      - Farbholzschnitt, auf Japan, im Stock monogrammiert „HR (ligiert)", links unten signiert und datiert „Heine Rath 10", rechts unten bezeichnet „Eigen-Handdruck". Darstellungsgröße 25,2:41 cm, Blattgröße 27,7:41,8 cm. Verso im Unterrand bezeichnet "22 (13 - 22); 1.6. [19]17 H. Rath Versailles 448".- Verso an den Ecken Reste alter Montage. Heine Rat begann sein Studium 1892 an der Berliner Kunstakademie, von 1900 bis 1904 arbeitete er als Meisterschüler Carlos Grethes (1864-1913) in Stuttgart. Nach einer Zeit in Berlin und Werder/Havel und mehreren Reisen, unter anderem nach Skandinavien, Island, Spanien und Nordafrika, erhielt er 1913 eine Berufung an die Stuttgarter Akademie auf den "Lehrstuhl für Holzschneidekunst". In das erste Jahr der neuen Tätigkeit fiel der Beginn des 1. Weltkriegs, unter dem er – obwohl vom Wehrdienst zurückgestellt – physisch und psychisch litt. Ein vorhandenes Herzleiden verschlimmerte sich und er ist mit erst 47 Jahren in Stuttgart verstorben. Am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts hatte in Europa eine neue Blüte des Holzschnitts eingesetzt. Zahlreiche Künstler nahmen sich der traditionsreichen, aber rund dreihundert Jahre ins Abseits gedrängten Drucktechnik wieder an. Die meisten dieser frühen Protagonisten sind heute weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten. Auch Heine Rath ist – selbst unter Fachleuten – nur wenigen ein Begriff.

      [Indian Territory, near present-day Vinita, Ok.], 1892. 44pp. in Cherokee (titplepage in Cherokee and English). on eleven unfolded, unbound leaves (6 x 8 inches). Several leaves toned, small chips at margins, light dampstaining to a few leaves, else very good. A scarce imprint from what was likely the "third and last press made for printing with the Sequoyah syllabary" (CHRONICLES OF OKLAHOMA, cited in Foreman). Amory Nelson Chamberlin represented his family's third generation of missionaries to the Cherokee, operating from a church in Pheasant Hill, near what is now Vinita, Oklahoma. "Mr. Chamberlin devoted all his time to teaching, preaching, translating books, hymns and parts of the Bible and to any other service which promised to contribute to the mental, moral, spiritual and social development of the people who came under his influence. In order to promote his work to the best advantage he had repeatedly requested a hand-printing-press and finally through the headquarters of the missionary society the press was purchased and sent to Mr. Chamberlin....The page issued from this press was about the size of a post card but the number must have been legion. Tracts, programs, religious articles composed by him, passages of scripture and hymns he translated were set in type and printed by his own hand" - CHRONICLES OF OKLAHOMA. Scarce, not in Hargrett.

        The Yellow Wall Paper [in] New England Magazine: An Illustrated Monthly. New Series, Vol. 5. Old Series, Vol. 11. September. 1891 - February, 1892

      New England Magazine Corporation, Boston, Mass 1892 - First edition. Royal octavo. 824pp. Illustrated. Rebound in buff colored buckram with applied paper label. Library label inside each board and the library name in ink on titlepage, one leaf (not part of The Yellow Wall Paper) smudged, but a tight very good or better copy. The first appearance of the famous short story, contained complete in the January, 1892 issue of New England Magazine, seven years before it appeared as a separate volume in 1899. The classic short story of psychological terror, of a discontented wife and mother who weaves a fantasy of repressed creative longing and sexuality out of the wall paper in her room.Ythis story of a woman's mental breakdown trapped in traditional marriage roles was inspired by Gilman's own life experience: it is "one of the most reprinted of all psychological horror stories . This feminist horror tale is Gilman's only work in the genre, but it is enough to ensure her an important place in its history." (Sullivan, p. 171). A nice copy of the first appearance, which unlike the 1897 edition, is illustrated. [Attributes: First Edition]

FIRST EDITION!"This book, dedicated to Charcot, is one of PIERRE MARIE's (1853-1940) most important contributions. It consists of thirty-eight lectures given at the Faculty of Medicine during 1891. Marie discusses normal anatomy, clinical symptoms and particularly the underlying pathology of many forms of spinal cord disease. In the preface he states that he has not tried to cover all such diseases, but only the more usual forms, and those he has tried to treat in a complete manner. The many illustrations are useful adjuncts to the descriptions of such conditions as insular sclerosis (multiple sclerosis), infantile paralysis (anterior poliomyelitis), tabes, ascending paralysis, and familial degenerative changes."

