        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.

(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.

OBrosch.-Titel mit Fähnrich des Bataillon 28 in Farblithographie. ? 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. Feldartillerie, Geniehauptmann, Arzt und Apotheker, Justizoffizier [Militärjustiz / Officier judiciaire in Schlossaufgang], Feldprediger, Stabssekretär), aber auch eindrückliche Mannschaftsdarstellungen in Porträt und/oder Aktion (z.B. Trompeter: Schützen-, Batterie- und Guidentrompeter, Tambour, Kavalleriewachtmeister, Dragoner, Positionsartillerie, Gebirgsartillerie-Kanonier, Sanitätssoldat, Verwaltungssoldat vor Feldbäckerei, Feldpost, Radfahrer, Landsturmsoldat in städtischer Kulisse). ?

Lochmann (Le Génie), Col. Dr. Ziegler (Les Troupes Sanitaires), Col.

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.

        The New Will: "Everything to My Wife Absolutely"

      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. Basler Programms und eine der führenden Gestalten der frühen zionistischen Bewegung. - In lila Tinte; kleine Randeinrisse.

        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.

      - Lithographie mit blauer Tonplatte, 1894, auf chamoisfarbenem Papier mit Wasserzeichen: A G Fabriano, signiert. 48,3:28,8 cm. Literatur: Beringer, Griffelkunst 45. Im Rand mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren. Thoma begann nach Lehren als Lithograph und Anstreicher in Basel sowie als Uhrenschildmaler in Furtwangen, die er nicht beendete, autodidaktische Mal- und Zeichenstudien. 1859 studierte er an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie bei Ludwig Des Coudres (1820-1878) und Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). 1868 reiste er nach Aufenthalten in Basel und Düsseldorf mit Otto Scholderer (1834-1902) nach Paris. 1870-1877 lebte er in München, wo er mit dem Leibl-Kreis verkehrte. Sein erster Aufenthalt in Italien war 1874, ein zweiter 1880. 1876 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main. Nach sehr zögerlich einsetzendem Erfolg – seinen ersten größeren Auftrag hatte er 1882, 1890 seine erste erfolgreiche Sonderausstellung in München – führte seine steigende Bekanntheit 1898 zur Professur an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie und 1899 zum Direktorat der dortigen Kunsthalle.

Specielle Pathologie und Therapie, hsgg. von Hermann Nothnagel unter Mitwirkung von E. [Emanuel] Aufrecht et al. Bd. IX, III. Teil (9, 3). - ?Der Name ?Infantile Cerebrallähmung?, welcher dieser Abhandlung voransteht, ist ein nomen proprium. Er bezeichnet nicht schlechtweg, was die ihn zusammensetzenden Worte bedeuten: Lähmung im Kindesalter aus cerebraler Ursache (in Folge von Gehirnerkrankung), sondern er ist längst auch auf Krankheitszustände übertragen worden, in welchen die Lähmung zurücktritt gegen oder ersetzt wird durch Muskelstarre und spontane Muskelunruhe; ja ich werde befürworten müssen, dass diese Bezeichnung auch an Fälle vergeben werde, in denen die Lähmung völlig ausbleibt und nur periodisch wiederkehrende Krampfanfälle (Epilepsie) das Krankheitsbild constituiren. [.] Ich habe diese Abschweifungen über das nosographische System eingeschaltet, um darnach von dem Terminus ?Infantile Cerebrallähmung? auszusagen, er stehe auf der Stufe eines nur klinisch fundirten Krankheitsbildes. Er deckt sich, wie die folgenden Blätter zeigen werden, weder mit einer pathologisch-anatomischen noch mit einer ätiologischen Einheit. Es ist darum wahrscheinlich, dass er auch klinisch nur den Werth einer vorläufigen Einheit beanspruchen darf, und dass es bald gelingen wird, diese aufzulösen und durch eine gewisse Anzahl von besser cohärenten, anatomisch und vielleicht auch ätiologisch gut determinirten Krankheitsbildern zu ersetzen. Das heute vorliegende Material gestattet solche Leistung noch nicht; die rein klinische Zusammenfassung desselben, welche der Name ?Infantile Cerebrallähmung? vertreten soll, erscheint zunächst durch ihre Unentbehrlichkeit für wissenschaftliche Darstellung und ärztliche Diagnostik gerechtfertigt.? (Freud, p. 1 u. p. 5). - ?Die infantile Cerebralparese lässt sich nach folgenden Kriterien einteilen: Ort der Schädigung (Grosshirn, Stammhirn, Kleinhirn) / Zeitpunkt der Schädigung (vor, während, nach der Geburt) / Ursache der Schädigung / Klinische Symptome: Spastik, Athetose (unkontrollierte, langsame Bewegungen), Ataxie (z.B. Koordinations- und Gleichgewichtsstörungen) / Topographie (betroffene Körperregionen). Für dieses Störungsmuster gibt es eine Reihe von synonymen Bezeichnungen. Veraltete Begriffe sind: Cerebrale Kinderlähmung (bereits 1897 von Sigmund Freud beschrieben) oder ?Little?sche Krankheit?, nach dem Orthopäden William John Little genannt.?

