce large silver print photographs of the vanished Seaman Drake estate in northern Manhattan, featuring many of the exterior and interior of the imposing white marble mansion, its outbuildings and the rolling farmland surrounding it. The album belonged to a descendant of Ann Drake Seaman's nephew Lawrence, who inherited the estate from his aunt in 1878. One of the photographs is captioned "Uncle Lawrence Drake and Mr. Welser", and shows the two men standing together at the front lawn of the mansion. A postage label laid down at the front paste down notes, "Kingsbridge House, NYC. Built by Anne Drake-Seaman after honeymoon in Europe. Anne daughter of Thomas and Susannah Morgan Drake". Above this label, in white pencil, "Kings Bridge NYC, overlooking Spyten Divel (sic) Creek". The album consists of 12 full page prints of the 25 acre estate built in 1855 by John T. Seaman, beginning with the amazing scale model of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris at the foot of the hill on which the mansion sits, and which still exists today at 5065 Broadway at West 216th Street . It was built from Inwood marble quarried nearby and earned the estate the nickname "Seamans Folly". The imposing iron gates are closed, and the two niches for statues are empty in this image. The next images consist of two lovely views of the tree lined drive winding up the hill toward the mansion, looking back toward the arch. The following is the front facade of the imposing mansion, covered in ivy and flanked by statues, and with the original dome topped tower. The image of "Uncle Lawrence and Mr. Wesler" follows; then a view labeled "Back Terrace" with a view of the house from a flight of statue topped marble steps. Interior shots include a large parlor with grand piano, ornately furnished with heavy gilt moldings at doors and windows, heavy drapes, paintings and many statues throughout and the "Octagon Library" with heavy ornamental pediments over the doors. Another sweeping view is from the front terrace across to Spuyten Duyvil Creek with row boats floating on the water. The remaining images include the imposing marble stable with its central wing flanked by extensions with enormous arched wood doors; the farm house, a modest white washed building with the farmer, his wife and three small children posed in front; and a final wide view of the farm landscape with the note "old Farm House 1700?" written above an old building. Around 1895 the Seaman Drake mansion had become the headquarters of the Suburban Riding and Driving Club, of which Lawrence Drake was a member. By 1906 Thomas Dwyer, a builder who constructed part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art became owner. Dwyer eventually sold off much of the property, finally selling the mansion in 1938 to a developer who, surprise, surprise, razed it to build apartments on the site. The prints are extremely bright and in excellent condition overall (there is some spotting on the first image.) There are identifying notations on the top right corner of a handful of images. Housed in a black cloth album with "Photographs" in gilt at the front board. String tied with a red cord; a label for the Gibson Adjustable Album laid down at the rear paste down. The album 14 x 10"; images measure 9 3/4 x 7 1/2". A unique record of a mid 19th century Manhattan estate whose only remnant is the marble arch at 216th street, now unfortunately serving as the entrance to an auto body shop.

Following the Mahdist uprising (which had led to the death of Gordon in 1885), Emin Pasha, the governor of Equatorial Sudan, had fled Sudan for Wadelai, close to Lake Albert, where he was trapped. However, he had been able to send letters back to Europe to alert friends to his plight, and these letters had provoked great concern for Emin's safety and an expedition was proposed by William Mackinnon, the Chairman of the British India Steam Navigation Company, which Stanley was asked to lead. In 1887, Stanley arrived at Zanzibar and then travelled around the Cape to the mouth of the Congo, from where he made his way to Leopoldville and thence to along the Congo into the centre of the continent, to the river's confluence with the Aruwimi River. From there Stanley journeyed to the village of Yambuya, which he reached on 15 June 1887, and, leaving a rearguard party at Yambuya, Stanley and an advance party of some 400 embarked upon a 450-mile, five-month-long journey through the Ituri rain forest to Lake Albert. 'Stanley's descriptions of the tortuous passage through the dense forest rank among the most celebrated of all his writings. Ravaged by the effects of disease, hunger, and warfare, his party reached Lake Albert in December 1887. Failing to find Emin (who was at Wadelai), they retreated to Ibwiri, where a camp (known as Fort Bodo) was constructed. On 29 April 1888 Stanley himself finally met Emin Pasha, drinking champagne with him on the shores of Lake Albert, as he had with Livingstone at Ujiji in 1871. Unable to persuade Emin to leave immediately, he decided to return to find his rear column, leaving Jephson with Emin. In August 1888, at Banalya, just 90 miles from Yambuya, he found the rear column in a state of disarray [...] The rear column began the arduous journey on to Fort Bodo in August 1888, suffering further casualties on the way. On his arrival, in December 1888, Stanley learned that Emin had suffered the combined threat of a mutiny within his forces and renewed hostilities with the Mahdists. Emin's position appeared to be under threat, though he himself privately described Stanley's motives as "egoism under the guise of philanthropy" [...] After much cajoling, Stanley at last persuaded him to leave Equatoria, the party setting out from the shores of Lake Albert on 10 April 1889. They travelled near the Ruwenzori range [...] then through the lakes region, reaching the coast on 4 December 1889. By now, Stanley's relationship with Emin was at a low ebb, and he left Bagamoyo for Zanzibar without his prize. From there Stanley travelled to Cairo, where he spent two months writing his famous account of the expedition, In Darkest Africa' (ODNB). On his return to London in April 1890, Stanley was feted by society and academia, and a reception held for him by the Royal Geographical Society at the Albert Hall on 5 May 1890, was attended by 10,000 people, including the prince of Wales.

