List of sixty black and white illustrations. A rare surviving copy of this important reference, made all the more engaging by today's environment of competing fiat currency devaluations. "Hitherto Numismatists when stydying the Origines of Coinage had confined themselves to the materials presented to them in the earliest money of Lydia, Greece and Italy, and on the other hand the Metrologists had almost completely limited their range of observation to the systems of Babylon, Egypt, Greece and Rome. As the Comparative Method has yielded such excellent results in the study of other human institutions, I have endeavoured by its aid to get some new principles which may throw some fresh light on the first beginnings of monetary and weight systems." - from Preface. Attractive gilt decoration upon green front board. Legible gilt lettering upon backstrip. Average external soiling and wear. Several chips from and lengthy openings along backstrip which has become brittle with age. Narrow opening along most of front hinge. Back hinge open. Bookplate inconspicuously removed inside front board. Unmarked. A tender but worthy copy.

Original dark green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, yellow coated endpapers, fore edges uncut. Portrait frontispiece with tissue guard. Tips bumped, cloth slightly rubbed, mild foxing to the endleaves otherwise internally fine; an excellent set. A very attractive set of this classic Gothic novel about a man who sells his soul to the Devil by the novelist and Protestant clergyman Charles Maturin. Although Maturin&#39;s vocation initially seems somewhat incongruous with the Gothic genre, his novel also offers a social commentary on England in the early 19th century, and a heavy critique of Catholicism. First published in 1820, the alterations of this new edition consist of some minor corrections and the added material - the memoir and bibliography.

        Lecons sur la pathologie comparee de l'inflammation, faites a l'institut Pasteur en Avril et Mai 1891.

      . Paris, Masson 1892, 8°, XI, (1), 239, (1) pp., 3 farblith. Tafeln, orig. Halbleinenband.. First and the original edition of Elie Metchnikoff's classic lectures on the pathology of inflammation! - - Russian zoologist and microbiologist Elic Metchnikoff (1845-1916) received (with Paul Ehrlich) the 1908 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his discovery in animals of amoeba-like cells that engulf foreign bodies such as bacteria-a phenomenon known as phagocytosis and a fundamental part of the immune response. - In Messina, Italy (1882-86), while studying the origin of digestive organs in bipinnaria starfish larvae, he observed that certain cells unconnected with digestion surrounded and engulfed carmine dye particles and splinters that he had introduced into the bodies of the larvae. He called these cells phagocytes (from Greek words meaning "devouring cells") and named the process phagocytosis. - Working at the Bacteriological Institute, Odessa (1886-87), and at the Pasteur Institute, Paris (1888-1916), Metchnikoff contributed to many important discoveries about the immune response. Perhaps his most notable achievement was his recognition that the phagocyte is the first line of defense against acute infection in most animals, including humans, whose phagocytes are one type of leukocyte, or white blood cell. This work formed the basis of Metchnikoff's cellular (phagocytic) theory of immunity (1892), a hypothesis that engendered much opposition, particularly from scientists who claimed that only body fluids and soluble substances in the blood (antibodies) -and nor cells - destroyed invading microorganisms (the humoral theory of immunity). Although the humoral theory held sway for the next 50 years, in the 1940s scientists began to reexamine the role cells play in fighting off infections. Eventually Metchnikoff's theory of cellular immunity was vindicated when aspects of both schools of thought became integrated in the modern understanding of immunity." Kara Rogers (Ed.), The Cell (2011), pp.51-53 - - "Inflammation was once regarded as a harmful or disease process, not a normal protective response. The associated heat, pain, and discomfort might cause an affected person to agree. However, Elie Metchnikoff placed the process in its correct biological position by a careful series of phylogenic studies establishing its origin and evolutionary development. Immunity and inflammation came together or, from the reverse perspective, originated with the mesodermal phagocyte. However immune mechanisms may vary among orders and phyla, the phagocyte is the common denominator. Indeed, aside from the controversial and limited antitoxins, these cells were the only general immune mechanism known when Metchnikoff presented his lectures summarizing the research from his and other laboratories. Through its positive and negative chemotaxis and its digestive granules, be it of sponge, frog, or rodent, the phagocyte was described as an active destroyer of living invaders, all obeying the evolutional laws of variation and natural selection. All other subsequently developed inflammatory activities of tissues were quasiindependent adjuncts. - Metchnikoff returned from the August 1890 meeting of the International Congress of Medicine in Berlin unshaken by the reports on specific bactericidal serum. The challenge of the December 1890 reports on serum antitoxins, however, needed a reply. (He first discounted their significance in vivo, since tetanus and diphtheria do not produce serous exudates.) To solidify his position and educate others in his zoological approach, Metchnikoff published his well-received lectures as a book, ... - - In his last lecture Metchnikoff completed his survey by considering immunity in humans. Seeing the concomitant and united evolution of all biological components of the organism, and with bold, sure mental brush strokes as in Zen calligraphy and painting, Metchnikoff merged immunity, neurons, and consciousness 35 years before his student Serge Metalnikov. Metchnikoff regarded the phagocyte as akin to a protist, the most rudimentary organismal mind-system, the anchor that leads across the aeons to the consciousness-mind of humans. He, therefore, accepted mind and consciousness as matter-dependent and emergent. For Metchnikoff, the evolutionary path of immunity spans from the phagocyte, the most primitive mechanism, to human-created applied medical science, the most advanced." Ebra Jan Bibel, Milestones in Immunology (1988), pp.170-173 - - Through Alexandre Piffault in October 2014, I became aware, that the assertion, that the Russian edition "Lektsii o sravnitelnoii patologii vospaleniya" is the Original Edition and that it was "translated into French in the same year", as quoted in Garrison & Morton No. 2307, is wrong , indeed this French edition published by Masson in 1892 is the original and first edition. - The lessons contained in this book were given in French at the Pasteur Institute in April and May 1891: 'Sauf quelques petites modifications, ces lecons ont ete publiees dans la forme qui leur a ete donne dans le cours fait en avril et en mai 1891 a l'Institut Pasteur' p. 10." - Also Heinz Zeiss confirms this in his much enlarged and most comprehensive bibliography of Metchnikoff's work. - - see - Zeis, Heinz: Elias Metchnikow. Leben und Werk.

