        THE WOMAN'S BOOK; DEALING PRACTICALLY WITH THE MODERN CONDITIONS OF HOME-LIFE, SELF-SUPPORT, EDUCATION, OPPORTUNITIES, AND EVERY-DAY PROBLEMS

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1894 - Two volumes, large octavo, (25cm x 17cm), xii, (4), 400; xii, 397 pages. This detailed pair of volumes called on experts in many fields to include 18 chapters, which include William Stoddard on Women in Their Business Affairs, Lillian Betts on the Principles of Housekeeping, Constance Cary Harrison on Society and Social Usages, P.G. Hubert on Occupations for Women, Kate Douglas Wiggin on the Training of children, Elizabeth Bisland, who raced Nellie Bly around the world for their publications post-Jules Verne, Thomas Wentworth Higginson on Books and reading, Samuel Parsons Jr. on the Home Grounds, and Helen Churchill Candee on House Building. There are 400 illustrations, including a dozen color chromolithographs, plus myriad drawings and photographs in black and white. The books are in extremely good condition. Most of the color plates retain their laid-in tissue guards, which have left left acidic stains on facing pages, and there are a few sprinkles of foxing on the endpapers, and a narrow paper split at the gutter margin threads on page 161. Otherwise,there is not a mark or dog-ear or stain in the pair of books, which is one of the most interesting Victorian compendiums ever produced. A fine set, bound in deep blue-green cloth stamped silver. The running text that composes part of the border on the front cover reads: "The Home / Social Life/ The Garden / Dress / Education / Books and Reading / House Building / Furnishing / Rugs / Hygiene / Housekeeping / Children / China / Occupations / Outside Opportunities / Business Affairs." In a brief note, the publisher comments: "The title of this work accurately describes its purpose. The Plan has included the treatment of all the larger subjects which to-day interest and concern women (though many of the topics treated are of equal interest to all readers); and it is hoped that the work will become a thoroughly home book, to be read, consulted, and relied upon in thousands of households." Less that a dozen American libraries own actual printed copies -- most of the library holdings are electronic. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Monograph of the Land and Freshwater Mollusca of the British Isles, in 4 volumes (1894-1924), complete

      Leeds: Taylor Brothers, 1894-1924. First edition.. The endpapers of the first three volumes show some foxing and occasional browning, the text and plates of all volumes, which were printed on a much higher quality paper, are bright and clean, the final page of Part 24 has an old stain to internal gutter and rear wrapper (this occurred before the binding was put on); overall, a tight and clean set in very good condition.. Pp. vi, 1-454; pp. xx, 1-312; pp. vii, (i), 1-592, (2, ads); pp. 1-160; 70 full page color plates of molluscs (from color paintings) and color distribution maps, 1823 text-figures (halftones, line-drawings and black-and-white photographs). Publisher's original olive green cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and front cover (on volumes 1-3) and with matching olive green cloth and gilt-lettering on the fourth volume, entitled here as the Supplement (the original printed gray wrappers are bound in at the rear for Parts, 22, 23 and 24 only), lg 8vo (10 x 6.25 inches). This work is complete in 24 parts published separately by subscription. The first 21 parts were published at regular intervals from 1894 to 1914. Parts 22 and 23 were published in 1916 and 1917 respectively. The inside front wrapper of Part 23 has a notice to subscribers: "we regret to announce that the 'Monograph' will be suspended until the conclusion of the War, as the difficulties of its production is intensified by the severity of military requisitions of men and material." Part 24 was published in 1921, after the war ended. A final 'note to our subscribers' on the Part 24 wrappers informs the subscribers of increasing expenses involved in the publication of 'Monograph.' No additional parts were ever published. A complete list of subscribers appears on pages 494-498 of Part 21 in volume 3; this list of subscribers continues on the on the inside front wrapper of Parts 22-23 and the rear wrapper of Part 24. An entire page of the gray wrappers for Part 22, 23 and 24 provides opinions from 'eminent scientists' as to the value and usefulness of the 'Monograph.' Oddly, most of these scientists assumed the series would continue. The set has had a single owner; there is a small signature of G. Walson on the front endpaper of each volume and on the front wrapper of the final three parts. W. Walson worked in the late 19th century on mollusks discovered on the Challenger Expedition.

        Pride and Prejudice.

