Warren Chemical was founded by Herbert M. Warren and his five brothers, who were the pioneers in developing the coal tar industry in the United States. In 1847, Samuel and Cyrus Warren discovered that coal tar, a waste product of the gas lighting industry, made an ideal adhesive for producing asphalt built-up roofs. Initially the gas companies paid them to haul the waste away, which established an invaluable resource to build up a thriving business. Herbert Warren, and his brother, E. Burgess Warren founded a branch of the family business in Philadelphia in 1852 which focused on roofing and paving, as well as drawing upon the extensive oil fields in Pennsylvania for raw materials.This catalogue advertises many customers, owners of notable Gilded Age edifices, the Warren Chemical Co. had roofed. These include the Freight Houses of the West Shore Railroad Co. in Weehawken, New Jersey; The American Encaustic Tile Company in Zanesville, Ohio; the newly completed Allegheny County Court House and Jail in Pittsburgh designed by H.H. Richardson; the Thomson-Houston Electric Co. Factory in Lynn, Massachusetts built in 1888; the Victorian Romanesque Revival Union Depot in Detroit, Michigan with its massive four-clock tower; the Harmony Mills factory building in Cohoes, New York, which when it was finished in 1872 was the largest individual cotton factory in the world; Moerlein Brewing Co.

Marquand Mansion completed in 1884, built by Richard Morris Hunt.The Warren Company also roofed the Born Brewery in Columbus, Ohio, Cheney Brothers Silk Mills in Connecticut, The Pullman Building in Chicago, Louisville Tobacco Warehouse in Louisville, Kentucky, the Eastman-Kodak Factory in Rochester, The New York Tribune building, The Union League Club House and the United Bank Building, both in New York City, the Brooklyn Eagle Building, and many others.

      - Auf der Rückseite eines privaten ORIGINAL- FOTOS, das etwas unscharf Heidegger mit weißer Kappe u. Trachtenjacke zeigt. - An Edda Martin, die Frau und Mitarbeiterin seines ehemaligen Schülers, Professor Gottfried Martin. Heidegger dankt für Glückwünsche und Buchgeschenk zu seinem 64. Geburtstag (am 26. Sept.) und empfiehlt die Arbeit eines Schülers für die von Martin herausgegebenen Kant-Studien: "Frbg. [Freiburg] 4. Okt. 53. // Liebe Frau Martin! / Ihre Glückwünsche und das Geschenk haben mich sehr erfreut. Zwar besitze ich die Briefe schon (von Herrn Obermüller geschenkt, welches Exemplar ich meinem Bruder [Fritz H.] bringe, der daran das gleiche Interesse hat). Meine Frau und ich haben schöne Wochen der Arbeit und Erholung auf der Hütte verbracht. / Sagen Sie bitte Ihrem Mann, daß im Sommer ein sehr begabter Grieche, der vor einigen Semestern 1 ½ Jahre bei mir im Seminar war, mit einer sehr guten Arbeit bei Funk promoviert hat, eine Arbeit die ich für die Beihefte der neu erstehenden Kantstudien für sehr geeignet halte. Falls die Einreichung möglich sein sollte, bitte ich um kurze Nachricht nach Meßkirch (Kreis Stockach) wo ich in der nächsten Zeit arbeite. / Mit frischen [? nur dieses Wort ist ein wenig verwischt] Grüßen von uns für Sie beide / Ihr Ma Heidegger" - // - Fritz Heidegger (1894-1980) galt seinerzeit als der beste Kenner der Schriften seines fünf Jahre älteren Bruders. - "Meine Frau": Elfride Heidegger, geb. Petri (1893-1992). - Die "Hütte" ist die berühmte, 1922 erbaute Hütte in Todtnauberg (Südschwarzwald). - Der Baden-Württembergische Landkreis Stockach wurde 1973 aufgelöst. Meßkirch, die Heimatstadt Heideggers liegt heute im Landkreis Sigmaringen. - // - Gottfried Martin (1901-1972) studierte zunächst Chemie, Physik und Mathematik und erst später Philosophie. Nach zwischenzeitlicher Arbeit in der Industrie promovierte er 1934 bei Heidegger in Freiburg mit dem Thema "Arithmetik und Kombinatorik bei Kant". Seine Habilitationsschrift über Wilhelm von Ockham wurde u. a. von dem Kölner Philosophieprofessor Artur Schneider, welcher wiederum 1913 in Freiburg Heideggers Doktorvater gewesen war, positiv beurteilt. Gottfried Martin lehrte ab 1943 an den Universitäten Jena und Köln. Zur Zeit unserer Karte (1953 bis 1958) war er Professor an der Universität Mainz und gab ebenfalls ab 1953 gab er die Kant-Studien heraus, die er mit Paul Menzer wieder begründet hatte. 1969 wurde er Erster Vorsitzender der Kant-Gesellschaft.

