        Fasana 1893-1895 III Australie. Photograph album of New South Wales & Victoria, including Five portraits of Aborigines

      Ca 1893.. A photograph album commemorating the visit of the Austrian screw steam sloop "Fasana" to Australia. In 1893, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Este (1863-1914), heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, traveled the world, recovering from tuberculosis. Franz Ferdinand's place in history is secured by him being in the wrong place at the wrong time - his assassination by a Serbian nationalist precipitated World War I. Science was the journey's official purpose and Franz Ferdinand traveled on the torpedo ram cruiser "Kaiserin Elisabeth", one of Austria's then most modern ships. It seems possible that the Fasana may at some time been accompanying Franz Ferdinand on part of his journey. The Fasana remained in the East Indies through at least February 1894. The album is composed of 50 albumen photographs on numbered card leaves. The first 22 photographs are of Sydney, Blue Mountains & 2 aboriginal portraits by Henry King. The following 28 photographs are of the city of Melbourne, other parts of Victoria & aboriginal portraits by J. W. Lindt. Image size 8 x 6" mounted on cardboard album leaves 15 x 12 1/2". Album oblong 4to (16x 13"). Medium green cloth with title "Fasana 1893-1895 III Australie" in white on the front board. Cloth a bit dusty, the first two leaves a bit soiled on the margins. The first photograph with some abrasion on the image and a bit sunned. One or two others a bit lighter, the balance very dark and in very good condition. The first photo is of a ship in Sydney harbor - this is not a signed King photo, and is likely to be a picture of the Fasana - she attracted quite a crowd, sitting on the banks. The five portraits of the Australian aborigines are striking. 1. Aust. aborigine [climbing tree]. King 1430; (Trove locates it only at the Powerhouse Museum) 2. No title (studio shot of three aboriginal women and baby) (likely by King, with 'J4' in the image, no other number) (Trove locates it only at the SLV). The Lindt portraits - 3. "Coontajundra [man] & Langingubble [woman] Workii tribe NT Australia"- evocative and affectionate portrait of a couple, both with traditional scarring. (Lindt 2140) (Trove locates it only at the SLV); 4. Workii tribe NT (Lindt 2139) (Trove locates it only at the National Gallery of Australia) 5. Australian Aboriginals 9. (Likely by Lindt, but unnumbered). This composition poses a man with a spear, a woman seated with a boomerang and a dead kangaroo at their feet, along with another boomerang. (Trove locates it only at the SLV). The New South Wales photographs include numbered photographs by King- Manly, Sydney from North Shore, Neutral Bay, Sydney from Sholl Cove North Shore; Sydney Harbor from Botanical Gardens, Bondi Bay, King St. looking East from George, General Post Office, George St. looking south from Bridge, University Medical Hall, Hyde Park, The Austral (sinking), Zig Zag railway, NSW, Orphan Rock, Lovette Leap, Australian Gum Trees Kammbla Valley, Katoomba Cascade, Katoomba Falls and two portraits of aborigines (see above). The Victorian photographs include numbered and unnumbered photographs by Lindt - Victoria- Fitzroy City from Cascade Tower, (city of Melbourne), Collins St from Watson's Imperial Hotel, Melbourne Collins St from Bourke St (w trams), Grand Hotel from Parliament, Victoria Parade (trams and Commercial Hotel), Melbourne Exhibition Building, Melbourne Town Hall Organ (then one of the largest in the world), Melbourne Parliament House, Melbourne Law Courts (w. Bank of NZ, buildings, Collins & Queens St), Melbourne, Broken Hill Chambers, Queen St. There are also some charming snapshots (4x3") of (Boys swimming in the Yarra, perhaps near Abbotsford, as there is also a photo of large building, possible Abbotsford Nunnery), Valley with houses outside of Melbourne, same valley with a large water wheel), Healesville from Edgecombs Tower, Fernshaw, one mile bend, Fernshaw, Morley's track, Fernshaw (?) river near Surveyors camp, (bush shot), Morley's track, (bush shot), Mathinna Falls upper cascade, (waterfall), (bush shot) (ferns in garden), and the aboriginal portraits (see above). An interesting album, volume III of a suite, which unfortunately, are not present here.

