        Lecons sur les Maladies de la Moelle.

      - Paris, G. Masson Èditeur, 1892, 8°, (6), II, 504 pp., 244 Fig., feiner Halbldereinband; St.a.Tit.; feines Exemplar. 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." Heirs of Hippocrates - - Heirs of Hippocrates 2153; Waller 6253; Haymaker & Schiller, Founders of neurology, p. 476 [Attributes: First Edition]

      First Edition New York Charles L.

A Fine copy with only trivial faults: points and spine ends rubbed, very slight toning to page edges, otherwise fresh, tight and unmarked. BAL 3434. Johnson, p.53. Fine ¶ Twain's comedy of mistaken identities and multiple role switches was published first in various newspapers by the McClure Syndicate and later in the Idler magazine, in 12 numbers. He wrote the novel with the help of recently invented (by Edison) phonographic dictation (precursor of the Dictaphone), supposedly the first author to do so. The novel was also (according to Twain) an attempt to write a book without mention of the weather, again, the first of its kind in fictitious literature. Indeed, all the weather in The American Claimant is contained in an appendix, at the back of the book, which the reader is encouraged to turn to from time to time. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        Description of the Star Camera, at the Sydney Observatory.

      Sydney: S.T Leigh & Co. 1892. Quarto, with a photograph and seven large lithograph plates; original red cloth. The principal observatories in New South Wales during the nineteenth century were at Sydney and Parramatta, and from the 1890s to the 1930s an astrometric camera was run as a field station by Sydney Observatory at Red Hill, which today is Observatory Park, Pennant Hills. The author of this rare work was the Government Astronomer from 1870, who was responsible for some of the major astronomical programmes undertaken in Australia during the nineteenth century. His book shows details of the camera that was used at Red Hill for photographing the Milky Way and for gaining experience in stellar photography. Russell's work with photography was of great importance: see Holden, Photography in Colonial Australia, pp. 61-3 for further details. Marked, some browning of text.

Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, elaborate pictorial decorations to spine and front board gilt, all edges gilt, black coated endpapers. Frontispiece with tissue guard, illustrated title page, numerous illustrations by H. J. Ford in text including 11 full page. Spine rolled, light rubbing to tips, inner hinge slightly cracked but holding to pp. 208-9, light foxing to endpapers, an excellent copy. First edition, first impression, of the third installment in the Fairy Book series, beautifully illustrated by H. J. Ford. "These fairy tales are the oldest stories in the world, and as they were first made by men who were childlike for their own amusement, so they amuse children still, and also grown-up people who have not forgotten how they once were children." (Lang's preface). This collection contains such well-known stories as the Three Little Pigs and the Story of the Three Bears, alongside many less well-known though more fantastic. Andrew Lang (1844?1912), Scottish poet, scholar and journalist, devoted most of his life to folklore and the compilation of traditional fairy stories from around the world. Begun in 1889, "his 'coloured' fairy books have been popular with boys and girls since their first appearance." (Osborne Collection I, pp. 34-36, and II, p. 604).

        THE BROWN OWL: A Fairy Story.

      London:: T. Fisher Unwin Ltd,. 1892.. Stated "Second edition," though we assume this is actually a second printing or even the first edition, first printing with a new title page inserted (see below). His first book, written to amuse his sister Juliet and published when he was just seventeen years old. Illustrated with two full-page, black-and-white plates by his grandfather, F. Madox Brown, a painter closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelites. Harvey does not mention this second "edition"-- published the same year as the first--but does note a fourth edition dated 1898 and that "in all editions the title page is in red and black" [Harvey, A1(a-b)]. This copy in quarter blue cloth lettered in gilt on spine with cloth over boards matching that of the first edition, and with pattern on cloth extending to page edges, as in the first. Plain cream-colored endpapers pasted over the original patterned endpapers of the first edition, which are still just barely visible around the edges. Illustrated extra title page lists three titles in the "Children?s Library" on verso, as we presume does the first, and printer's leaf following p.165 reads "Printed by R. & R. Clark, Edinburgh" as in the first edition. INTERESTINGLY, an 1892 New York, Cassell Publishing Company, stated "third edition" DIGITIZED FROM THE HOLDINGS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO LIBRARY is also clearly published using the same plates (if not sheets) and with the same illustrated extra title page listing three titles, printer?s leaf following p.165, and even with the "T. Fisher Unwin" logo on verso of the title page. One has to wonder whether Fisher Unwin sold the sheets from the various print runs with the offer of a cancel title page already inserted. Or, more likely, whether there was only ever one print run--given that there are very few copies in libraries worldwide (between 50 and 60 copies split between several records on OCLC) and only a handful currently offered for sale online. (Which would make Ford?s estimate that "it sold many thousands more copies than any book I ever wrote" highly unlikely [Harvey, p.4].) Contemporary gift inscription at head of page listing titles in the Children?s Library and another pasted to opposing blank page, few minor smudges to margins, covers rubbed and tips a little frayed, still about very good. .

