TRAVEL JOURNAL: Miss Turner
Original leather bound journal; 9 by 12cm; 92 pages, with 41 watercolour or pen and ink drawings with accompanying manuscript text. The journal describes and illustrates the sea journey from England to China via Gibraltar, Malta, The Suez al, Aden, Ceylon and Penang, reaching Hong Kong on the 19th November 1893. Hong Kong Harbour: "The loveliest spot my eyes ever looked upon... Transparent green waters surrounded by hills rich in yellow, red and brown, with misty purple shadows". Miss Turner then travelled by canal house boat Hongchow, where it would appear she was to take up missionary work. "What a state these poor people must live in! Night after night, you hear guns & crackers being let up at intervals - to frighten away evil spirits! And just now - having sent their 'kitchen-gods' up to heaven for a week - the whole night is hideous with these noises - in self protection I suppose." Very good, all the images are fresh and the hand writing is legible. Spine of the journal defective.

Ein wichtiger Brief zur Geschichte der Psychopathologie unmittelbar vor der Freud'schen Revolution. "... Ich bin mit Ihren Ausführungen vollstaendig einverstanden. Eine große Irrenanstalt wird nie eine Reihe wichtiger wissenschaftlicher, socialer, therapeutischer Aufgaben loesen, welche eine Klinik zu lösen im Stande ist. Unter den wissenschaftlichen Aufgaben zaehle ich vor Allem die Einreihung der normalen practischen Psychologie (Menschenkenntnis) in die Psychopathologie. So ist der Inhalt der Delirien nie u. nimmer die Ausgeburt des kranken Hirns, sondern die fessellose Reflexion des innern - geheimen - Seelenlebens des normalen Menschen. Vor allem aber ist die heutige Wissenschaft, weil die Fachmänner keine praktische Psychologie getrieben haben, in der Frage der der Moral insanity auf einem Abwege, der von eminenter socialer Gefahr ist. Nur klinische Vertiefung kann in jedem speciellen Falle die Wahrheit feststellen. Auch diagnostisch sind Fortschritte unbedingt noethig, die nur klinische Arbeit feststellen kann, indem unter dem Schlagworte Manie, Paranoia etc. so mannigfache Bilder, die prognostisch u. therapeutisch sehr verschieden sind, zusammengeworden werden ...

Aberdeen: Thomson & Duncan, 1893. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good. 36 pp. Light blue staple-bound wraps. First British edition. Very Good with offsetting from rusted staples to front and back wraps, light soiling and toning to wraps, slight wrinkling to pages. Includes a portrait of the author and a photograph of a Clanton, Alabama lynching in 1891. A scarce publication by investigative journalist Ida Bell Wells-Barnett (1862-1931), an outspoken African-American woman who crusaded tirelessly against lynching despite great personal risk. She embarked on a six week British speaking tour in 1893. Her first speech in the drawing room of a Scottish widow officially inaugurated The Society for the Furtherance of the Brotherhood of Man, a small group of Quakers, abolitionists, and temperance activists whose name graces the verso of the front wrap. The organization unfortunately couldn't keep it together for even the short length of Wells' trip and her campaign proved to be a disappointment. The following year she tried another UK campaign with a tentatively-restored SFBM and was more successful. (Silkey Black Woman Reformer pp. 63-65 and in Women Shaping the South pp. 97-106). Only two physical copies of this edition appear in American institutions in a recent OCLC search. All of Wells' original work has become scarce in the trade and sought-after by collectors in recent years.