        THE BANDITTI OF THE PLAINS OR THE CATTLEMEN'S INVASION OF WYOMING IN 1892 (THE CROWNING INFAMY OF THE AGES )

      [Denver, 1894. Original black cloth. Slight fraying and wear at extremities, inner front hinge cracked. Neat book label and ownership signature on endsheets. Else very good. In a cloth slipcase, leather label. One of the most famous books on the cattle industry, growing out of the Johnson County War in Wyoming in 1892, which pitted the large, established members of the Wyoming Stockgrowers Association against the smaller cattlemen and squatters on the range. In the course of the bloody conflict Mercer, editor of the NORTHWESTERN LIVESTOCK GROWER, published in Cheyenne, took the side of the small growers and produced this vitriolic work. The book is said to have been suppressed, and may have been to a certain extent, but a fair number of copies exist today, although it certainly remains rare. The book is often listed as being printed in Cheyenne, but Mercer's children maintain that it was printed in Denver, where Adams agrees it was bound. Its importance is great, chronicling one of the last major upheavals of frontier violence in the wars for the open range against fencing. It has since appeared in many later editions.

        SOUTH AFRICAN GOLD MINING REPORTS, PROSPECTUSES, etc., INCLUDING FOLDING PLATES AND MAPS

      (Johannesburg & London), (1894-1914). Twenty-one annual and monthly reports, a circular to shareholders, and articles of association, for several different gold mining companies operating in South Africa at the turn of the century. The group, probably all belonging to Christopher R. Corning, have been hole punched at the left margin, and bound together with cord. Corning's signature appears at the heads of some of the reports, as does a stamp of one of the associations he belonged to, the American Institute of Mining Engineers.

(8) pp. Buff paperwraps (rear wrapper lacking). Plan showing the property (mentioned at end of text) not present. Gold was discovered on the Witwatersrand in the Transvaal region of South Africa in 1886, and a boom in mining began. By 1899, South Africa was producing nearly a third of all the world's gold ore. A report on South African Mines, Vol. X, done in 1896 discusses the value of the mining operations in the Transvaal: "Having discussed the potentiality of the Transvaal as a gold contributor, the next question that naturally arises is as to the commercial success or otherwise of the many gold mining companies in existence in the Transvaal -- more particularly those of the Witwatersrand goldfields -- in relation to the capital invested and their earning capacity. The capitalized value of the Witwatersrand gold mines has increased in a phenomenal degree within the last twelve months, 105 companies, having an issued capital of about 20,000,000 pounds, represented on July 19, 1894, a value of 25,500,000 pounds ...[and] on July 19, 1895, 71,000,000 pounds.... One hundred and thirty of the principal producing and working (including a few finance) companies, having an issued capital of about 25,500,000 pounds, represented at the end of July, 1895, a total value of nearly 103,000,000 pounds... [including] New Primrose... New Rietfontein [etc.]." The gold rush also led to the founding of the city of Johannesburg. Christopher R. Corning was an American mining engineer and geologist. He received his education in Zurich, Freiberg, and Heidelberg, graduating in 1886 with degrees in chemistry, mineralogy, and petrography. Before returning to the United States, Corning traveled widely in Europe, observing mines and geology in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, and England. His work in the United States included the Duluth South Shore and Atlantic Railway, and the Bunker Hill & Sullivan mines in Idaho. With E.E. Olcott and Prof. Robert Peele of Columbia University, he formed a mining engineers consulting firm in 1897. He also worked in Mexico and South America. [see his brief biography in the online records of the Global Minings and Minerals Library]. Corning translated, along with Robert Peele, J. Riemer's book "Shaft Sinking under Difficult Conditions." Corning and Olcott had offices on Wall Street, in New York City, and continued to operate their consulting business after Peele returned to full-time teaching. Presumably, he used these reports to evaluate the investment potential of the South African mines. No listings found on OCLC for these reports.

