In it he stressed the influence of Meynert and Broca. He described for the first time sensory aphasia and its localization in the posterior part of the first temporal convolution. Wernickes influence can be seen in the work of a whole generation of German psychiatrists, and aphasiologists. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Old & Rare Scottish Tartans with Historical Introduction and Descriptive Notices

      Edinburgh: George P. Johnston 1893, 1st edition, 68 of 250 numbered copies.. () viii, 61, 45pp. Very good. Large quarto. Original dark indigo blue cloth boards with gilt lettering on title and spine. Two large intricate gilt decorations on front, one small on spine. Gilt top foredge, others untrimmed. Scottish crests decorative endpapers. Previous owners signature on verso dated 1893; signed by publisher on half-title verso. Dutch, handmade paper. Square sepia image on title, offset onto half-title verso. 45 tartans described, each with a large cloth samples mounted on seperate opposite page. Cloths have offsetted onto description page. A historically significant reference for its subject matter and innovation. Most Scottish references of the time focused on clans with illustrations of tartans, but Stewarts book focused on the tartans themselves. The idea of mounting actual tartans, woven in silk, had never been done before. It provided an exact record of sett patterns. These 45 tartans were specifically chosen for either their rarity or their age. This is a great copy of a brilliant tartan reference..

      "Bold signature ?Theodore Roosevelt? on 5.25? x 2.25? sheet. Accompanied by Typed Letter Signed ?J.M. Stricker / Secy,? 8.5? x 11?, transmitting the letter, on Roosevelt?s personal Metropolitan magazine letterhead, with original 5.5? x 3.5? stamped postmarked envelope. Fine condition.Miss Josephine M. Stricker (1893-1988) was Roosevelt?s private secretary. In ?Talks With T.R. ?" From the Diaries of John J. Leary, Jr.? (Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1920), Leary recalls an event that occurred as 1920 approached: ??Why not?? Colonel Roosevelt asked this question one day when a visitor jokingly remarked that in the event of his returning to the White House, he might have a woman private secretary. The woman in question was Miss Josephine M. Stricker, who became attached to his staff in the Bull Moose days and was his secretary to the end. ?Miss Stricker is a perfectly good secretary,? he went on. ?She is competent, faithful, loyal. If she is to be criticized at all, it is because she tries to do too much herself. Should I by any chance return to the White House, I should be glad to have a secretary of her attainments. Some of the politicians might not like it, it might be somewhat embarrassing to them, and it would be a precedent, but I am sure that if I could stand it, and she could stand the politicians, we are about the only persons who would have to be considered.??"

        ORIGINAL watercolor of Barbadoe's Park, Kilmarnock, Scotland, signed "G. Ross 1893"

      Kilmarnock, 1893. 21 x 14-1/2 inches. On verso is written in Ross's hand the title and "painted by Gordon Ross, St. Andrew's House, Kilmarnock." Also pasted on the verso is a page from the book Rambles Through Kilmarnock, reprinting a poem that evidently inspired Ross's work: "A wild, weird look has the 'Lady's Walk', / And the trees are stripped and old...". Unframed, on board; some wear and minor repair to corners or margins, overall very good . A very early work by Ross, then age 20, done in Scotland before his removal to the United States. Gordon Ross (1873-1946) was a prolific artist, working mostly in watercolor, from his early days in his native Scotland. As a book artist he tackled everything from Dickens to Shakespeare, including a number of titles for The Limited Editions Club. He is also noted for his sporting work, which included illustrations for The Derrydale Press, Surtees's Jorrocks Jaunts and Jolities, and several large prints of notable sportsmen, including Sir Thomas Lipton, Hugo Meynell, Peter Beckford, and Surtees himself. The eminent collector A. Edward Newton, who wrote the introduction to the Surtees edition, praised Ross in his book End Papers: "No one now living in Great Britain and doing work in his line can compare with Gordon Ross, now living in New York...He has no living superior; I doubt if he has his equal for the very quality needed to illustrate a humorous classic." A superb draftsman, with a gift for portraiture, Ross's work has an ingratiating quality of lively elegance; his originals very seldom come on the market

        HISTORY OF THE EXPEDITION UNDER THE COMMAND OF LEWIS AND CLARK

      Francis P. Harper, 1893., 1893. First edition. 4 Volumes. Cloth, x-cxxxii, 1-352pp. + 353-820pp. + 821-1298pp. + 1299-1364pp. + maps, charts, facsimiles, and large folding map. "A new edition, faithfully reprinted from the only authorized edition of 1814, with copious critical commentary, prepared upon examination of unpublished official archives and many other sources of information, including a diligent study of the official manuscript journals and field notebooks of the explorers, together with a new biographical and bibliographical introduction, new maps, and other illustrations, and a complete index by Elliott Coues." According to Wright Howes, this is "the most scholarly" edition. "Coues was a remarkable man: physician, naturalist, military officer, lexicographer, author, and editor, he brought to his work a superb background of knowledge and experience as well as an ability to organize information and to write fluently. He was responsible for first calling attention to the remarkable scientific accomplishments of the expedition. He was also responsible for rediscovering the original journals of Lewis and Clark which had been, from a practical standpoint "lost" in the archives of the American Philosophical Society for many decades."---Dr. Roger K. Larson. Of the Coues edited edition, Wagner-Camp states "...his edition of 1893 ranks second in importance only to the original journals. His lengthy annotations, based on first-hand knowledge of the territory, are highly informative, and his bibliographical essay is a major contribution." Nicely rebound in brown cloth. Ex-library, with small blindstamp of The Huntington Memorial Library on the title page of each Volume. Two large folding maps professionally reinforced. Four leaves professionally tipped-in at front of Volume I. Else near fine set.