        Essays on Vegetarianism

      London: The Vegetarian Publishing Office,, [1893]. Being a collection of articles contributed to "The Vegetarian". Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, foliate border to boards in blind, pale yellow endpapers. Spine rolled and a little faded, tips bumped and a little worn, small ink annotation to front pastedown, some stains to boards, hinges starting; a very good copy. First edition in book of this eloquent collection of articles, originally contributed by Hills to The Vegetarian, an independent magazine founded by him in 1889, and to which Gandhi subscribed and also contributed. Hills (1857?-1927), a director of Thames Ironworks and a humanitarian and philanthropist, was the first President of the London Vegetarian Society, a breakaway branch set up in 1888 by some of the more radical members of The Vegetarian Society, originally founded in Manchester in 1847. The origins of the London society lay partly in a resurgence of interest in vegetarianism in London during the latter half of the 19th century, with the first London vegetarian restaurant set up in 1876. Ten years later, there were 12 vegetarian restaurants in London, which "had the advantage of being both cheap and respectable" as well as being safe places for women to go alone (Spencer, p. 275). Hills, a great advocate for raw food and a former athlete, was also anxious to "break the image the public had that meat was essential for muscular energy" (ibid., p. 278). He founded the Vegetarian Cycling and Athletic Club and was President of the London Vegetarian Rambling Club. Scarce - OCLC locates just four copies: British Library, Cambridge, National Library of Scotland, and the National Library of New Zealand.

        Otserki naschego poreformennogo obshcshestvennago chozjajstva. [Russian, i.e.: Studies of Our Post-Reform Economy].

      S.-Petersburg, A Benke, 1893. 8vo. Bound with the original printed green front wrapper in a beautiful green half calf with gilt lettering to spine. Front wrapper brownspotted. Bottom 3 cm. of p.1-2 cut off, shaving a few lines off. A few underlinings to the first leaves. XVI, 353, (1) pp. + 29 tables, numbered I-XVI (with a,b,c's: IIIa-b, IVa-h, Va-c, VIa-b, VIIa-b, Xa-bXIIIa-b), on 16 leaves, 12 of which folded, most of them large + 2 leaves of explanation in between.. The exceedingly scarce first edition of Danielson's groundbreaking work on the Russian economic development, which is widely considered the bible of Russian liberal economic thought. Danielson here proposed a way for the Russian economy to consolidate itself without foreign money by - highly controversially - claiming that capitalist industrialization was possible without any change in the political system and emphasizing and defending the peasant class, which so many socialists of the time readily proclaimed doomed. Danielson's economic philosophy was not only pioneering in contemporary Russian economics, it also anticipated many solutions to problems that still face some of the Third World countries today.Danielson famously stated: "The problem facing us could have been summed up in the following terms: What should we do to bring our industry up to the level of Western industry, in order to prevent Russia from becoming a vassal of more advanced countries, and at the same time raise the living standards of the people as a whole? What we did, instead, was to identify large-scale modern industry with its capitalist form, thus reducing the problem to the following dilemma: To what should we sacrifice our cottage industries - to our own capitalist industry or to English industry? When the issue was presented in this way - and this is how it was presented - our cottage industries were doomed and we began to propagate our own capitalist industry". [The present work, pp. 390-91]."[Danielson] reasserted that Russia allegedly lacked foreign markets and reaffirmed that furthering large-scale industry - that it, capitalist development - was prejudicial to Russia's interests. He further condemned the policy of industrialization based on "outrageous protectionism" and suggested that it was still possible for Russia to go back to reliance on agrarian communes and artisanal production. In sum, he believed that Russia could avoid becoming "a tributary of more advanced countries" and that it could foster a non-capitalist, state-controlled industrialization that would increase both productivity and welfare" (Spulber, "Russia's Economic Transitions", p. 43)."[The present work] was written at the suggestion of Marx himself. Danielson made every effort to emphasize the differences between himself and the economic publicists who "defended the people's cause from a narrow peasant point of view". [He] lost no opportunity to refer to the authority of Marx and Engels, even quoting from his private correspondences with them. Nevertheless, there can be no possible doubt that Danielson belonged to the legal Populists". (Walicki, A History of Russian Thought, P. 432).Danielson is often compared to Vasily Vorontsov and the two are considered the major exponents of narodnik economics. Danielson, however, should be distinguished from Vorontsov in regard to the factors that cause underconsumption: contraction in the purchasing power of the popular masses (and not the inability of capitalists to consume the surplus value). Danielson's analysis therefore falls into the school of underconsumption theory, initiated during the classical era of Political Economy by Sismonde de Sismondi. "According to Danielson, capitalist development reduces the number of workers (formerly self-employed craftsmen, small manufacturers, farmers or even laborers) through rapid increase in productivity. This leads to an ever smaller number of workers handling an ever larger mass of means of production, and accordingly also the number of mass consumers, since it marginalizes all those who are being pushed into the industrial reserve army, depriving society of their purchasing power. Crises therefore emerge as a result of contraction of the internal market and of popular consumption." (MILIOS, "Tugan-Baranowsky and effective Demand", p 4.). Danielson's analysis of the contraction of popular consumption linked his theory of crises with the Theory of Relative Pauperisation, thereby adopting a version of the "absolute immiseration" thesis.Danielson - initially a self-proclaimed Marxist - translated Marx's "Das Kapital" into Russian just two years after the first German edition appeared (thus being responsible for the first translation of the work into any language) and corresponded heavily with Marx and Engels up until the end of their lives. He was their primary source of information on the economic situation and development in Russia. While Danielson's research progressed and his own economic philosophy developed, he moved away from the popular Marxist economic doctrine, however, and eventually the famed Marx-translator became the influential critic of Marxism.The theory of Danielson's "Studies of Our Post-Reform Economy" represents "the first attempt to pose and find solutions to problems that still face some of the Third World countries today". Danielson he was "the first to realize that economic backwardness creates its own specific problems, and that underdeveloped countries not only should not but cannot model their development on that of the advanced countries of Western Europe. (Walicki, "A History of Russian Thought", p. 434)

