This for the first time provided an explanation for flexibility and adaptation in nervous function. He began with a systematic delineation of the innervation of muscles and skin by the nerve roots, published in three large papers: in 1892, 1894 [actually 1893], and 1898.' [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        THE WILDERNESS HUNTER. AN ACCOUNT OF THE BIG GAME OF THE UNITED STATES AND ITS CHASE WITH HORSE HOUND, AND RIFLE Inscribed to the Best American He Ever Knew

      G. P. Putnam's Sons (1893), New York & London - Small quarto (6" x 9-1/4") in the original gilt-decorated cream cloth with brown lettering on the front cover; xvi, 472 pages. Illustrated with a frontispiece plate, drawings at the chapter heads and tails, and 23 full-page plates by A. B. Frost, Henry Sandham, J. Carter Beard, Frederick Remington, and Harry Eaton. This trade edition preceded the limited edition of 200 copies, per a "Notice" that is tipped in before the frontispiece announcing that the limited edition is in preparation. A monumental Association Copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "To my beloved friend,/Jacob A. Riis;/may you enjoy the/northwoods as much as I/enjoyed the great plains/& the Rockies!/Theodore Roosevelt/July 1901." The number "14" has been inserted after the word "July," possibly by Roosevelt. Laid in is a pass made out to Riis for a Roosevelt Reception aboard the U.S. Revenue Steamer Androscoggin on 18 June 1910. Of Jacob Riis, his lifelong friend, Roosevelt remarked in his AUTOBIOGRAPHY: "I am tempted to call [him] the best American I ever knew." In 1904 Riis published a biography of his good friend titled THEODORE ROOSEVELT: THE CITIZEN. Jacob Riis, among the most dedicated advocates for America's oppressed and downtrodden, arrived in New York from his native Denmark at the age of 21 in 1870. A pioneer in photojournalism, Riis photographed and wrote about the slums and tenements of a New York in the dawn of a new century. Riis came to Roosevelt's attention through his 1890 book HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES. As Commissioner of the New York City Police Department, Roosevelt accompanied Riis on his evening travels through the slums and witnessed firsthand the inhumane conditions endured by many of New York's inhabitants. In his 1901 book MAKING OF AN AMERICAN, Riis wrote of Roosevelt: "It could not have been long after I wrote HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES that he came to the Evening Sun office one day looking for me. I was out and he left his card merely writing on the back of it that he had read my book and had 'come to help'. That was all, and it tells the whole story of the man. I loved him from the day I first saw him; nor ever in all the years that have passed has he failed of the promise made then. No one ever helped as he did. For two years, we were brothers on Mulberry Street." Roosevelt, in turn, wrote of Riis after his death: "It is difficult for me to write of Jacob Riis only from the public standpoint. He was one of my truest and closest friends. I have ever prized the fact that once, in speaking of me, he said, 'since I met him he has been my brother.' I have not only admired and respected him beyond measure, but I have loved him dearly . and I mourn him as if he were one of my own family." Covers soiled and marked, tight. Spine darkened, gilt still strong, with some chipping at the spine tips. Good or better and an Association Copy of the first order [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Pentamerone

      London: Henry, 1893. First Edition. Cloth. fine. 2 vols. 1st edition of this translation. Original cloth, fine condition, fresher than an Italian bachelor. A book that is painfully common but not every set looks like this one, much in the same way that not every man with a mustache is a pedophile. This 1893 Burton edition is considerably more comprehensive than any earlier translation into English, but for all the praise heaped on Sir Richard, I think (where comparable) it's just a minor improvement over Taylor's translation, if it is any improvement at all.

        Crime and Punishment

      London and Felling-on-Tyne: The Walter Scott Publishing Company, Ltd, 1893. Hardcover. Good. First illustrated edition, uncertain issue and publication date. (Undated title page, which may not be an issue point. Turner's The Walter Scott Publishing Company apparently examined a single paperback copy with a title page dated 1911 and no illustrations, while referencing a 1893 ad for the book, which would make their publication date dubious for the first thus. Line Ettlinger and Gladstone reference an 1893 Walter Scott edition of which I can find little documentation. A bit of a bibliographical puzzle.) Original crimson cloth decorated in gilt, black endpapers. 456pp. Illustrated. Good+ with cloth worn and a bit chipped at head and tail, signatures a little strained and rear hinge split but internally clean. A rare early English-language edition of Dostoyevsky's masterpiece.