Leipzig, B.G. Teubner, 1893. 8vo. Original printed wrappers, no backstrip. In "Mathematische Annalen. Begründet 1893 durch Alfred Clebsch und Carl Neumann. 42. Band. 3. Heft." Entire issue offered. [Hilbert:] Pp. 314-73. [Entire issue: Pp. 314-604]. ¶ First printing of Hilbert's fundamental landmark paper in which he "INTRODUCED STUNNING NEW IDEAS WHICH HAVE DEEPLY INFLUENCED THE DEVELOPMENT OF MODERN ALGEBRA AND ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY." (Buchberger. Gröbner bases and applications. P. 63). The ideas presented in the present paper was introduced in his 1890-paper, but here he "called attention to the fact that his earlier results failed to give any idea of how a finite basis for a system of invariants could actually be construted. [...] To show how these drawbacks could be overcome, Hilbert thus adopted an even more general standpoint [...]. He described the guiding idea of this culminating paper of 1893 as invariants could actually be constructed". (Hendricks. Proof theory: history and philosophical significance. P. 59) Hilbert's first work on invariant functions led him to the demonstration in 1888 of his famous finiteness theorem. Twenty years earlier, Paul Gordan had demonstrated the theorem of the finiteness of generators for binary forms using a complex computational approach. Attempts to generalize his method to functions with more than two variables failed because of the exceedingly complicated calculations involved. Hilbert realized that it was necessary to take a completely different path. Hilbert sent his results to the Mathematische Annalen. Gordan, the expert on the … [Click Below for Full Description]

THOMSON, William McClure.
New York, Harper & Brothers, 1882-86. Three volumes 8vo. Original green cloth over bevelled boards, boards and spine blocked in gold, red and and black, maroon endpapers; pp. xx, 592; xxiv, 689; xxxiv, 711, 6 [publisher's catalogue], each volume with wood-engraved frontispiece, retaining tissue guard, folding maps, wood-engraved plates and illustrations in the text; despite being ex-library (US Methodist school), near-fine, and very heavy. Largest, much expanded, best and rarest edition. Thomson (1806-1894) was educated at Miami University and Princeton Theological Seminary. In 1832 he sailed for Syria, arriving in Beirut in 1833 and travelling to Jerusalem the following year, from where, after his imprisonment and his wife's death, he returned to Syria later in the year, subsequently travelling widely throughout the area. The Land and the Book is divided into four parts, entitled: 'Phoenicia and Palestine'; 'Northern Palestine'; 'Sea-Coast Plains--Sharon and Philistia'; and 'Southern Palestine', and was first published in New York and London in two-volume editions in 1859. The first Nelson one-volume edition appeared in that year, and its great success ensured a stream of new editions that stretched into the early 20th century (this edition of 1896 includes a colour-printed map of 'Palestine Illustrating the New and Old Testaments. According to the Palestine Exploration Survey. By J. Bartholomew F.R.G.S.' which is not found in the earlier Nelson edition of 1887, and cannot be traced in editions prior to this).

Anonymous
(Germany: c. 1893). Quarto. 8pp. With eight full-page chromolithographed illustrations. A clever "talking" book that reproduces the characteristic sounds of animals, including a donkey's hee-haw, a sheep's baa, and mama's voice, with the pull of a string. Each creature is illustrated in color, and on the facing page is a rhyme about the animal and an arrow indicating which string to pull. The leaves of text are bound to a wooden box containing a vocal apparatus, intended to look like a book, with nine pull-strings attached to the "fore-edge." The whole is bound in red cloth with pictorial label and gilt edges. Sound holes in the top and bottom edges of the box are carved in leaf shapes. In Movable Books, Peter Haining writes that this book is "the pièce de résistance of any collection of movables, or toy-books...an item of such charm and fascination that even the most blasé, modern parents or their children can hardly fail to be captivated by it." Slight bumps to corners, minor scuffing to exterior, light foxing throughout, not affecting illustrations. An attractive example of a "talking book" with all the "speaking" parts in working order. (Gumuchian 3839; Haining, p. 136).