        Les nouvelles idées sur la structure du Système Nerveux chez l'homme et chez les vertés

      Reinwald, Paris 1894 - 8vo. Original issue in wrappers bound in cloth binding. Collation: xvi, 200 [3] pp. with 49 illustrations in text from the author's own drawings. This is a translation of the Spanish edition by L. Azoulay. The text and figures are very good. This is a major work by Ramon y Cajal which " sets out the cytological and histological foundations of modern neurology. His descriptions of the cerebral cortex are still the most authorative." (G&M 1293.1 ). The present work is a greatly expanded text from the earlier Spanish and French editions of Ramon y Cajal's research. Eimas notes that this work "contains forty-nine illustrations of cells and tissue strata as well as much detail on handling, staining and interpretation of studies of prepared specimens. The preface is by Mathias Marie Duval (1844-1907) who discovered the technique of fixation of tissue in collodion blocks for sectioning and microscopic study." Ramón y Cajal is recognized as one of the great histologists of all time, particularly for his fundamental studies on the cellular structure of the nervous system. He was born in Petilla de Aragon, a small village in the Spanish Pyrenees. Ramón y Cajal studied medicine at Zaragoza, where he received his degree in 1873. After service in the Spanish Army in Cuba, he obtained a doctor's degree from Madrid and in 1877 was appointed professor of anatomy at Zaragoza. His career was interrupted for a time because of pulmonary tuberculosis, after which he served as professor of anatomy at Valencia, professor of histology at Barcelona, and in 1892 he assumed the chair of histology and pathological anatomy at Madrid. Together with Golgi, Ramón y Cajal was awarded the Nobel prize in 1906 for their many contributions into man's understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system. Making his own improvements on Golgi's stain techniques, Ramón y Cajal discovered cells and structures in the nervous system that had never before been seen. He chronicled the life history, structure, and working mechanism of the neuron and, in so doing, created an histological approach to the study of the central nervous system. His work and ideas were expressed in over two hundred papers and close to fifteen books. (Heirs, 2144) (Garrison-Morison, 1293.1 -Spanish edition; Heirs of Hipocrates, 2144; Waller 7735).

        Forest and Stream

      1894. GRINNELL, George Bird. Forest and Stream. With contributions by Theodore Gordon, Horace Kephart, Edward S. Curtis, Emerson Hough, Theodore Roosevelt and others. Consecutive run of the issues from January 1894 through December 1922 (lacking one issue, February 1920). Illustrated throughout including photographs and illustrated ads. 49 volumes, bound in a mix of tan library cloth over blue boards and matching modern tan cloth, one series of 11 loose issues from 1920 preserved in a matching cloth box. New York: Forest and Stream Publishing Company, [1894-1922]. |~||~||~||~| A superb set of 49 volumes of this key publication in the history of the conservation movement in America. Forest and Stream began life in 1873 and continued publication until 1930. From 1876 to 1911 the magazine was edited by George Bird Grinnell, a major figure in the movement to preserve wildlife in the American West. Among many things, he wrote articles to help spread the awareness of the need to protect the American buffalo. Contributors form a who's who of the American conservation movement from Theodore Roosevelt, Horace Kephart, Edward S. Curtis, Emerson Hough to Theodore Gordon. In addition the magazine is an invaluable source for information on fishing and hunting in America at the turn of the century. Indeed it is a vast treasure trove of information, both pictorial and textual. Almost all surviving copies are in institutions, and sets of any size are extremely rare in the market place. The last time a substantial run appeared in ABPC was in 1990, when a set from 1873 to 1900 was sold.