        Étude de Femme [Study of A Woman]

      Paris: Édouard Kleinmann, 1893. First Edition. fine. Toulouse-Lautrec. 1st printing, 1st issue, Wittrock 11, the rare state A, of 3 (A, B, and C). This state A precedes the edition of 100 and is geometrically more limited. A fine lithograph on laid Japan paper, with full margins (9 5/8" X 15 1/2"). Signed by the artist with his monogram in black pencil, and it is anomalous to find his lithographs of this type signed by hand, as what is usually seen are his initials applied in the plate or with a stamp. The ownership chain tells a fully comforting tale. Ex-Roger Marx, his tiny indicator in the corner, and his pencil note, in French, along the bottom edge. Ex-The Museum of Modern Art, New York, from their own collection, and sold to subsidize their Acquisitions Fund, an impeccable provenance for the certainty of the lithograph, but even more importantly, for the certainty of the pencil signature. Framed. There is a painting, on cardboard, of the same young woman, in the same pose, at The Musee Toulouse-Lautrec in Albi, but it isn't a great painting, inasmuch as it has none of the background, and she isn't drawn as pretty. Toulouse-Lautrec was 4 feet 8 inches tall, with a normal size body on child size legs, but he was a superstar post-impressionist painter, the first artist to hang in the Louvre while he was alive, and he lived in the Montmartre, and chilled at Le Moulin Rouge (The Red Mill), where a table was always reserved for him, so he ate well, drank fine cognac, and got laid a lot, by dazzling babes, who really liked him.

From the Colophon: "The printing of this edition of the Book of Common Prayer on American hand-made paper was finished on the twenty-second day of November, MDCCCXCIII [1893], at the De Vinne Press in the City of New York. The plan of symbolism and method of decoration were arranged by Mr. Daniel Berkeley Updike: The preparatory studies of plants were made by Mr. William Wells Bosworth: The designs for the borders and cover by Mr. Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, and the final drawings for reproduction by Mr. Joseph Eliot Hill." "The General Convention of1892 authorized a new revision of the Book of Common Prayer for the Episcopal Church, which was to be the standard from which all new and variously priced editions of the Prayer Book would be printed. The pagination was standardized, as were all other aspects of the book, from the text to the precise sequence, instructions, and so on. The Standard Book was made for presentation to various dioceses and dignitaries, with one, specially bound, to be kept by a 'Custodian of the Prayer Book'. The publication committee turned to Theodore Low De Vinne to print the text, and for the ornamental borders it approached a young printer, Daniel Berkeley Updike, who had recently founded his own press. Updike devised the design program and the architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue executed the vaguely medievalized floral borders that had to surround every page of De Vinne's modern type. They tried their best to complement the text, bit it must be said that they failed. However, the book, enhanced bu handsome endpapers, with a beautiful gold-stamped parchment binding with ornate clasps- All designed by Goodhue- is a formidable piece of work. John Pierpont Morgan was the great moving force behind production of this book, collecting significant older Prayer Books in great number for the committee to evaluate and select. The enormous costs of the undertaking of the Standard Book were totally borne by him." (The Oxford Guide to The Book of Common Prayer: A Worldwide Survey.

      San Francisco([1893-1895]). 1st Edition. All Original Documents. 4to. 19 printed documents, dated 1893-1895, with names and other information in manuscript, plus 2 related manuscript notes ; 38 cm. These historic withdrawal notices and communications between the Hibernia Savings and Loan Society and several early Jewish Institutions of San Francisco provide a glimpse into the exchange between San Francisco's Irish and Jewish communities in the late 19th century. "With the Gold Rush, San Francisco's Irish population grew to 4, 200 in 1852; by 1880 this number had reached more than 30, 000, thirty-seven percent of San Francisco's population. They formed cultural organizations like the Hibernia Association (1852) , The Irish Festival (1863) , and The Knights of the Red Branch (in the Mission) . . . The Irish were . . . prominent in business. Samuel Brannan printed San Francisco's first newspaper in 1846. John Sullivan founded Hibernia Savings and Loan and the Hibernia Housing Society, which helped immigrants with loans to buy land and homes." (sfcityguides.org, 2016). Each document deals with the account of a 19th Century San Francisco Jewish institution, some of which include: Chebra B'Rith Shalom, Chebra Shaare Refooah Society, Congregation Ohabi Shalome, Congregation Tiferes Izrael, the California Lodge, and the Society Sons of Jacob. One document also deals with the Polish Ladies Society and Mutual Aid. Signatures included on these documents are those of: Theodor Blodes, Sigmund Fischer, Soloman Meyer, Leiser Zier, Samuel Cohn, David Block, Morris Whitehead, David Cohn, Julius Oraelsky, Adolf Morris, Charles Danziger, Magdalena Kropaniewicz, Paulina Fijalkowky, Isaac Silverman, George Rosenberg, Harris Rubin, Louis Friedlander, Abraham Colman, and many, many others. Some edgewear, and a few have small tears but overall the documents are in Good+ condition. (AMR-49-43)

