        THE GERM GROWERS. AN AUSTRALIAN STORY OF ADVENTURE AND MYSTERY. By Robert Easterley and John Wilbraham [pseudonym]

      Melbourne: Melville, Mullen, & Slade. London: Hutchinson & Co.,. 1892. original medium blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in dark blue.. Cloth rubbed at spine ends, corner tips, and along outer joints,. spine panel a bit darkened, some foxing and darkening to endpapers, a. very good copy. Still a nice copy and better than most extant copies.. (#110244). First edition, Australian issue. The Australian issue utilizes the same sheets as the British issue with signature [A] replaced. Among the earliest novels to postulate an invasion of earth by malignant aliens. "The two most imaginative and colorful of the early [Australian] romances were THE LAST LEMURIAN: A WESTRALIAN ROMANCE (1898) by G. Firth Scott and THE GERM GROWERS (1892) by Robert Potter... Potter's THE GERM GROWERS more closely resembles the SF of today. It is probably the world's first story of an alien invasion, produced in Melbourne six years before H. G. Wells's THE WAR OF THE WORLDS. Shape-shifter aliens establish bases in wilderness areas of Earth, including northwest Australia. Unlike the Martians of Wells's book, they do not resort to open warfare with vastly superior technology, but use airships, invisibility, and biological weapons. While exploring the Kimberleys, two English youths stumble upon a plot by the aliens to destroy humanity through the breeding of new forms of plague. At first the conspirators appear merely to be members of some secret society, but it is soon revealed that they are nothing less than devils from outer space (their leader being Signor Niccolo Davelli). The heroes refuse to work for these disease-disseminating devils, and good triumphs over evil when they are rescued by an angel. As in much modern 'aliens among us' SF, the world remains blissfully unaware of the danger by the novel's end because another more benevolent race of aliens steps in to keep the peace." - Blackford, et al., Strange Constellations: A History of Australian Science Fiction, pp. 14-6; 227. "History as an occult battle between two races for humanity." - Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 50. "A literate, pre-Wellsian novel with considerable imagination." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1227. Bleiler, Science- Fiction: The Early Years 646.

        AUTUMN

      1892. Edited by H.G.O. Blake. Boston and New York: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1892. Original dark green cloth with facsimile signature in gilt, beveled. First Edition, which consisted of only 1020 copies (Borst says there were only 500, but Blanck's figure is more likely). This was the last of Thoreau's four "seasons" to be posthumously published from his journal: EARLY SPRING had come out in 1881, followed by SUMMER in 1884; curiously, WINTER came next, in 1888. Even using Blanck's larger number of copies, AUTUMN is one of the two scarcest (EARLY SPRING consisted of 1018 copies, while the other two consisted of 1260 and 1550 respectively).~This is a bright copy, fine with just a bit of rubbing at the extremities. With the bookplate of Henry Hornblower, plus part of the small Brentano's booklabel (probably from this copy's initial sale). Borst A11.1.a; Blanck 20130.

An interesting and attractive book, "an important work on the flies in use during the latter past of the nineteenth century - exquisite colored plates -" (Wetzel), which went into several editions. It was written (and compiled from her father's correspondence) by the daughter of Charles F. Orvis, famed American tackle-maker and author of "Fishing With the Fly" (1883). Goodspeed notes that while Mrs. Marbury was "not herself a fisher-woman", she was an expert at making flies, which she tied without the aid of a vise. Much of the book consists of the replies her father received from anglers to whom he had posed questions concerning the sport

Minor wear and scuffing to the leather extremities, front joint just starting at top. Bright and clean internally.'THE THEORY OF WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY'. Hertz produced experimental proof of Faraday and Maxwell's hypothesis that 'electrical waves can be projected through space...' starting in 1887. 'By inducing the waves to produce an electric spark at a distance, with no apparentt connexion between the oscillator and the spark gap, and by moving the sparking apparatus so that the length of the spark varied, [Hertz] proved beyond question the passage of electric waves through space...J. J. Thomson described the results as 'one of the most marvellous triumphs of experimental skill.'' This volume collects and reprints papers on electrical waves first published between 1887-1890 in Annalen der Physik und Chemie. Includes explanatory notes and Hertz's 31 page introduction.'This discovery and its demonstration led directly to radio communications, television and radar.'