        Das Gesetz der Transformation der Knochen.

      . Berlin, A. Hirschwald, 1892, Folio, XII pp., 1 Bl., 152 Seiten, mit 95 Abb. auf 12 Lichtdrucktafeln, breitrandiges Exemplar in originalen geprägten Leinenband; feines Exemplar a.d. Vorbesitz des Anatomen Andrew Francis Dixon (1868-1936).. Erste Ausgabe dieses extrem seltenen und bahnbrechenden Werkes, oft zitiert, aber selten gelesen! Ein Muster deutschen Gelehrtenfleißes. Begründung, dass allen funktionierenden Knochen eine durch mechanische Gesetze bestimmte Gestalt eigen sei und dass jede Änderung der statischen Inanspruchnahme nicht nur zu einer für die neuen Verhältnisse richtigen Architektur, sondern auch zu einer funktionellen und mithin physiologischen äusseren Form führen müsse. Kurz, dass statische Veränderungen einen Umbau der Knochen bewirken und dass die Architektur der Knochen unter dem Zwang mathematischer Regeln steht. Friedrich Pauwels hat viele Jahrzehnte später die grundsätzliche Auffassung Wolff's bestätigt, dass die Spongiaszüge nach der Richtung der Trajektorien eingestellt seien und damit das Wolff'sche Transformationsgesetzt korrekt sei. --Wolff begründete eine funktionlle Orthopädie, bei der die pathologischen Form nur insoweit geändert werden muß, als es für die Aufnahme einer korrekten Funktion erforderlich ist. Alles andere besorge der menschliche Körper und seine funktionelle Belastung. Besonders bei der Therapie der Klumpfüsse erzielte Wolff damit große Erfolge. - Julius Wolff (1836-1902) studierte in Berlin, promovierte dort 1860 und habilitierte sich 1864 für die Chirurgie. Seit 1890 leitete Wolff, Neffe und Schüler Georg Joachimsthal's, als Direktor die Universitätspoliklinik für orthopädische Chirurgie in Berlin. - First Edition. Garrison & Morton, No.641 - In the law of transformation of bones, Wolff attempted to establish Culmann's hypothesis of the lines of force within the skeleton, and formed "Wolff's law", that "every change in form and function of a bone, or in its function alone, is followed by certain definite changes in its internal architecture and equally definite secondary alterations in its mathematical laws." - Hirsch V, p.986; Bick, p.99

        Outing Magazine: Volumes 21-25 (October 1892 -- March 1895)

      New York: The Outing Company Limited. 1892-1895. Five bound volumes. Quartos. Three-quarter morocco with textured maroon boards, raised bands, and gilt spine lettering. About near fine, with rubbing at the extremities and some offsetting to the endpapers. The bound volumes contain 30 issues of this sporting magazine which began publication in 1882 as the Wheelman before changing its name to Outing and the Wheelman: An Illustrated Monthly Magazine of Recreation, then simply Outing until it ceased publication in 1923. The magazine published a range of fiction and nonfiction related to the sporting life, covering many popular activities of the day such as hunting, fishing, equestrian, and boating, as well as emerging sports such as ice hockey, football, and aeronautics, often with accompanying photographs and illustrations. These volumes are no different with scores of vintage photographs of late 19th Century football teams and three early illustrations from Frederic Remington. Football in particular was rapidly gaining popularity at colleges across the country despite -- or perhaps because of -- its violent nature. Included within these pages are more than half a dozen articles by Walter Camp, the father of American football. While most feature the Ivy League teams of Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and others, one article focuses solely on West Coast teams including Stanford and the University of California. An interesting window into American sporting life at the turn of the century and the early development of football. .