His Atlas of Head Sections, published the same year, was intended to supplement and illustrate Pyogenic Infective Dseases. This copy of the Atlas was once owned by British surgeon George Grey Turner, for whom "Turner's sign"--local areas of bruising and induration of the skin about the navel and loins in hemorrhagic pancreatitis--is named.

        Military Costumes in Old Japan

      1893. OGAWA, K. Military Costumes in Old Japan. 34 pp. Illustrated with 15 black-and-white plates reproducing photographs taken by K. Ogawa. Folio, bound in paper wrappers bound Japanese-style, side-sewn with new blue ribbon, in new cloth box. Tokyo: K. Ogawa, [1893]. |~||~||~||~| Fifteen black and white plates reproducing photographs taken by K. Ogawa, under the direction of Chitora Kawasaki of Ko-yu-kai (Tokyo Fine Art School), showing military costumes from the Fujiwara through Ashiga periods (the 10th through 16th centuries). Ogawa Kazuma (1860-1929) was one of Japan's premier nineteenth-century photographers. Introduced to photography in 1873 while at missionary school in Tokyo, he is one of the most celebrated early Japanese photographers and a founder of the first Japan Photographic Society. He spent three years in the United States learning portrait photography; thus he is considered the first Japanese photographer to study abroad. "In 1894 he began copperplate printing, which enabled the simultaneous printing of type and photographs for the first time" (History of Japanese Photography, p. 356). As the preface states, other photographs in these volumes were supplied by the Englishman William Kinimond Burton (1853-1899) and Kajima Seibei (1866-1824); both of these men were instrumental in the development of photography as a commercial art form in Japan. A two-page preface precedes the plates and a brief, descriptive text is printed below each photo. The half-tone illustrations appear on rectos only and were printed by the National Chemigraph Company of St. Louis. Covers show general, light soiling and a bit of wear at corners, else clean. Very good copy overall.

        Maggie: A Girl of the Streets (A Story of New York)