        EPIDEMIOLOGICAL MAP / MAP OF 1892 RUSSIA CHOLERA EPIDEMIC: ????? ?????????? ??????? / No. 18. ????? ??????????? ????? ??????????????? ?????? ?? ???????? 1892 ?. [Map of the Russian Empire / No. 18. The General Overview of the Routes for the Spread of Cholera in the Epidemic of 1892].

      Lithograph in 2 colours (Very Good, some light toning along old folds), 36 x 41.5 cm (14 x 16.5 inches). - [St. Petersburg, circa 1893]. An extremely rare epidemiological map depicting the spread of the 1892 Cholera Epidemic across Russia, printed in Russian Cyrillic, lithographed in St. Petersburg shortly after the outbreak. This extremely rare map depicts the spread of the Russian Cholera Epidemic of 1892, which officially claimed 267,800 lives. The map is one of only a handful of Cholera maps to have been printed entirely in Russian Cyrillic, and was lithographed in St. Petersburg not long after the outbreak by C. de Castelli. The map embraces the western two-thirds of the Russian Empire, extending eastward just past Lake Baikal. The Russian Cholera Epidemic of 1892 was part of the Fifth International Cholera Pandemic (1881-96), and as shown here by a series of red arrows, the epidemic first entered Russian territory from Persia. From there it travelled across the Caspian Sea, through the Caucuses and then up northwestwards across the Steppes to infect Kiev, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Warsaw. Next, the epidemic wheeled eastwards, travelling across Siberia, almost as far as Irkutsk. Russia was especially vulnerable to Cholera due to the great poverty and low hygienic standards of many of its rural areas and urban slums. Moreover, the Tsarist regime’s implementation of health standards and medical systems was irregular and often not well coordinated. Russia had also suffered greatly during both the Third (1852-60) and Fourth (1863-75) International Cholera Pandemics. The horrendous catastrophe motivated the Russian authorities to call a Cholera Conference, held in St. Petersburg in December 1892, during which new medical regimes were agreed. Nevertheless, the epidemic in Russia continued into 1893, killing a further 30,000 people. Cholera maps printed in Russian Cyrillic are extraordinary, and the present work is extremely rare – we cannot trace even a reference to the map, let alone the location of another example. It was evidently extracted from an unidentified book or portfolio that featured a series of other like epidemiological maps (of which the present map is No. 18). The only other map from this series we have ben able to trace is a map of the Russian Influenza Epidemic of October 1889 to March 1890, in the Collection of the Library of Congress (No. 50 in the series). The Rise of Cholera as a Global Pandemic - It is not a coincidence that Cholera spurred the development of some of the first sophisticated works of medical cartography, as the disease quickly rose to become a global scourge by the early mid-19th Century. Cholera, a highly contagious gastrointestinal disease, incubated in pools of warm, contaminated water and spread by human contact. It had its origins in India’s Ganges Delta, where it had been a recurrent epidemic since ancient times. Traditionally, the disease’s spread had been limited to the Indian Subcontinent. However, in 1817, Cholera began to spread rapidly across Asia, carried initially by itinerant merchants and British soldiers. As shown on the present map, the First Cholera Pandemic (1817-24) began in Jessore, Bengal, near Calcutta, and within seven years would spread to infect hundreds of thousands of people from the Mediterranean to China. By 1818, Cholera had spread across India, affecting Bombay, and by March 1820 it had reached Siam, and then a couple months later the Philippines. By 1821, it had spread to Oman, in the west, and down to Java, Indonesia, in the southeast, and up to parts of China, in the northeast. By 1822, Cholera had spread as far as Japan, in the east, and Persia, Syria and the Caucuses, in the west. The following year, it reached as far as Astrakhan, Russia (on the Caspian), in the north, and as far as Zanzibar and Mauritius, off of Africa, in the south. For reasons that are not fully established the First Pandemic was stopped cold in 1824. It is theorised the that disease played itself out in most of the warmer regions, while the exceptionally severe winter of 1823-4 killed