Attraktive grossformatige Uniformdarstellungen unterschiedlicher Ränge und Truppengattungen mit zahlreichen schönen Pferdedarstellungen. Besonders dekorative Offiziersporträts zu Pferd oder im Gelände (z.B. Kdt. Armeecorps, Generalstabsoffizier d. Eisenbahnabteilung, Oberstbrigadier, Dragoner-Hauptmann, Hptm. d.

Die bunten Uniformen von Mannschaft und Offizieren, letztmals festgelegt in der Ordonnanz von 1898, wurden durch die feldgraue Kleidung der Ordonnanzen von 1914/1915 und 1917 ersetzt. Es ist zugleich die letzte der drucktechnisch und künstlerisch anspruchsvollen, grossformatigen dokumentarischen Serien zur Schweizer Armee nach denjenigen von H. A. Eckert, E. Wolf und Ch. Perron. Estoppeys naturgetreue, technisch gekonnt in Szene gesetzten Tafeln wurden und werden in der Fachliteratur immer wieder reproduziert. Vgl. z.B. E.-M. G.

Zu den Ordonnanzen s. auch J. Burlet, Geschichte der eidgenössischen Militäruniformen, 1992. ? Diese Uniformen standen für die ?neue? schweizerische Armee des Bundesstaates: ?Als sich schon bei der Grenzbesetzung [anlässlich des Deutsch-Französischen Krieges] im Juli 1870 unsere mangelhafte Kriegsvorbereitung zeigte, und im Februar 1871 die französische Ostarmee [?Bourbaki-Armee?] unser Land betrat, [.] da sahen die Eidgenossen ein, [.] wie nötig es sei, eine Armee zu besitzen, die durch ihre Kriegstüchtigkeit allein die Garantie bieten kann, dass kein Feind den Boden unserer Heimat betritt. So entstand die Militärorganisation [MO] von 1874. Sie brachte den Übergang zum Bundesheer.? (K. Egli, Heereskunde, 1912, p. 41). Die MO 1874 ersetzte diejenige von 1850 und wurde ihrerseits überholt durch diejenige von 1907 und die Truppenordnung (TO) 1911 (s. H.

      1894. "Everything to My Wife" Sadler, Walter Dendy, After. James Dobie, Engraver. The New Will: "Everything to My Wife Absolutely." London, Paris & New York: Rafael Tuck & Sons Ltd, [c. 1894]. Attractively glazed and double-matted 19" x 16" hand-colored etching in handsome 29" x 26" wooden frame, small brass plaque to center of bottom. Light rubbing to frame, some toning to margins and mat, image vivid. $1,500. * This piece depicts a presumably newlywed couple reviewing the terms of the husband's will with a barrister in his office. The caption reads "The New Will (Everything to My Wife Absolutely." This is an ambiguous scene. The husband, who appears somewhat smug, is significantly older than the wife, who looks rather sad. The barrister appears skeptical. Does the bride regret her choice to marry for money? Was she compelled to enter this union? Is the husband a dying man?