Zuträge zur Sammlung exotischer Schmetterlinge bestehend in Bekundigung einzelner Fliegmuster neuer oder rarer nichteuropäischer Gattungen. Nouvelle édition fac-simile française. Introduction et index systématique et alphabétique par W.F. Kirby. Bruxelles, V. Verteneuil & L. Desmet, 1908-1912. 1 volume bound in 2. Large-4to (315 x 238mm) pp. (4), ii, 100, (2), with 172 hand-coloured lithographed plates. Later brown cloth, spines with gilt lettering Rare complete set of this beautifully handcoloured new edition of one of the finest and most important works on exotic butterflies, which was edited in a very limited edition. It comprises Hübner's complete works on exotic butterflies, the 'Sammlung exotischer Schmetterlinge' published from 1806-24 and his 'Zuträge zur Sammlung exotischer Schmetterlinge' published from 1818-37, of which the last part was published by Geyer. Both these two original works are extremely rare and we have not offered copies since many decades. The new edition of these works on exotic butterflies books by Wystman and Kirby is superbly produced. The plates are printed on thick, wove paper and exquisitely handcoloured. Also this edition is a great rarity and the number of copies produced minute. Wystman published 3 issues, one with German text, one with English text and one with French text. Probably no more than 50 copies were published. Mr. Kirby says "In writing letter press to Hübner's 'Sammlung exotischer Schmetterlinge', I have paid special attention to the correct identification of the species figured, and in one or two cases I have found it necessary to propose new names. I have not given descriptions, but sufficient synonymy and explanations to bring Hübner's plates into range with later publication" (Entomological Society News 1911). "La reproduction des planches sur papier de Hollande comme l'original, sera en tous points conforme à l'ancienne édition. La tracé des figures sera exécuté par la gravure, de façon à garantir une exactitude absolue. Pour le coloris, je me suis assuré le concours de quatre artistes, spécialistes dans ce travail" (From the printed wrappers).Very little is known about Huebner's life. The rarity of his works is due to the great upheavel caused by the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars and the long period of publication. Huebner was a man of modest means, more or less tied to his native town Augsburg. He was a designer in one of the leading cotton factories of the town. His true love and inclination were Lepidoptera. He published a number of beautifully illustrated iconographies on the subject which he published for his own account and he drew and engraved all the illustrations himself. "Nehmen wir als Beispiel die berühmten drei Schmetterlings-Iconographien des Augsburger Insecten-Malers und Muster-Zeichners in einer Kattun-Fabrik J. Hübner (1761-1826), welche als die schönsten Abbildungswerke der Entomologie gelten. Deren 1900 colorierte Tafeln sind als künstlerische Leistungen erst-rangig. (Und in der Reihe solcher Abbildungswerke, die sich die Bibliophilie und die Wissenschaft streitig machen, ist das Hübner'sche Opus eines der wenigen, bei dem der Fall eintritt, dass ihm die Wissenschaft einen höheren Preiss zubilligt, als die Bibliophilie; obzwar sonst infolge der weitaus grösseren Kaufwilligkeit und Kaufkraft, die nach der Kunst hin orientierten Sammlern innewohnt, die Preise solcher auf dem Ueberschneidungs-Gebiet wachsenden Werke eben von der Bibliophilie bestimmt werden)" (Junk. Rara p. 244). A very nice uniformly bound set.See Horn & Schenkling 10905 & 10908 for the original edition and Nissen ZBI, 2040 & 2041 for the original edition as well as the present issue.