      [New York: Printed for the author, 1893] First edition, first printing of the author's first book. One of only 1,100 copies (of which less than 50 are known to exist today). Rebound in light tan cloth, lettered and decoratively stamped in black, boards ruled in blind, with the original wrappers mounted and bound into the rear of the text. Some light soiling to the title page and last few pages of text, discreet repairs to the edges of the title page, a few faint hints of scattered spotting, tiny nicks to the top corners of pages 3-7, otherwise bright and clean interior. A lovely copy of Crane's first novel, exceptionally scarce in any condition. Williams and Starrett 1. Maggie: A Girl of the Streets is a novella about the plight of a poor, working girl in New York City in the wake of the Industrial Revolution. After being raised in a rough family environment in a tenement near the Bowery, Maggie becomes the target of public ridicule, is denounced by her family, and later abandoned by her lover, largely due to the circumstances in which she was born. Ironically, the isolation from these accusations turn Maggie into the stereotype she was accused of and appears at the end of the novel as a prostitute moving through increasingly destitute neighborhoods. This true first edition of Maggie was privately published at the author's expense under his pseudonym Johnston Smith after being rejected by several publishers, who claimed it would not be well received because of its blunt depictions of the harshness of poverty. The first edition is exceedingly scarce and very little is known about its publication history, with most of the information drawn from Crane's manuscript deposit to the Library of Congress in January 1893. Indeed, Crane biographers Williams and Starrett note, "Despite numerous investigations, the identity of the publisher remains a mystery, but it is known that the volume was produced by a firm of religious and medical printers in New York City." Maggie would not be republished until after the author established himself with his second novel The Red Badge of Courage (1895).. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Falstaff. Facsimile of the autograph musical manuscript full score

      Milano G. Ricordi 1893. Folio. Quarter dark blue morocco with blue cloth boards, facsimile of Verdi's autograph signature to upper. 1f. (title), 394 pp. + 1f. (colophon). Binding very slightly worn.. A limited edition, this no. 269 of 500 copies. Scarce. Verdi's final opera, Falstaff is a commedia lirica in three acts to a libretto by arrigo Boito after William Shakespeare's plays The Merry Wives of Windsor and King Henry IV. It was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on February 9, 1893. Few would deny how richly Verdi deserved this final triumph, or how heartening a message Falstaff offers. The opera leaves us with a musical image that exactly reflects those famous photographs of Verdi in his last years: an old man, in black hat, with eyes that have lived through a lifetime of struggle, smiling out wisely at the world."

        THE SECRET COMMONWEALTH OF ELVES, FAUNS, & FAIRIES. A Study in Folk-Lore & Psychical Research. The Text by Robert Kirk, M.A., Minister of Aberfoyle, A.D. 1601. The Comment by Andrew Lang, M.A., A.D. 1893

      London: Published by David Nutt, in the Strand., 1893.. First Edition Thus. Octavo, original paper wrappers, french folded Japanese vellum wrappers. Printed on hand-made paper. lxv + 92 pp + [2] pp ads at rear. Lithographic frontispiece by Lockhart Bogle. 550 copies printed, of which 500 were for sale. Issued as Volume 8 in the Bibliotheque de Carabas" series. A slip of paper attached to the front free endpaper is inscribed "With Mr. A. Lang's Compliments". A note in pencil beneath this states "Not Lang's writing"; perhaps this was a secretarial presentation. A bookplate on the front paste-down states "From the Library of Sir Edward Burnett Tylor, Knt., D.C.L., ZF.R.S., The first Header and Professor of Anthropology at the University of Oxford. resented to the Radcliffe Trustees by Dame Anna Rebecca Tylor, June 1917. A stamp beneath this from the Bodlean Library states "Bodl - Libr Duplicate Sold by Authority". Library pocket on rear endpaper, and evidence of a small label removed from the adjacent leaf, light wear and browning to the fragile wrappers; a very good copy. ¶ One of the rarer works dealing with Scottish beliefs in Elves and Fairies, second sight and psychic phenomena. Robert Kirk, Minister of Aberfoyle, wrote this work in 1691 but it was not published until 1815, when an edition of but 100 copies was issued. That edition is of the greatest rarity, and this new edition, which contains a long Introduction by Andrew Lang, is also of considerable scarcity, due to its small limitation and the delicate binding format. An important copy, being Sir Edward Burnett Tylor's copy. Sir Edward Tylor (1832-1917) was an English cultural anthropologist, the author of many important works including the two-volume work 'Primative Culture: Researches into the Development of Mythology, Philosophy, Religion, Language, Art and Customs" (1871).