        Original Sketchbook of Jewellery Design.

      [c.1890?] 279 largely hand-coloured designs on tissue paper or card, tipped in to a square-ruled note book. Orig. black cloth. Stationery label of L.& D. Grebel, Paris.A wonderful collection of jewellery designs, probably French. The highly detailed designs, largely in colour, are of ornamental combs, bachelor buttons and possibly brooches. The sketches for the decorative heads of combs are elegantly uncomplicated often with a floral design or with the addition of a dove or dragon. The other, largely circular designs, are distinctive in style with the continual inclusion of animals, cherubs, floral patterns, and musical instruments. The more unusual sketches have an air of the fairytale about them; cherubs riding dragonflies, doves, snails and cats; violin-playing crickets and cello-playing mice.

      Hamburg, J. C. H. Eckert & Sohn Nachf. Muschel- und Perlmutterwaren-Fabrik Naturalienhandlung, ca. 1890. Folio (34.0 x 27.4 cm). [i] p.; 19 lithographed plates, of which six printed in full colour. Original pictorial wrappers, with additional printed address label, mounted [AND] 4 pp.; nine photographic plates, Printed wrappers [AND] 8 pp. Printed wrappers.= An unusually finely illustrated catalogue of a shell dealer in Hamburg. The author, Heinrich Platow, apparently took over the business of J. C. H. Eckert and Sohn. Separately from the illustrated stock list, he produced two printed price lists, with pictorial front covers. The first contains an additional nine photographic plates with various shell Schmuck including boxes, ashtrays, and souvenirs, as well as carved, painted and unaltered shells, and bags with assorted shells, listing 500 items in all. A second, similar price list, contains 317 items. This list seems to be a bit younger, but both are not dated. They do, however, contain a telephone number, while the main catalogue does not. This dates them around 1885-1890. Little is known about Heinrich Platow, except that in the 1870s he was known as a dealer of naturalia, with a ‘travelling museum', touring places like Braunschweig, Bochum, Breslau and Solingen. Apparently he later settled in Hamburg. Small label of a former owner in the lower outer corner of the front wrapper verso. Wrapper edges a bit frayed and with a few small chips; one price list with punch holes, otherwise a very good set. Very rare. Not in any bibliography.

        Manuscrit autographe complet signé de Paul Verlaine d'une des "Chroniques de l'hôpital" : le lieu de misère partagée du poète et de l'ouvrier

