        Recueil de thèses de Stomatologie portant sur les anomalies dentaires, particulièrement chez les enfants dégénérés, anormaux et autres.

      Grand in-° relié demi-chagrin. A. Broca : Le bec-de-lièvre complexe de la lèvre supérieure : étude sur l'ostéologie de la face (Steinheil, 1887), 87 pp. Nbses fig. in-texte. - A. Paillasson : Sur les principaux anesthésiques employés dans la chirurgie dentaire : chloroforme, éther, protoxyde d'azote (J.-B. Baillière, 1886), 144 pp. - Ernest Théodore Hamy : L'os intermaxillaire de l'homme à l'état normal et pathologique (Lefrançois, 1868), 89 [1] pp. Très rare thèse de l'un des fondateurs de l'anthropologie française. Fils d'un pharmacien de Boulogne-sur-Mer, après ses deux baccalauréats il poursuit ses études à la Faculté de médecine de Paris. En 1864, externe à la Salpêtrière dans le service du docteur Charcot, il rencontre Paul Broca qui a créé en 1859 la Société d'anthropologie de Paris. Plus intéressé par l'anthropologie physique que par la médecine proprement dite, il le suit à Saint-Antoine et obtient d'assister aux séances de la Société. En 1867, il devient membre à part entière de la Société d'anthropologie qui le charge de recueillir pour son musée les crânes mis au jour lors de travaux dans les cimetières du nouvel Hôtel Dieu. Cette même année, dans le cadre de la préparation de l'Exposition Universelle, il est chargé de l'étude de momies et de crânes égyptiens rassemblés par Mariette. Après sa thèse, P. Broca le prend comme assistant au laboratoire d'études anthropologiques de l'École pratique des hautes études. En 1869, en raison du succès de l'exposition égyptienne, il est invité en Égypte pour l'inauguration du canal de Suez. Il y recueille des artéfact préhistoriques. Il participe à des fouilles préhistoriques dans l'Eure et l'Eure-et-Loir en 1870. Il remplace en 1872 l'assistant malade d'Armand de Quatrefages, titulaire de la chaire d'anthropologie du Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, et reprend définitivement son poste en 1873, devenant aide-naturaliste. Quatrefages et Hamy précisent les mensurations et indices de base des inventaires ostéologiques et rédigent Crania ethnica (1875-1882), travail basé sur des données anthropologiques françaises et étrangères, similaire au Crania de Thurnam et Davis et au Crania Americana and Crania Aegyptiaca de S. G. Morton. Ils contribuent à la formation de l'anthropologie préhistorique et identifient la « race de Cro-Magnon » en 1878. Ernest Hamy est l'un des premiers en France à reconnaître l'homme de Néandertal. Comme Quatrefages, il est partisan des thèses monogénistes. En 1892, à la mort de Quatrefages, il devient titulaire de la chaire d'anthropologie du Muséum. - Giraldès : Des maladies du sinus maxillaire (Paris, Imprimerie Martinet, 1851), 54 pages.

        Capri.

      Splendido acquerello, di notevole qualità pittorica, eseguito su cartoncino, monogrammato e datato; raffigura il panorama da una spiaggia verso la villa di Tiberio e Punta Campanella. La spiaggia, raffigurata con effetto di notevole realismo e bel gioco di luci fra i sassi e le onde, appare in primo piano. L'artista, è tipico esponente del vedutismo tedesco di fine secolo, molto realista; in parte pare ispirarsi allo stile del celebre Karl Lindemann Frommel. Misura: 380x550. Eccellenti condizioni, sia per la brillantezza ed il realismo dei colori che per lo stato di conservazione.

        Archive of Artwork, Fanzines and Correspondence (late 1960s - early 1980s)