        Eigh. Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Linz ("a d Graben") 19 3 [] 1892 - 1 Seite, kl-8 (mit Trauerrand). - "Hochverehrter lieber Herr Kastner! Beifolgend sende ich, da Sie es mir gestattet haben noch einige meiner Gedichte Ihnen zur Durchsicht - und wenn möglich etwas davon zur gütigen Veröffentlichung in Ihrem schönen Blatte. Es sind vorläufig nur einige Kleinigkeiten aus meinem Tagebuche . Für Ihre freundliche Karte danke ich Ihnen vielmals . nur Muth verehrter Herr. Ein so edles Unternehmen kann nicht untergehen 'solange edle Herzen schlagen I Liebend für die Kunst entbrannt.' - Treu im Kampf! - Hochachtungsvol[l]st René Rilke". - Unbedeutende kleine Randmängel. Seltener Jugendbrief des 16jährigen René Rilke (die Namensänderung auf Rainer erfolgte erst 1897) an den Wiener Schriftsteller und Herausgeber Eduard F. Kastner aus der kurzen Zeit seines Linzer Aufenthalts (September 1891 bis Mai 1892). Rilke, der eigentlich Offizier werden sollte, besuchte in Linz mit mäßigem Interesse die Handelsakademie. Zugleich begann sich seine dichterische Persönlichkeit zu formen - es entstanden erstmals Gedichte, die ein paar Jahre später auch veröffentlicht wurden. Zwei Monate nach Abfassung des vorliegenden Briefs brannte Rilke mit einem Kindermädchen nach Wien durch und traf sich hier mit Kastner, der die "Wiener musikalische Zeitung" herausgab.

        Lecons sur la pathologie comparee de l'inflammation

      Paris: G. Masson, 1892. Metchnikoff, Elie (1845-1916). Leçons sur la pathologie comparée de l’inflammation faites ? l’Institute Pasteur en avril et mai 1891. xi, 239pp. 3 chromolithograph plates. Paris: G. Masson, 1892. 216 x 135 mm. Quarter morocco gilt, marbled boards in period style. Light toning but very good. Ownership signatures on half-title and title. First Edition. Metchnikoff was awarded half of the 1908 Nobel Prize in Physiology / Medicine for his pioneering research on phagocytes (infection-fighting cells) and their role in physiology and pathology; he was the first to demonstrate experimentally the part that phagocytes play in inflammation. A native of Russia, Metchnikoff moved to Paris in 1888 at the invitation of Louis Pasteur, who gave Metchnikoff a position at the Pasteur Institute. In 1891 Metchnikoff gave a series of lectures at the Institute dealing with “the history of various theories of inflammation and their investigation, and chiefly with the roles of phagocytes in the animal kingdom” (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The collection lectures were published in 1892, with an English translation appearing the following year. Garrison-Morton.com 2307.

        The Victoria Clock Tower.

      1892 - 'The Victorian Clock Tower' Etching, drypoint, printed in black. Buhot's print of the Houses of Parliament and the Clock Tower. Although the print is titled 'The Victoria Clock Tower', the name is slightly mysterious. Although the Victoria Tower was suggested as a name for either the Bell or the Clock Tower in the nineteenth century when Parliament was rebuilt, the nickname of Big Ben became so popular that the idea was abandoned. Instead, the tower at the south west corner was renamed in honour of Queen Victoria during her Diamond Jubilee in 1897, but that was five years after the print was made. Image: 235 by 160mm (9.25 by 6.25 inches). Sheet: 380 by 265mm (15 by 10.5 inches).

        The Principles and Practice of Medicine, Designed for the Use of Practitioners and Students of Medicine

      xvi, [2], 1079, [7], 8 pp. 8vo. An immensely important work of general medical knowledge, written by a co-founder of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler's creation of the first residency program and emphasis on teaching students through clinical experience rather than lectures led many to call him the father of modern medicine. Garrison-Morton 2231: "Osler's textbook was the best English work on medicine of its time. He became Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford in 1904. Besides being one of the greatest of all clinicians, he was possessed of a fine literary style and an extensive knowledge of medical bibliography. Garrison has written of him: "When he came to die, Osler was, in a very real sense, the greatest physician of our time… Good looks, distinction, blithe, benignant manners, a sunbright personality, radiant with kind feeling and good will toward his fellow men, an Apollonian poise, swiftness and surety of thought and speech, every gift of the gods was his; and to these were added careful training, unsurpassed clinical ability, the widest knowledge of his subject, the deepest interest in everything human, and a serene hold upon his fellows that was as a seal set upon them"." First edition, second state ('Gorgias' spelled correctly on p. vi, June 1892 ads follow text). Professionally rebound - black leather spine, cloth boards, gilt titles, new end sheets. An exceptional copy - no stains, marks, tears, or toning to pages. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1892. First Edition. Collectible; Like New/No Jacket.