      1890 - - Paris [1890], 21,3x14cm, 3 pages in-8 au versos de 4 feuillets de l'Assistance publique de Paris. - Manuscrit autographe complet signé de Paul Verlaine d'une des Chroniques de l'hôpital, 90 lignes serrées à l'encre noire, au verso de feuillets de l'Assistance publique de Paris. Chronique de l'une des hospitalisations de Paul Verlaine, se produisant entre septembre 1889 et février 1890. La mention « III » a été rayée au crayon bleu de typographe. Dans leur recueil définitif, le texte se trouve en effet en seconde position. Dans la version publiée par Le Chat noir, le 5 juillet 1890, on ne constate pas de variante avec notre manuscrit. Il s'agit donc du dernier état du texte remis à l'imprimeur. Jacques Borel situe la rédaction de cette chronique lors d'un passage à l'hôpital Cochin en juin 1890. Verlaine a passé de longs jours hospitalisés au cours de sa vie et plus particulièrement à cette époque. Durant ces séjours, il compose les Chroniques de l'Hôpital, des poèmes en prose en huit parties. Il y mêle l'anecdote, les observations de la vie des malades ainsi qu'une fine analyse poétique du milieu hospitalier. Verlaine débute par un constat troublant et désabusé : « Décidément, tout de même, il noircit l'Hôpital, en dépit du beau mois de juin [.] Oui, l'Hôpital se fait noir malgré philosophie, insouciance et fierté. » Malgré le beau temps, la rigidité du système, la misère et la maladie assombrissent la vision du poète : « réprimons toutes objections sous peine d'expulsions toujours dures, même en ce mois des fleurs et du foin, des jours réchauffants et des nuits clémentes, pour peu que l'on loge le diable dans sa bourse et la dette et la faim à la maison. » La sortie, par expulsion ou pour guérison et la vie à l'extérieur n'offrent pas plus de réconfort que le séjour : « Évidemment nous sortirons tôt ou tard, plus ou moins guéris, plus ou moins joyeux, plus ou moins sûrs de l'avenir, à moins que plus ou moins vivants. Alors nous penserons avec mélancolie [.] à nos souffrances morales et autres, aux médecins inhumains ou bons ». Un sentiment déjà éprouvé lors de ce qu'il appelle « mes ?entractes?», temps où il n'est pas hospitalisé. Car à la sortie de l'hôpital, c'est une vie de misère qui l'attend, malgré sa reconnaissance déjà acquise. Sa misère, Verlaine la met en parallèle de celle de la classe ouvrière qui partage ses séjours dans des hôpitaux. Le poète appelle à la résignation ses : « frères, artisans de l'une et de l'autre sorte, ouvriers sans ouvrage et poètes. avec éditeurs, résignons-nous, buvons notre peu sucrée tisane ou ce coco, avalons bravement qui son médicament, qui son lavement, qui sa chique! Suivons bien les prescriptions, obéissons aux injonctions, que douces nous semblent les injections et suaves les déjections, et réprimons toutes objections [.] ». Avec eux, le poète souhaite profiter de la beauté du mois de juin en reprenant deux vers de la Chanson sentimentale de Xavier Privas : « ?Nous nous plairions au grand soleil. Et sous les rameaux verts des chênes?, nous, les poètes, aussi bien qu'eux, les ouvriers, nos compagnons de misère [.]». Égaux devant le malheur, qu'ils soient actifs ou oisifs, pourraient-ils ressentir de la nostalgie une fois dehors: « Et peut-être un jour regretterons-nous ce bon temps où vous travailleurs, vous vous reposiez, où nous, les poètes, nous travaillions, où toi l'artiste, tu gagnais ton banyuls et tes tods [.] » ? Malgré cette rêverie, Verlaine est : « las de tant de pauvreté (provisoirement, croyez-le, car si habitué, moi, depuis cinq ans !) » et il conclut, amer par le constat d'une médecine moderne sans humanité : « l'Hôpital avec un grand H, l'idée atroce, évocatrice d'une indicible infortune, de l'Hôpital moderne pour le poète moderne, qui ne peut, à ses heures de découragement, que le trouver noir comme la mort et comme la tombe et comme la croix tombale et comme l'absence de charité, votre Hôpital moderne tout civilisé que vous l'ayez fait, hommes de ce siècle d'arg [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Penciled name of "Marjorie Gillmore" on verso in contemporary hand. The image shows a well-dressed and coifed woman sitting in a chair with a punching bag and boxing gloves at her feet. Women's boxing was practiced in England beginning in the early 18th Century, he first advertised American women's boxing match was held in New York in 1876. Women's boxing enjoyed a brief vogue near the turn of the century as some woman's rights supporters encouraged it as exercise. Women's boxing was a display sport at the Olympic Games in St. Louis in 1904 (which was combined with the World's Fair), but it failed to be added to the permanent roster of approved sports. After that it mostly faded from view until its relatively recent revival. It is uncommon to find early images of women with boxing paraphernalia. Undated but presumably someone with better knowledge of women's fashion might be able to make a more informed guess. .