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Paris, 7. V. 1894. - 4 SS. (Doppelblatt, im Falz durchgerissen). 8vo. An einen unbekannten Adressaten, der ihn nach seinen "inneren Beziehungen zur Musik" befragt hatte: "Hochgeehrter Herr, Wenn ich Ihre Frage nach meinen inneren Beziehungen zur Musik erschöpfend beantworten wollte, müßte ich Ihnen eigentlich eine bis ins Einzelne gehende Geschichte meines Lebens und Selbstcharakteristik liefern, da die Musik thatsächlich mit meinem ganzen geistigen Werden und Sein auf das Innigste verflochten ist. Ich beschränke mich darauf, Ihnen zu sagen, daß das Schöne mir zuerst in musikalischer Gestalt entgegengetreten ist. Mein erstes Gedicht schrieb ich, zwölf Jahre alt, nachdem ich die Mondschein-Sonate gehört hatte, die man mir, auf meine ungestüme Bitte, dreimal hintereinander hatte vorspielen müssen. Als ich, fünfzehn Jahre alt, Mozarts 'Don Juan' zum erstenmal hörte, floh der Schlaf mich drei Nächte lang und ich glaubte fortwährend die Orchesterbegleitung zum Auftreten der Statue des Kommandeurs zu hören. Ich glaube nicht, daß ich jemals eine Aufführung der Neunten Symphonie versäumt habe, wenn sie an meinem Wohnort stattfand; und doch fürchte ich sie eigentlich, denn sie wühlt mich in allen Tiefen so furchtbar auf, daß ich tagelang nicht zur Ruhe komme; so wirkt sie noch heute auf mich, obschon ich jeden Takt von ihr auswendig kann. Ich führe ein Leben des Kampfes und erfahre viel Bitteres und Schmerzliches. Es gibt aber die Empörung, den Zorn, die Kränkung nicht, die nicht sofort verschwänden, wenn mir meine Schwester ein Lied von Schumann, etwa 'Ich grolle nicht' oder 'Aus meinen Thränen sprießen' singt. Alle Gemeinheit der Menschen ist dann vergessen, mein eigenes Ich löst sich in Liebe und Wollaut [!] und mir ist, als wäre ich auf irgend einem Stern, himmelweit von allen Leidenschaften und Interessen, die sonst das Gewebe meines Daseins bilden. Aus der Musik quellen mir unvergleichliche Tröstungen und Anregungen. Der Drang, den wogenden, unbestimmten Emotionen, welche die Musik in mir wachruft, eine feste Form zu geben, hat oft genug meinem Schaffen die Richtung gewiesen. Um nur ein Beispiel anzuführen: mein Roman 'Die Krankheit des Jahrhunderts' ist wesentlich aus der Stimmung hervorgegangen, in die mich einmal das unter eigenthümlichen Umständen gehörte Lied 'Freut euch des Lebens' versetzt hat. Um meine Anschauungen kurz zusammenzufassen: ich würde es, trotz meiner mannigfachen anderen geistigen Interessen, für die erschreckendste Verarmung meines Lebens halten, wenn ich auf Musik verzichten müßte. Glauben Sie, hochgeehrter Herr, an die vorzügliche Hochachtung Ihres ergebensten Dr. M. Nordau". - Nordau war seit 1892 Mitstreiter Herzls; seit 1880 wohnte er als praktischer Armenarzt und Gynäkologe in Paris. 1897 Organisator des Basler ersten Zionistenkongresses, war er Hauptautor des sog.