        Original design for an 1892 Christmas card

      (Birmingham, England), 1892. Gaskin, Georgie. An original pen-and-ink drawing for a Christmas card designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family, together with a printed version of the card. Hodson, an important collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts, was a good friend of both William Morris and Georgie and Arthur Gaskin. Dated 1892, the card is illustrated with an elaborate grapevine design, reminiscent of the works of the Kelmscott Press, with children and birds incorporated into the pattern among the vines. The card is signed G. C. France: this was Georgie's maiden name, before she married Arthur Gaskin, a teacher and artist who produced woodcuts for the Kelmscott Press. Both Gaskins studied at the Birmingham School of Art, were strong proponents of the Arts & Crafts movement, and embraced the style and ideas of William Morris. Georgie and Arthur Gaskin were also well-known for their elegant handmade jewelry; Georgie designed the jewelry, and her pieces often featured elaborate flowering vines, a characteristic that can readily be seen in the border of this Christmas card design. Drawing pasted on thick card, which is roughly trimmed; otherwise, the drawing and print are in fine condition. (Drawing measures 8 1/4 by 5 3/8 inches on a board that measures 8 1/2 by 5 11/16 inches; print is 7 1/8 by 4 15/16 inches on an 8 3/8 by 5 1/2-inch piece of card).

        The Scouring of the White Horse, or, the Long Vacation Ramble of a London Clerk and What came of it and The Ashen Faggot, a tale for Christmas.

      London:: Macmillan, 1892., 1892. Small 8vo. xix, 327 pp. Illustrated by Richard Doyle. Original full dark green blind and gilt-stamped morocco, emblem on upper and lower cover: "Mens Sana in Corpore Sano" - "a sound mind in a sound body." - Summer Fields [School, St. Leonards-on-Sea], raised bands, gilt spine title, all edges gilt; spine faded to brown. Fine. With an erotic fore-edge painting depicting a scene from the book, but altered, showing a white horse, on a small hillock known as "Dragon Hill", and "George", a chivalrous knight at the conclusion of a fight with a green dragon, kissing a young naked beautiful maiden (representing Earth, but as if a reward for the victory), unsigned. "It is said that the White Horse will dance on Dragon Hill when King Arthur (or Arthwyr), who is not dead but only sleeping, returns to lead his people once more." Some say the story of St. Michael and the slaying of the dragon and the old Saxon legend are related. - David Nash Ford, "Legend of St. George in Berkshire," The artist is perhaps the same as the Shaw & Thomas Moore books with fore-edge paintings.

        The Unseen Friend

      Houghton, Mifflin and Company, Boston 1892 - First edition. 12mo. Publisher's white cloth decorated and titled in gilt. The white boards a trifle soiled, still easily near fine. A collection of essays on friendship and God. Inscribed by the author to Mary V. Claflin: "Mrs. Claflin, with the love of Her friend, Lucy Larcom. Beverly. June 17, 1892." As a girl Larcom worked in the Lowell textile mills where she also contributed to the *Lowell Offering* where her poems attracted the attention of John Greenleaf Whittier. She taught at the Wheaton Female Seminary and later edited several magazines for children and adolescents, including *Our Young Folks*. Her ascension from mill girl to author and editor served as a model for American women and girls of the lower classes in the mid-19th Century. Mary Claflin was the wife of the abolitionist and progressive Governor of Massachusetts, William Claflin, who according to his biography at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, which holds the William and Mary Claflin Papers: "While governor, Claflin promoted women's suffrage and extended to women greater rights under the law." A very nice association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