        The £1,000,000 Bank-Note

      London: Chatto & Windus, , 1893. And other new stories. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt and black, front board lettered and decorated in black, publisher's device to rear board in black, buff floral endpapers. Housed in a custom green quarter morocco solander box. Spine lightly faded, cloth on front board bubbling slightly, upper hinge starting, minor foxing to edges; a very good, bright copy. First UK edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to the German novelist and actress, Wilhelmine von Hillern: "To Frau von Hillern, from one who has read with pleasure and profoundly admires 'Geier Wally.' Mark Twain, Kronkenheit-Tölz, August 1893. Now I've gone and left the 'Die' out! But I was born careless (dumm-geboren). - S.L.C." Von Hillern's novel Die Geier-Wally was a story of female emancipation based on the life of the Austrian painter from North Tyrol, Anna Stainer Knittel (1841-1915). Knittel was the original Geier-Wally (or Eagle Wally) ?" a woman with qualities usually associated with the most fearless of men. Von Hillern immortalised Knittel's feat of roping herself down a rock face to clear out an eagle's eyrie, taking the eaglets and selling them at a fair. The popular story was translated into 11 languages, six films, a musical and an opera. In a letter to Chatto and Windus dated 5 August 1893 (held at Lilly Library, Indiana University), Clemens lists his return address as Kurhotel, Kronkenheit-Tölz, Bavaria. Clemens's lifelong interest in the German language began during his childhood in Hannibal, taking lessons from a shoemaker. In the late 1880s he composed the play Meistershaft in a mixture of German and English, and his translation of Heinrich Hoffman's Struwwelpeter was published posthumously in 1935 as Slovenly Peter. The £1,000,000 Bank Note and other new stories was originally published in the US earlier the same year.

        1893 Max Klinger Secession Etching and Aquatint on Paper

      1893 - This piece, created by Max Klinger in 1893, features a woman with her right arm raised above her head, looking directly out at the viewer. It is a strong pose, and a companion to the word "Secession", written across the top of the piece in large letters. The image measures 11 1/2" x 9 3/4"; with the blank margins, the paper is 19" x 13" overall. The Secession movements took hold in several European cities at the end of the nineteenth century, breaking away from more traditional academic art to embrace more progressive styles, and Max Klinger was a strong supporter and member of the movement in both Munich (formed in 1892) and, more famously, Vienna (formed 1897). Max Klinger (1857-1920) was a German sculptor, printmaker, and painter. In addition to the Secession movements at the turn of the twentieth century, he is associated with the Symbolist movement of the latter half of the nineteenth century. The paper is lightly toned, and there is one very small spot near the lower edge of the paper in the blank margin; otherwise excellent.

        THE WORKS OF WILLIAM BLAKE POETIC, SYMBOLIC, AND CRITICAL ... WITH LITHOGRAPHS OF THE ILLUSTRATED 'PROPHETIC BOOKS,' AND A MEMOIR AND INTERPRETATION

      London: Bernard Quaritch, 1893.. Three volumes. Large, thick octavo. Original green cloth, spines and upper covers elaborately decorated in pictorial gilt after designs by Blake, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Portrait, facsimiles, and plates. Spines somewhat rubbed and dull, some shelfwear to joints and lower edges and bumps and wear to fore-tips, endsheets a bit foxed and cloth a bit handsoiled, some cracking and subtle repairs to inner hinges; still, not a wholly disagreeable set of a work particularly susceptible to such issues. First edition. One of five hundred sets comprising the regular paper issue. Controversial in its interpretation of Blake's texts, this work nonetheless remains, in this issue and binding, something of a landmark of 1890s book production. "The enthusiasm and comprehensiveness of this work are of considerable historical importance" - Bentley. Wade quotes Yeats's inscription in his own copy about the nature of this collaboration: "The writing of this book is mainly Ellis's, the thinking is as much mine as his. The biography is by him. He re-wrote and trebled in size a biography of mine. The greater part of the 'symbolic system' is my writing; the rest of the book was written by Ellis working over short accounts of the books by me, except in the case of the 'literary period' the account of the minor poems, & the account of Blake's art theories which are all his own except in so far as we discussed everything together...."