      A substantial archive of work by a young, gifted fantasy artist, who had just begun to appear in the professional magazines and had begun an apprenticeship with a master etcher when he died at a young age. Riley had been a contributor to a number of small fanzines, and editor for a time of two different zines. Included are copies of the zines he edited and others he collected or traded for; original artwork, pasteups and manuscripts for zines he edited; other printed materials and others' original artwork; plus a large body of correspondence related to the zines and to fantasy and science fiction in general. Included in the lot are more than 40 different fanzine titles, many of which do not appear on Locus Magazine's online checklist of "Science Fiction, Fantasy, & Weird Fiction Magazine Index: 1890-2006+." Of these 40+ titles there are over 95 different issues, plus an extensive folder pertaining to artist Kenneth Smith's publication Phantasmagoria, which includes prints, original artwork, PR materials, etc. Some notable highlights include: ¶ two sketchbooks of Riley's artwork; ¶ a complete run (Issues 1-9) of Return to Wonder, one of the zines Riley edited, plus manuscripts and artwork for Return to Wonder #6-9; ¶ correspondence from authors such as Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, L. Sprague De Camp, Philip Jose Farmer, Norman Rockwell, Ben Bova, and others; ¶ a 3-page original typescript by science fiction writer Edmond Hamilton, "Look Forward, Look Back," and a copy of the issue of Return to Wonder that was devoted to Hamilton's work, inscribed by Hamilton and by his wife, science fiction author Leigh Brackett; ¶ a typescript of an original piece by Brackett that was published in RTW about becoming a writer, which mentions her collaboration with William Faulkner on the screenplay of The Big Sleep; ¶ a large file of correspondence from artist Kenneth Smith, including artwork, photographs, an "Autobiography" typescript and interview typescript; ¶ a large file of correspondence from Jim Smith, a writer and college roommate of author Stephen King, with many letters, anecdotes, etc., about King as well as short story and poetry typescripts by Smith, 1975-1982 (i.e., preceding King's commercial breakthroughs); ¶ a large file of correspondence with SF/Fantasy publisher Donald Grant, 1971-1980, including a 33-page corrected typescript of an interview with Riley dated June 26, 1976; ¶ a file of correspondence with the literary agent and Robert E. Howard scholar Glenn Lord re Robert E. Howard, to whom one issue of Return to Wonder was devoted; ¶ an extensive file (approximately 120 items) of correspondence from Michael Taylor, co-author and co-editor of Return to Wonder for part of its duration, including a typescript of a co-authored story and a second, extensively corrected typescript. ¶ This is a significant archive that adds to the body of knowledge of 1970s science fiction fanzines; restores and enhances the limited record of one of the fine artists of the genre; and puts the fanzines of that period into historical context. A more detailed inventory is available on request. .

        Rivers of Grass. An Homage to Marjory Stoneman Douglas

      Minerva: The Press at Wimberly Boca Raton, FL: Minerva: The Press at Wimberly. 2012. One of 36 copies, on Yu Kou heavy for the images and text and interleaved with Yu Kou light paper, hand numbered and signed by the artist on the colophon page, "DKrause." Page size: 9-7/8 x 6-7/8 inches; 10pp. Bound: loose as issued housed in envelope made of terracotta Lokta oil paper fastened with tie (combination of terracotta and light orange string and tan leather cord) on lozenge-shaped seed-pod from mahogany tree serves as the fastener, printed letterpress (with a small amount of ink) with the words RIVER OF GRASS and Dorothy Simpson Krause on the lower left front corner. The artist tells us that the envelope, 7 x 10 inches, was selected as the sort of thing an early settler might use to carry a parcel of documents. The seven images (six images plus titlepage) in the book were produced from historic images selected by the artist (credits listed on last page) as well as the artist's own photographs. The photographs of the Everglades were combined with the historic images on the computer and, in each, separated a layer that became the letterpress printing plate. The resulting images have achieved a depth and luminosity not otherwise possible. Ghost-like images reflecting the history of the Everglades combine with the disastrous effects of industrial mismanagement. However, the beauty and vastness of this natural wonder shine through in each image. A laser printer was used to print the under-layer for letterpress. The unprinted margins of the paper were torn away to create a deckle edge. Each sheet was then folded into a folio and then opened flat and a sheet of Yu Kou sheer was used between each folio. The interleaving of lighter- weight sheets somehow, when turning the pages, suggests the movement of the grasses in the Everglades. Marjory Stoneman Douglas (1890-1998) was an American journalist, writer, feminist and environmentalist. The worked for "The Miami Herald" and wrote over 100 short stories. It is, however, for her 1947 book, THE EVERLADES: RIVER OF GRASS, that she is most remembered. Compared to Rachel Carson's SILENT SPRING for its impact on the environment, it redefined the national image of the Everglades, pointing out that the entire ecosystem of south Florida was dependent on this natural wonder. Dorothy Simpson Krause's homage to Marjory Douglas, and, therefore, to the Everglades, is a beautiful book with a strong and vital message. See an Image.

        The Tragic Muse

      London: Macmillan and Co. London: Macmillan and Co., 1890 First English edition. One of 500 copies. Three volumes. Original publisher's blue cloth. Louis Auchincloss's copy bearing his bookplate to each volume. An additional former owner bookplate to the front pastedowns of each volume; some wear with fraying to spine ends and corners, some tears along spine, hinges cracked and secure. A good, completely unrestored set, housed in a custom cloth box with folding chemise. Edel & Laurence A34b. Auchincloss's writing embodied the old New York traditions of Henry James and Edith Wharton. Auchincloss wrote in his 1977 novel, The Dark Lady: ".Do you know Henry James's The Tragic Muse? It's the best novel written about an actress. A rising young diplomat asks the heroine to give up her career to become his wife and a future ambassadress.Ah how James saw it, the idiocy of any man's thinking that a real actress could even consider balancing love against the stage!".