      London: George Allen,, 1894. With a Preface by George Saintsbury and illustrations by Hugh Thomson. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, spine and front board gilt-blocked with all-over peacock design incorporating title, plain endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With the original dust jacket printed in dark blue on pale blue paper. Frontispiece, with tissue-guard, and illustrations in the text, some as head- or tailpieces, all by Hugh Thomson. Pencilled ownership inscription of Chas. E. Stevens dated December 1894 to front free endpaper. Gilt just beginning to darken at edges, short line of surface wear adjacent to rear joint, still a fine copy in the very good jacket that is chipped at the head of the browned spine, a couple of short closed tears at head and tail of panels, and the flaps a touch browned where exposed. First illustrated edition, complete with the original printed dust jacket, exceedingly rare thus. We can trace no other copy retaining the dust jacket having appeared in commerce. The trade edition was issued in two formats: with top edge gilt, others untrimmed, as here, or with all edges trimmed and gilt in a slightly smaller case. The jacket is a little short for this, the taller of the two cases, indicating that only one jacket was printed for both formats. The front panel of the jacket does not echo the famous peacock design of the underlying front board, instead reproducing the "Hearing herself called" illustration from page 243. The rear panel advertises the existing titles in George Allen's Illustrated Gift Books series, Pride and Prejudice at the head, including the new edition of Ruskin's The Harbours of England which in the event was delayed until April 1895. This was the first edition of Pride and Prejudice to feature illustrations accompanying the text; Bentley's 1833 edition and subsequent printings had featured only a frontispiece. Thomson's "light touch and feeling for period manners provide a charming and accessible gloss to the author's work" (ODNB).

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1894 - 1894 Wisden, Rebound with Covers, Signed by Jack Hobbs.

      1894. Hi, This lot is an 1894 Rebound Wisden with Original Covers - Signed by Jack Hobbs. It is in Good Condition. ""To my old friend Jack Mears, with all good wishes from Jack Hobbs"" it states on the first page and not the usual j.b.hobbs autograph so a nice formal piece of prose in this 1894. The binding is a bit tatty and the covers are dark, odd dog ear inside but clean pages and great photoplate but topped off by the Hobbs note.

        Schmerzlose Operationen: Oertliche Betäubung mit indifferenten Flüssigkeiten. Psychophysik des natürlichen und künstlichen Schlafes.

      Berlin, Julius Springer, 1894, X, 256 pp., 32 Abb., Halbledereinband der Zeit feines Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe dieses epochemachenden Werkes über die Entwicklung der Infiltrationsanästhesie, die Schleich auf dem Deutschen Chirurgenkongreß 1894 praktisch demonstriert hatte. Als Schleich seine Erfahrungen mit der Infiltrationsanästhesie vor dem Chirurgenkongreß in Berlin 1892 vortrug, begegnete er großer Skepsis. Im Kongreßbericht ist folgende Einzelheit der Diskussion festgehalten worden: Schleich schloß sein Referat folgendermaßen: Wer heute noch eine Chloroformnarkose macht, ohne zuvor die vom Vortragenden emfohlende Methode versucht habe, lädt vom wissenschaftlichen, moralischen und strafrechtlichen Gesichtspunkte aus schwere Verantwortung auf sich. Herr von Bardeleben (als Präsident) fordert zur Abstimmung darüber auf, ob jemand aus der Gesellschaft von der Wahrheit der Ausführung des Vortragenden überzeugt ist. Es hebt keiner die Hand". Jahre später mußte der größte Chirurg jener Zeiten, Ernst von Bergmann, nachdem auch die Bestätigung der Lokalanästhesie aus Amerika kam, eingestehen: "Schleichs Anästhesie ist die erste deutsche chirurgische Großtat überhaupt. Wir haben ihr außer der Narkose und dem Lister nichts Ebenbürtiges entgegenzustellen. Schleichs Unterdrückung ist ein Schandfleck für die Chirurgie." Silló-Seidl, Ärzte ohne Nobelpreis, 33 ff. Carl Ludwig Schleich (1869-1822), Sohn eines bekannten Stetiner Ophthalmologen, studierte Medizin in Zürich, Greifswald und Berlin, hatte als Student seinen künstlerischen Neigungen, die sein Leben ebenso wie die Medizin beherrschten, ausgelebt. Nach Assistentenjahren in Greifswald ließ er sich 1889 in Berlin als Besitzer einer Privatklinik nieder. 1900 war er für kurze Zeit Leiter des Krankenhauses Teltow in Lichterfelde. Schleich fand vielseitige Anerkennung nicht nur als Arzt, sondern auch als Essayist, als Erzähler und als Komponist."