        Memoirs of A Reformer (1832-1892)

      Toronto: Hunter, Rose & Company, 1893. Hardcover. Very good. 271 p. 19 cm. Frontispiece portrait of the author, 2 b&w illustrations, and a facsimile letter. Grey cloth hardcover with gold print. Ink signature on front free endpaper of Dugald A. McKerrall of the hamlet of Eberts, near Dresden, Ontario. Alexander Milton Ross (1832 – 1897) was a "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, known in that organization and among slaves as "The Birdman" for his preferred cover story as an ornithologist. A man of diverse interests and accomplishments, he was not only a bird expert but also a keen botanist and entomologist. An idealist, Ross manifested his beliefs in radical, anti-establishment activity and in polemical writing. As these Memoirs indicate, he was a committed and outspoken abolitionist but held a variety of other controversial views; he was a health fanatic, vegetarian, teetotaller, anti-vaccination and tobacco crusader, feminist, and eugenicist. The Appendix to this volume suggest he had an ego to match his accomplishments, for he includes praise by famous persons of his age (Gladstone, Garibaldi, Victor Hugo, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Horace Greeley, John Greenleaf Whittier) and rave reviews of his books.

        Étude de Femme [Study of A Woman]

      Paris: Édouard Kleinmann, 1893. 1st printing, 1st issue, Wittrock 11, the rare state A, of 3 (A, B, and C). This state A precedes the edition of 100 and is geometrically more limited. A fine lithograph on laid Japan paper, with full margins (9 5/8" X 15 1/2"). Signed by the artist with his monogram in black pencil, and it is anomalous to find his lithographs of this type signed by hand, as what is usually seen are his initials applied in the plate or with a stamp. The ownership chain tells a fully comforting tale. Ex-Roger Marx, his tiny indicator in the corner, and his pencil note, in French, along the bottom edge. Ex-The Museum of Modern Art, New York, from their own collection, and sold to subsidize their Acquisitions Fund, an impeccable provenance for the certainty of the lithograph, but even more importantly, for the certainty of the pencil signature. Framed. There is a painting, on cardboard, of the same young woman, in the same pose, at The Musee Toulouse-Lautrec in Albi, but it isn't a great painting, inasmuch as it has none of the background, and she isn't drawn as pretty. Toulouse-Lautrec was 4 feet 8 inches tall, with a normal size body on child size legs, but he was a superstar post-impressionist painter, the first artist to hang in the Louvre while he was alive, and he lived in the Montmartre, and chilled at Le Moulin Rouge (The Red Mill), where a table was always reserved for him, so he ate well, drank fine cognac, and got laid a lot, by dazzling babes, who really liked him. fine.

        The Pentamerone

      London: Henry, 1893. 2 vols. 1st edition of this translation. Original cloth, fine condition, fresher than an Italian bachelor. A book that is painfully common but not every set looks like this one, much in the same way that not every man with a mustache is a pedophile. This 1893 Burton edition is considerably more comprehensive than any earlier translation into English, but for all the praise heaped on Sir Richard, I think (where comparable) it's just a minor improvement over Taylor's translation, if it is any improvement at all. fine.

        Le Capital. Extraits faits par M. Paul Lafargue.

      Paris: Guillaumiin & Cie.,, 1893. Small octavo (144 x 90 mm). Original light brown ribbed cloth, spine and front board lettered in black. Frontispiece portrait of Marx with tissue guard. Bookplate to front pastedown. Spine ends and corners a little rubbed and bumped, a couple of shallow knocks to top edges of boards, contents browned, otherwise an internally clean, very good copy. First edition of this selection from Marx's Capital, published in the series Petite bibliothèque économique française et étrangère, the product of a surprising collaboration. Lafargue, a founder of the French socialist party and later Marx's son-in-law, of all the French Marxist writers closest to German orthodoxy, made the selection of the extracts. Pareto, whose economic and sociological views by no means coincided with those of Marx, provided the lengthy introduction.