        The Principles of Psychology

      New York: Henry Holt. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of William James's masterpiece, the foundational work in establishing psychology as an experimental science. "The Principles of Psychology, which appeared in 1890 after twelve years in the making, is undoubtedly his magnum opus. James was an established Harvard professor and a psychologist and philosopher with an international reputation when Principles was published, but the book alone guaranteed him permanent renown. Since psychology and philosophy were not distinctly separated in 1890, Principles is not only a textbook in experimental psychology but also a landmark contribution to the philosophy of psychology or the philosophy of mind. Discussions of the mind-body relationship and of free will, for instance, accompany explanations of brain functions and of physiological optics. Principles, a massive study that occupies two volumes and twenty-eight chapters, is absorbing for the philosopher and the psychologist alike. Russell called Principles 'the most delightful and readable book on its subject,' a sentiment that many modern thinkers still hold" (Myers, William James: His Life and Thought). First issue, with "Psy-chology" hyphenated in ads facing title pages and error ("notice an, d" on line 19, p.307) in volume I. Provenance: with ownership signature in pencil in each volume on flyleaf of "C. E. St. John", presumably Dr. Charles Edward St. John (1857-1935), noted astronomer and physicist and student of James's at Harvard. New York: Henry Holt, 1890. Octavo, original green cloth. Light rubbing to cloth with abrasion on front board of volume I, remnants of bookplates on endpapers. Text fine. Rare.

        Ur Gösta Berlings saga.

      Berättelse från det gamla Värmland. Belönad med högsta priset vid Iduns större pristäfling år 1890. Presentupplaga. Stockholm, Gernandts boktryckeri-aktiebolag, 1891. 67 s. Häftad i mörkgrönt omslag med guldtryck. Ryggen med prydlig lagning överst.. När Selma Lagerlöfs syster Gerda på våren 1890 föreslog att hon skulle sända in något till "Iduns" novellpristävling hade hon ingenting klart av romanen som hon redan arbetat på under lång tid. In i det sista filade Lagerlöf på de fem kapitel hon till slut skickade in. Bidraget belönades med högsta pris, 500 kronor, och trycktes i tidningen "Idun" samt i denna särskilda "bokupplaga om endast ett par hundra exemplar, afsedd att utdelas till hrr tidningsutgifvare och litteraturgranskare". Prispengarna användes genast till att betala av på ett lån och Selma Lagerlöf gladdes över att, som Elin Wägner påpekar, "en uteslutande manlig prisnämnd uttalat sig om tävlingsskriftens ovanliga förtjänster 'som ställde den långt framför det mesta av vad inhemsk litteratur på länge haft att bjuda'."

        4 Autograph Letters, signed, to Grant Allen

      n.p. 1890 1897 n.p., 1890-1897. 4 vols., 12mo. 1-1/2 to 4 pp. . Vickery, The Literary Impact of The Golden Bough, pp. 88-89 . A fascinating group of letters whose scope ranges from animism and tree worship to private topics. In one letter, Frazer thanks Allen "for the kind present of 'The Attis'" (Allen's translation of The Attis of Caius Valerius Catullus - with dissertations on the myth of Attis, on the origin of tree-worship -, 1892). Frazer later devoted a section to this subject in Adonis, Attis, Osiris. Studies in the History of Oriental Religion (1906). Elsewhere, Frazer observes, "I should be pleased and proud to make your acquaintance - Whether the profit would be mutual, is, I fear, much more than doubtful. I am no talker and I am afraid you would find me an exceedingly dull fellow. The few ideas I have occur at long intervals, and though, by being stored up and set out together in a book, they make a little show, yet the intervals (which form much the greater part of my life) are times of 'long barren silence' and intellectual vacuity. Not that I am idle at such times, I am reading and studying. But the process of absorbing ideas, however pleasurable to the absorber, is hardly interesting to the bystander. Forgive me for saying so much about myself - It must be very disappointing, after reading a book with interest or even admiration, to find that the writer is a very dull person." The recipient is Charles Grant Blairfindie Allen (1848-1899), a prolific Canadian-born writer, reviled in the mid 1890s as "the prophet of the new hedonism." As Vickery notes, discussing The Attis, "the first to make extensive use of Frazer's ideas was Grant Allen - he drew heavily on The Golden Bough, which he calls 'a profound and epoch-making work' - Allen's ideas are of less importance than is the swiftness with which he absorbed and applied the perspectives afforded classical literature by The Golden Bough." Frazer autograph material is quite uncommon, especially with such good content

All but a handful of the volumes with a list of illustrations to which the set has been collated, all plates present bar three in the 1900 volume.