        Collection of four items related to Coxey's Army and the 1894 March on Washington

      V.p., 1893-1894. First Edition. All items relating to the first (1894) "Coxey's Army," originally called the "Army of the Commonwealth of Christ," the first protest march on Washington, organized by Ohio businessman Jacob Coxey in reaction to the rise in unemployment caused by the Panic of 1893. The march officially started in Coxey's hometown of Massillon, Ohio, and travelled through Pennsylvania, the Virginias, and Maryland; the Western branch of the army, given the name "Kelly's Army" after the California "General" Charles T. Kelly, while more militant, had a much longer way to go, with many of the participants not making it past the Ohio River. Nevertheless, it has been argued that Coxey's Army signalled the birth of the American hobo, as many of the members of the Army continued a life of vagrancy well after the march had ended. This and Coxey's subsequent 1914 march both ultimately failed, as numbers of participants and public interest dwindled. 1. Coxey, Jacob. How To Revive Business, Provide Work for the Idle, Give the United States Good Country Roads, and Make All Other Public Improvements [drop title]. [Massillon, Ohio: J.S. Coxey, 1893.] Petition broadside (32x32.5cm.); cleanly and horizontally split along previous fold, shallow chips and tears and one larger loss to top left-hand corner, additional clean tears throughout affecting text without loss of meaning. Early petition "Enthusiastically Endorsed by the American Federation of Labor, in National Convention, Chicago, Ill., December 15, 1893." Addressed to the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the President of the United States during the economic Panic of 1893, calling for the creation of jobs through the building of roads and other public works. The bottom three-quarters of the broadside devoted to a three-column list for endorsers' names, addresses, and occupations (though this copy remains blank). At bottom edge is rubber-stamped: "Don't write on other side. Paste on more paper and get more names. / Return to J.S. Coxey, [illegible, but Massillon], Ohio." Not in OCLC. 2. Arlington, Dick. Coxey's Commonweal. N.p., ca. 1894. Broadside (30x15.5cm.); large loss to top edge not affecting text, additional minor wear from handling, previous folds. Lyrics to a song of 52 lines composed by Arlington, "Actor and Author, Marshall No. 1, of Coxey's Army," including the chorus: "God bless our noble fifes, / Whose music cheers our hearts, / Tho' we're cold, and weak and weary, / His sweet music makes us cheery, / And courage to our weary souls imparts." Does not seem to have been reprinted elsewhere; broadside not in OCLC. 3. Shepard, Henry, Commander. Industrial Army News, Vol. 1, no. 1, April 20, 1894. Seattle: Industrial Army News, 1894. Folio (51cm.) bifolium newspaper printed on stiff yellow stock, text in five columns, illustrated advertisements throughout. Substantial tear across pp. [1-2] affecting text without loss of meaning, old crude tape repair, hinge reinforced with paper; nevertheless stock surprisingly bright and fresh. The only issue of this newspaper, published by one of the more militant Pacific Northwestern Coxeyite "Armies," issued the day before William Hogan and 500 followers commandeered a Northern Pacific Railway train for the trip to Washington, although they were eventually apprehended by federal troups in Forsyth, Montana. An interesting piece, chiefly comprised of local advertisements, some of whose copy refer to the upcoming march on Washington ("Before Starting Out on Your March To Washington Call at the San Francsico Shoe Co."; "When We Get to Washington We will tell them all about the 'Queen' and '1888' Hams and and Bacon That we Eat when we are at Home"). Washington only in OCLC. 4. Browne, Carl, & J[acob] S. Coxey. Christ Is Our Leader. The Commonweal Rallying Song. [Massillon, OH?, 1894?] Broadsheet (43x22cm.); illus. Edges rather ragged with loss at top left-hand corner; archival repair to lower left-hand corner without loss; uniformly toned, a few small ink splatters. Lyrics to five "Commonweal" songs, including "March on Washington, or, The Unemployed Men's Appeal"; "Interest Bearing Bonds Must Go"; "General Invitation Song to Join the Commonweal"; and "After the Commonweal March Is O'er," all but the last adapted by Browne for Coxey's Army printed on broadsheet recto. "Bulletin No. 4 of the J.S. Coxey Good Roads Association of the United States," with a note by Coxey and "General Orders" by Browne printed on verso. Reproduction of a hand-drawn map titled "Map of the J.S.

Cushing considered Macewen the "chief pioneer in craniocerebral surgery." His experience with meningitis, abscess of the brain and infective sinus thrombosis was summarized in his seminal Pyogenic Infective Diseases of the Brain and Spinal Cord of 1893, which gave sixty-five detailed cases together with operative procedures. His Atlas of Head Sections, published the same year, was intended to supplement and illustrate Pyogenic Infective Dseases. This copy of the Atlas was once owned by British surgeon George Grey Turner, for whom "Turner's sign"--local areas of bruising and induration of the skin about the navel and loins in hemorrhagic pancreatitis--is named.