HUMPERDINCK, Engelbert 1854-1921
2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Frankfurt, [?]September 27, 1893. With address "Frankfurt a. M. Eschersheimer Landstr. 100" stamped in purple ink to head. In German (with translation). An important letter about the forthcoming Munich premiere of Humperdinck's opera, Hänsel und Gretel. The composer discusses casting, musical alterations, and a piano reduction of the opera with his correspondent, the prominent conductor, Hermann Levi. He also names several singers active in Munich, including Hermann Gura and Emanuela Frank. "For the part of the father, more consideration has to be given to the acting abilities rather than those of the voice; I believe, thus, that [Hermann] Gura is the right man for the job... With regards to the Hansel part, I will be glad to approve, if some parts are placed in a higher register... I was in Mainz yesterday, at Schott's, and learned that the completion of the piano reduction by the beginning of November is impossible." Slightly worn and stained; creased at folds; some words to first page slightly waterstained, not affecting legibility. Together with a vintage bust-length postcard photograph. Postmarked [?]Vienna, August, [19][?]23. Slightly worn. Hermann Levi (1839-1900) was the general music director of Munich at the time of this letter. "While working together in Bayreuth, Humperdinck and Levi had become good friends, calling one another by the nicknames 'Bonus' and 'Melchior.' In the summer of 1891, Humperdinck had come to see Parsifal with Hugo Wolf and when he met Levi, he told him of his new fairy tale opera [Hänsel and Gretel]. Levi … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Darwin investigated the function and significance of carnivorous habits in certain species of plants, discovering that their ability to trap and digest insects was an adaptation enabling them to survive even in extremely poor soil. He noted that the cells of these plants possessed a capacity for irritability and response similar to that of the nerve and muscle cells of animals" (Norman); in this study of the adaptation of insectivorous plants to poor conditions, the work makes a significant contribution to evolutionary theory.Freeman 1227; Norman 601; Waller 11489.#2102579

Walton, Izaak and Cotton, Charles; Hawkins, John, Sir (Lives of the Authors); Harting, J.E. (Editor)
London: Samuel Bagster and Sons, Limited, 1893. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Linnell, John. Two volumes, complete, number 247 of 350 copies, quarto size, 512 pp. The Tercentenary Edition of "The Compleat Angler", which since its first publication in 1653 has gone through over 400 editions: author and biographer Izaak Walton's (1593-1683) third and most abiding work. The variable fishing manual drew on many sources, both ancient and contemporary for the information presented on fish and fishing, including but not limited to Pliny, Gesner, Topsel, Bacon, George Herbert, his friend and contemporary John Donne, and Michael Drayton. The text is organised as a conversation between two (and after 1655 three) travellers, each representing a sportsman: fisherman, hunter, and falconer, and a model in the fisherman of the apostles of the New Testament. Some useful, and some perhaps now outdated details for baiting, catching and cooking a variety of fish are discussed, along with axioms from which the reader might strive to live a better life. This edition presents a score of new footnotes on the author's sources, corrections, new illustrations including portraits of the contributors, several watercolour sketches etched by Percy Thomas after Samuel Bagster; engravings after Linnell, Wale, and others were engraved for this edition by G. E. Lodge. Memoirs of Walton and Cotton are abridged from their "Lives" by Sir John Hawkins, and add additional bibliographic interest.

Edited, with a preface, by Professor John Rhys. Originally issued in 12 parts, the buyer was given the option to return the parts to Dent for binding, or to a binder of their own choice, in this case the commission was given to one of the premier binders of the day, Riviere, who have here bound in the 12 original pictorial front wrappers, and 4 of the rear wrappers, the portfolio, issued in 1927, also limited to 300 copies bound to match, with the original front wrapper bound in. It does differ from the deluxe bindings made by Dent in having plain rather than decorated vellum spines. Beardsley was only twenty years old when commissioned by Dent, in a deliberate attempt to match the quality of William Morris's Kelmscott Press, to illustrate Malory's magnum opus. He produced some 351 designs over a period of 18 months, the later portfolio containing that material which was not used in the original.

Blanche, au milieu d'une touffe de thym,Sa pierre funéraire est fraîchement posée.Que d'hommes n'ont pas eu ce suprême destin !Des larmes d'un enfant sa tombe est arrosée,Et l'Aurore pieuse y fait chaque matinUne libation de gouttes de rosée."