        The Principles and Practice of Medicine

      New York: Appleton and Company. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE IN ORIGINAL CLOTH of Osler's magnum opus: "One of the most influential textbooks of general medicine ever written" (Norman). "During his first four years in Baltimore, Osler had relatively few duties. The routine work in the hospital being performed by his residents, he was free to devote more time to writing. The principal result was his Principles and Practice of Medicine, published to great acclaim in 1892. Dedicated to his early teachers, Johnson, Bovell, and Howard, it was one of the last single-authored textbooks to cover the whole of medicine. Although Osler later complained that effecting the revisions for subsequent editions was a millstone around his neck, it turned a national physician into an international figure. It was eventually translated into French, German, Spanish, and Chinese and went through eight editions during Osler's lifetime..." (Dictionary of National Biography). "The timing of the textbook was almost perfect. Principles and Practice was at once a monument to the achievements of nineteenth-century scientific medicine and a gateway to the twentieth century. Osler had mastered the mainstream clinicopathological tradition of the past seventy years. He was thoroughly up on the bacteriological work of the 1880s that had solved such a central conundrum in the etiology of infectious disease. With a few exceptions, his accounts of the natural history of disease still make sense, in some instances are considered classic. In 1892 the endocrine system had not been understood, the body's immune system was still a mystery, viruses could not be identified, principles of nutrition and genetics were largely unknown, and x-rays, electrocardiographs, and scores of other diagnostic devices had not yet been developed" (Bliss, William Osler: A Life in Medicine). First sate, with the misspelling "Georgias" on page vi. With ads dated March 1892. There are first state copies with ads dated November 1891 and March 1892; both were printed and distributed by March 17, 1892. There were 3000 copies printed of the first state. (Sir WIlliam Osler: An Annotated Bibliography, 1375). New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1892. Thick octavo, original cloth rebacked with original spine laid down. Handsome bookplate of Harry Hyland Kerr on front pastedown and ownership signature of James Kerr dated 1892 on front free endpaper. James and Harry Hyland Kerr were noted Canadian-American surgeons. Some light rubbing to cloth, a few pages with repairs to outer text edge. RARE IN ORIGINAL CLOTH.

The papers include Hertz&#39;s report of his proof that electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed as light ("Ueber die Ausbreitungsgeschwindigkeit der elektrodynamischen Wirkungen", first published in the Sitzungsberichte der Berliner Akademie der Wissemchaft, 2 February 1888). "For Hertz his determination... of the velocity...was the most exciting moment in the entire sequence of experiments" (DSB). The later papers report a series of "more qualitative experiments carried out by Hertz in 1888 on the analogy between electricity and light waves" (DSB), in which he showed that electromagnetic waves are longer than light, but like light can be refracted, reflected and polarized. "This discovery and its demonstration led directly to radio communication, television and radar" (Dibner Heralds of Science 71)..

        ACROSS THIBET: being a translation of "De Paris au Tonkin à travers le Tibet inconnu." (IN ORIGINAL PUBLISHER&#39;S PRINTED DUST JACKET)

      New York: Cassell, 1892. Bonvalot, Gabriel. ACROSS THIBET: being a translation of "De Paris au Tonkin à travers le Tibet inconnu." Translated by C. B. Pitman. New York: Cassell Publishing Company, (1892). First American Edition, in one volume. AN ASTONISHING COPY in original publisher&#39;s decorated cloth, almost completely unworn (although noticeably foxed on both covers and spines) with the ORIGINAL COLORED FOLDING MAP in the front pocket, so often missing (fresh, with only two minor nicks). Furthermore this copy remains IN THE EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL PUBLISHER&#39;S PRINTED DUST JACKET (some soiling, wear, closed tears, the lower quadrant of the DJ&#39;s spine panel has gone missing). Generously illustrated throughout, many full page, inspired by photographs taken by Prince Henry d&#39;Orleans. Inner hinges tight and uncracked for such a large, heavy book. Bonvalot (1853-1933) was a French explorer, author, and legislator. In 1889 he set out to make an unparalleled journey via the most primitive means from France to French Indochina. Accompanying the seasoned explorer (unquestionably equal to England&#39;s Younghusband and Swedin&#39;s Hedin in terms of Tibetan exploration) was Prince Henri d&#146;Orleans, a young aristocrat with a craving for adventure and a talent for photography. After crossing Russia, the Frenchmen mounted up in Siberia, then headed south towards Tibet. The resultant equestrian winter journey across the Tibetan plain and the Himalayan mountains is nearly too arduous to believe. Before his journey was over, Bonvalot had ridden across Siberia, the Takla Makan desert, Tibet and China, reaching Hanoi in little more than a year after setting off from Paris. This astonishing journey, which has never again been attempted, inspired Jules Verne to use Bonvalot as the role model of his intrepid fictional reporter, Claudius Bombarnac. The Long Rider&#39;s Guild Press has recently reprinted the book determined to show that fact is often more remarkable than fiction. A most appealing copy. For those interested in fictional Tibet, we do have fiction in stock: several different editions of James Hilton&#39;s LOST HORIZON (including the original manuscript). First American Edition. Fine/Good to Very Good.