        The Parasite & Watter's Mau

      A. Constable, Westminster 1894 - The Acme Library First Editions of this pair of rare books.Published by A. Constable, Westminster 1894 and 1895. The Parasite: Original blue cloth boards with bright gilt lettering and dragon illustration on the front cover. Covers worn on the spine which is darkened. Corners a little bumped but good condition for it’s age. Internally very clean and bindings tight. A related newspaper article attached to front paste down which has marked the free page. Pencil signature on half title page. Gilt on top edges and uncut for the other page edges. 18 x 10cm. The short novel offers a different side to the Sherlock Holme writings of Doyle and reveals his fascination with spiritualism and the paranormal. The Parasite relays the tale of a physiologist, Gilroy who is a non- believer of paranormal, and his Professor friend who introduces him to a “skilled” psychic, Miss Penclosa. Gilroy falls under her powers: “This woman, by her own explanation, can dominate my nervous organism. She can project herself into my body and take command of it. She has a parasite soul; yes, she is a parasite, a monstrous parasite. She creeps into my frame as the hermit crab does into the whelk’s shell. I am powerless! What can I do?”. A lovely copy of this horror tale. The Watter’s Mou: Hardback bound in slightly marked blue cloth with bright gilt decorations to front board, spine and upper page edges. Wear to edges, corners and spine with missing top edge of spine. Tear on front free page. Faded owners signature to front paste down. Clean and crisp age toned pages with some foxing on last end pages. Size 12mo – over 6 3/4″-7 3/4″ tall. The Watter’s Mou portrays a thrilling romantic tale set along the Scottish coast and is quite different from Bram Stoker’s famous character of Dracula. The publishing house of Archibald Constable & Co. launched a series of novellas by reputable authors under the name of The Acme Library in 1984. The Parasite by Arthur Conan Doyle was the first production followed by The Watter’s Mou by Bram Stoker. The publication of the novellas was ill fated and the production run was short making these editions scarce to find. Both novellas provided an opportunity to see a different side to the author’s usual writings. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        EIN FERIEN-AUSFLUG UM DIE ERDE. SEINEN LIEBEN WERWANDTEN UND FREUNDEN

      Leipzig, 1894. 12mo. Original brown cloth, front board and spine stamped in gilt. Light wear at corners and spine ends. Very clean internally. Near fine. Inscribed by the author on the page facing his portrait. A rare photographically illustrated account of a trip around the world by a German traveller. Ritzhaupt began in Leipzig and travelled west across the Atlantic, arriving in New York in the late summer of 1893. He records his impressions of and travels through New York City and upstate (including Niagara Falls and Saratoga), Ontario, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago (where the World's Fair was ongoing), Minnesota, Yellowstone National Park, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Hawaii. He then went to Asia, visiting Japan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Ceylon. Japan is extensively described, as is India (the subject of three photographs). From there Ritzhaupt travelled to Aden, through the Suez Canal, and back to Germany. Among the photographs illustrating his travels are images of Calcutta, the Ganges, and Bombay in India, Ceylon, Japan, Hong Kong, Hawaii, and the Mammoth Hot Springs at Yellowstone. The maps show the course of Ritzhaupt's journey. Undoubtedly printed in a small edition for private distribution. OCLC locates only two copies, at the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Not in Forbes' bibliography of Hawaii, nor in Cowan or Flake. Rare and desirable.

        THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE FRONTIER IN AMERICAN HISTORY. [Contained in:] PROCEEDINGS OF THE STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF WISCONSIN AT ITS FORTY-FIRST ANNUAL MEETING HELD DECEMBER 14, 1893

      Madison, Wi., 1894. Original printed wrappers, removed from a larger volume, spine perished. Small paper repair to top edge of the titlepage near the gutter, light toning. Very good. In a half morocco box. The very rare first printing of Turner's epochal thesis, as it was originally published in the PROCEEDINGS of the Wisconsin Historical Society for 1893. Turner's thesis was that the open frontier played a tremendous role in shaping American character and culture, and that the growth of the United States to its natural western borders, marking the closing of the frontier, would have equally significant consequences on the national identity. Perhaps the most influential work of American historiography, it moved Turner immediately into the first rank of American commentators. To this cataloguer's mind the impact of Turner's thesis on the field of American history was not unlike that of Einstein's theory of relativity on the field of physics - all subsequent historians would have to deal with the implications of Turner's ideas. A separate offprint of Turner's essay was issued by the Wisconsin Historical Society later in 1894, and it occasionally appears on the market. This, however, is the first copy of the true first printing of the Turner thesis that we have encountered.