        [Travel Journal]: Portugal and Spain October 1872; Tangier and Norway 1894

      Portugal, Spain, Norway, Tangier, 1894. Good. Octavo. Half leather with cloth boards and paper label on the front board. Spine and corner leather worn away or eroding with some spotting on the boards thus good only with detached front board. A travel journal composed by Walter C. Pepys while visiting Portugal, Spain, France, and Norway during different years of his life with roughly half of the journal used on both sides of 58 leaves (or approximately 116 pages) comprised of approximately 20,000 words. Pepys was a practicing barrister and had gained the rank of Lieutenant in the service of the 60th Rifles, an infantry rifle regiment of the British Army.The diary begins with his departure by steam boat to Oporto, Portugal in 1872. He describes the women on his first day there, "I had a good opportunity for seeing the people - The women are remarkably fine - many handsome and carry licensure loads on their heads- they dress in dark colours but usually have a bright cotton kerchief on the shoulder or head. Their love for jewelry evidently strong." He makes small remarks like this often in regards to the people he sees. On Halloween in Lisbon, he describes the King, "a fine house well filled in honor of the King's Birthday - he and wife were present - he looks leery and has that reputation." And again while in Boulogne, France he describes the people around him, "crowded with snobs from 'Old England' uninviting, uncomfortable and very dear." However even though he is quick to judge the people he meets he describes the locations and events with admiration. In Seville he describes their Christmas ceremony, "at dusk I saw a most curious ceremony at the Cathedral- 10 boys dancing before the high altar to the strain of a string band - they were dressed in white feathered cocked hats... This ceremony was unique to Seville and lasted the octave of the feast of the Immaculate Conception... The Vatican once attempted to abolish it." He also describes some of the other churches he visits, "the Grand Cathedral - lately restored is very fine - somewhat like Canterbury... Magnificent rose windows and one good one in the south aisle by Jean Cousin." During his time in Malaga, Spain he writes about the rioting: "Shutter up - house doors closed and armed bands of ruffians parading about shouting 'Viva La Republica!' Most of them armed were procured... In accomplish which many shots were fired and several killed and wounded." This was due to the First Spanish Republic political regime that existed from 1873 until 1874, made up of radicals, republicans, and democrats calling for a socialist revolution. In the next few entries he writes about the town returning to normal except for the influx of troops from Granada. Though he does not write as often of events as he did previously, he does write, "I hope someday again to see her in a more settled state than this at present," on the day he leaves to return home. His trip to Norway in July of 1894 is much calmer. Most of the entries begin with waking up and the weather that accompanies him while traveling; "a terrific thunderstorm, lightning magnificent - seeming to strike in balls of tine." He describes Norway as, "heavily timbered with more trepidant plots of cultivation." However, unlike his trips in 1872 and 1873 he is more morose. He writes, "The evenings are closing in- but I wrote up my funeral tonight by twilight." The rest of the entries from Norway never mention this topic again but there is still a looming discontent in them. Pepys married in 1874 and had five children before passing away in 1914 at the age of 73. An interesting, occasionally eventful, and sometimes introspective look back on the various journeys throughout a man's life.

Signed, "A very charming personal account by a southern Gentleman of the "old school". I knew many like him sixty years ago. But alas now I might search our whole country over, in vain, for another like him. We have become a nation of hustling and the real gentlemen don't count.

      - An interesting autograph letter from the important composer, thanking a friend for his positive review of "L'après-midi d'un Faune" and remarking on the rarity of friendly relations between musicians. 1 p. on Debussy's Parisian letterhead, dated "Thursday" in Debussy's hand; another hand has dated at the foot: December 22, 1894. Translated from the French, in part: "Many thanks for the nice article dedicated to the prelude to 'L'après-midi d'un Faune,' and also for the artistic collegiality with which you approach it! This is something so rare among musicians, especially among those who have already "arrived"; they immediately become like dogs defending a bone they have laboriously acquired! One must praise those who, like you, recognizing another art from their own, are incidentally not the loudest voices." 14 x 9.5 cm. Fine.
