Set during the early years of the 19th century, this pre-Civil War satire tackles social commentary issues still being debated today. Twain presents the reader with a light-skinned black mother switching her infant with her white master's in order to prevent her own child being raised as a slave. Twain uses humor and irony in revealing seething levels of racism and classicism .

      [Denver. 1894].. Preliminary leaf printing ordering information, 139pp. 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 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.

        De l'asepsie et antisepsie en obstétrique. Leçons professées à la clinique d'accouchements recueillies et rédigées par J.Potocki.

      Steinheil, Paris 1894 - Fort et grand volume in-8, XIV, 839 pp., 3 planches en chromolithographie, 37 figures dans le texte, demi-chagrin havane à nerfs, tête dorée (reliure moderne). Précieux exemplaire de dédicace. Tarnier a dédié cet ouvrage à Herrgott et lui a offert cet exemplaire, qui comporte un envoi autographe signé de sa main. Herrgott est un autre grand nom de l'obstétrique et de l'antisepsie. "Il a participé ardemment à la lutte contre la fièvre puerpérale à la Faculté de médecine de Strasbourg, puis de Nancy" (H.Stofft). Il existe deux annotations manuscrites, sans doute de la main de Herrgott : indication du lieu et de la date de la mort de Tarnier à la suite de ses principaux titres indiqués sur la page de titre, et mention "Lauréat et correspondant de l'Institut" à la suite des principaux titres de Herrgot sur la page de dédicace. Très bel exemplaire, à grandes marges et d'une grande fraîcheur. Édition originale très rare. Stéphane Tarnier fut le premier à adapter la méthode de Lister à l'obstétrique, avec l'utilisation du phénol. Il contribua aussi beaucoup à développer l'asepsie, utilisant une technique d'exclusion péritonéale pour la césarienne. Le but constant de sa vie professionnelle, depuis sa thèse jusqu'à la fin de sa carrière, a été de faire disparaître la fièvre puerpérale. Tarnier réduisit considérablement la mortalité maternelle liée à la fièvre puerpérale, qui passa de 9,3 % à 1 % cf. GARRISON & MORTON, 5639 : "Tarnier was the first to adopt Listerism in obstetrics" ; Cutter & Viets, p.194 : "Tarnier is best remembered for axis traction forceps, but he also gained fame as the first to adopt Listerism in obstetrics The book on asepsis and antisepsis, with particular stress on obstetrics, was based on Tarnier's lectures at the Maternité, as rearranged by his assistant, J.Potocki.

        The Poetical Works

      [by Spottiswoode and Co for] Smith, Elder, & Co, London 1894 - Frontispiece portraits in vols. 3, 7, 8, 10 and 16. 17 volumes. Large 8vo. 237 x 157 x 685 mm]. Original tan cloth, the spines printed paper labels, plain endleaves, uncut edges. (Spines darkened, four labels defective and others chipped, some endleaves browned, and a little rubbed and marked). Limited to 250 copies on hand-made paper. There are a few minor spots and the bindings show some signs of wear but it is a decent copy. Browning died in 1889, so these are his final words. Vol.1 is inscribed in ink on the front endleaf: "I gave this set to my mother as it was published. Stanley Baldwin", vols 3 and 17 have pencil inscriptions "Louisa Baldwin from S.B." and all the volumes have the large bookplate of Louisa Baldwin designed by M.D. Johnston and dated 1922. Stanley Baldwin (1867-1947) served three times as British Prime Minister, in 1923-24, 1924-29 and 1935-37. He was the only child of Alfred and Louisa Baldwin, who married in 1866. Louisa (1845-1925) was the youngest of the four remarkable Macdonald sisters. Alice (1837-1910) was the mother of Rudyard Kipling, Georgina (1840-1920) married the painter Sir Edward Burne-Jones and Agnes (1843-1906) married the painter Sir Edward Poynter. Alfred Baldwin was a successful Worcestershire ironmaker and the couple lived at Wilden House, near to the works. Louisa suffered from poor health but read widely and wrote four novels, along with poetry and collections of stories. She encouraged her son's love of literature, although he failed to shine at Harrow, or Trinity College, Cambridge, from where he graduated with a third in 1888. He returned home to work in the family firm and became Managing Director in 1902. He inherited almost £200,000 on his father's death in 1908, and remained engaged in business until appointed to his first ministerial office in 1917.

        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."

        Determination experimentale de la valeur du metre

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1894. <p>Presentation Copy</p> Michelson, Albert Abraham (1852-1931). Determination experimentale de la valeur du metre en longueurs d&#39;ondes lumineuses. Offprint from Travaux et Memoires du Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, Vol. 11. 4to. 237 [3]pp. 2 plates. Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1894. 314 x 240 mm. Contemporary cloth. Title evenly browned, with small bookplate tipped to it; bookplate also on front pastedown. Presentation Copy, inscribed (probably by a publisher&#39;s clerk) on the front free endpaper: "Avec les compliments de l&#39;Auteur." </p><p>First Separate Edition of Michelson&#39;s paper describing his and Edward Morley&#39;s experimental determination of the length of the international meter bar in terms of wave-lengths of cadmium light, providing thereby a reproducible standard. "Adapting his refractometer as a comparator for lengths that could be reduced through spectroscopy and interferometric techniques to nonmaterial standards of length, Michelson found in 1892-93 that the Paris meter bar was equal to 1,553,163.5 wavelengths of the red cadmium line. So elegant were the success and precision of this project that Michelson became internationally famous" (DSB). </p><p>In 1907 Michelson, "the man who taught the world to measure," became the first American to win a Nobel Prize in the sciences, receiving the physics prize for his "optical instruments of precision and the spectroscopic and metrological investigations which he carried out by means of them" (Weber, Pioneers of Science [2nd ed.], p. 31). Michelson is remembered today chiefly for the "Michelson-Morley experiment" (1887), an attempt to measure the relative velocity through which the earth moves through the hypothetical "luminiferous ether"-primarily because of the influence this had on the development of relativity theory. It is probable, however, that the above work of 1894 was also highly valued by the Nobel committee in 1907.</p><p> Our sources do not show a separate English-language edition of Michelson&#39;s Determination experimentale de la valeur du metre, nor do they indicate where, if ever, the English-language version was published. Since Michelson performed his measurements in Paris, it is reasonable to assume that his paper appeared first in French.
