        Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, the Astronomer Poet of Persia. Rendered into English Verse by Edward Fitzgerald. With an accompaniment of drawings by Elihu Vedder.

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin at the Riverside Press, 1894. 8vo., [59] photo-lithographed plates (including frontis, title and dedication plates), followed by 61 pp. of text. all on folded pages. Elaborately gilt-stamped brown cloth, gilt title to backstrip, floral endpapers also by Vedder, top-edge gilt. Binding slightly rubbed at edges, minor fraying at corners, internally bright; very good. Gift inscription in ink on recto of frontis, “To Father from George, Annie and Florence. Christmas 1902.” Sweet poem written in contemporary manuscript hand by John W. Chadwick slipped in. This edition first published in 1884. The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám is said to be one of the ten best known poems in the world, and probably the most popular piece of Middle Eastern literature in the Western World. There are hundreds of editions published from Fitzgerald’s various translations alone. American symbolist artist Elihu Vedder (1836-1923) is best known for his illustrations of the Rubáiyát. Vedder met a number of Pre-Raphaelite painters while visiting London in 1876, and attended an exhibition of William Blake’s work at the Burlington Club. Blake’s influence can be seen in Vedder’s idealized human forms. He is also known for his mural work in Collis P. Huntington’s mansion, the Walker Art Gallery at Bowdoin College, and the Library of Congress. Vedder’s illustrations for the Rubáiyát were some of the earliest examples of Art Nouveau in America. This first Houghton Mifflin edition was so popular it sold out in just six days. (See Stillman, and ANB).

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Edison"), to Norman C. Raff, relating to the early efforts in motion picture exhibition

      1894. 1 page. In pencil. 4to. Old folds, lightly and evenly toned, two expert repairs in upper margin. 1 page. In pencil. 4to. Edison and the Birth of Film. A letter dating from the birth year of motion picture exhibition, from the inventor of the medium, Edison, to one of the first motion picture distributors and producers, Norman C. Raff, mentioning a third important figure in the history of film, Otway Latham. In full: "My Dear Raff- I have had a long talk with Latham on the subject of prize f[ight] machines and while I do not know your ideas on the subject It seems to me that if both L & yourself could enter into some understanding mutually beneficial it would be a good stroke, and stop friction all around. Yours Edison" Norman C. Raff (1857-1925) provided a crucial early investment in film when he purchased in 1894 a number of Kinetoscope machines, or "peep-show" boxes, developed by Edison to exhibit his new motion picture technology. In April of that same year he helped open the first Kinetoscope parlour, on lower Broadway in Manhattan, to enormous success. A few months later, Otway Latham (1868-1906) made a crucial technological advancement, increasing the Kinetscope's capacity and reducing the camera speed such that he could exhibit boxing matches through a series of abbreviated, one-minute rounds using specially modified Kinetoscope machines, the "p[rize] fight machines" Edison refers to in the letter. The first fight produced by Latham, between Brooklyn boxers Mike Leonard and Jack Cushing, was recorded in the summer of 1894 at Edison's Black Maria film studio in West Orange, New Jersey; its exhibition that August, in a New York Kinetoscope parlour partly owned by Raff, "drew almost riotous crowds for many days on end, and the police had to be called in to keep order" (Josephson p 395). The success of the film led to Latham purchasing 72 additional Kinetoscope machines at $300 each--a subject that no doubt arose during the course of the "long talk" Edison references in the letter. Sources of the "friction" Edison alludes to would have included Edison's agreeing to sell the prize fight machines to Latham's group exclusively, as well as Raff incorporating as "The Kinetoscope Company," after Latham's group had already been operating as "The Kinetoscope Exhibiting Company." The same month this letter was written, Raff began in earnest to produce films at the Black Maria, including his famous "Joan of Arc" and "The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots." The next year Latham would develop the Panoptikon and the Eidoloscope, the first motion picture projectors used to show commercial films, which would ultimately render the Kinetoscope obsolete. These and related efforts by Edison, Raff, Latham and a small number of others in 1894 to develop and exhibit Kinetoscope films were of utmost importance to the development of film, as they demonstrated an enormous public appetite for the medium, the ultimate effect of which is difficult to overstate: "The impact that this new entertainment medium was to have upon the minds and lives of hundreds of millions throughout the world was something unforeseen and unimagined-perhaps surpassing the effect of almost all other nineteenth-century inventions, by Edison or anyone else" (Josephson p 395). Edison letters dating from and pertaining to the nascent years of film are rare on the market. Josephson pp. 394-96; The Man Who Made Movies: W.K.L. Dickson pp. 312-317

        Traité des maladies mentales

      Paris, J.B. Baillière et fils, 1894, in-8, VIII-856 p, demi-chagrin rouge de l'époque, dos à nerfs, 42 figures et une carte in texte. Troisième édition. Henri Dagonet (1823-1902) fut médecin en chef de l'asile de Stephansfeld, puis professeur agrégé à la Faculté de médecine de Strasbourg, chargé d'enseignement sur les maladies mentales et nerveuses. En 1867, il est nommé médecin en chef de la division des hommes de l'asile Sainte-Anne, à son ouverture. Là, avec Prosper Lucas, Valentin Magnan et Gustave Bouchereau, il organisa un enseignement pratique, ouvert au public extérieur à l'asile qui fit l'objet d'une virulente campagne de presse conduisant à sa suspension. Les leçons qu'il dispensa à Strasbourg sont à l'origine de cet ouvrage. Repoussant la classification étiologique de Morel, il s'appuie sur celle admise par les aliénistes (adoptée notamment par Baillarger et Esquirol). Cette classification est fondée sur l'observation clinique et sur la symptomatologie. Cette troisième édition, profondément remaniée, fait de cet ouvrage une "oeuvre nouvelle". Ce livre eut un succès considérable. Magnan le cite en ces termes "devenu classique, répandu non seulement en France mais aussi à l'étranger, il a servi de guide à plusieurs générations de médecins ; les magistrats, à leur tour, et les administrateurs y puisent de précieux renseignements". Semelaigne, II, p. 100.

Er setzte aber seinen klinischen Unterricht an der Salpêtrière fort. 1882 wurde auf Anregung von Gambetta ein klinischer Lehrstuhl für die Nervenkrankheiten für ihn geschaffen. Damit wurde der Unterricht in der Neurologie zum erstenmal in der Geschichte der Medizin von dem in den anderen Fachgebieten abgetrennt. Der Unterricht Charcots war besonders glänzend und hat eine große Menge von Ärzten aus Frankreich und anderen Ländern an die Salpêtrière gezogen. Mehrere Neurologen, die später selbst bedeutende Lehrer wurden, waren seine Schüler an der Salpêtrière. Neben der Hauptvorlesung am Freitag Vormittag, in der er die stationären Kranken vorstellte, führte er auch die \'Dienstagsvorlesungen\' ein, in denen er den Studenten die Kranken vorstellte, die am gleichen Tage in die Poliklinik (Consultation externe) gekommen waren.\" (Kolle).

        Dessins inédits de Viollet-le-Duc [Complete three volume set w/ 327 plates] publiés sous le patronage de l'Administration des beaux-arts par les soins de A. de Baudot, J. Roussel

      Paris: Armand Guérinet. Very Good. 1894. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 138; 130; 59 plates pages; Complete set of the three series -- undated, but circa 1894-1902 -- OCLC: 6595933. These three large portfolios contain reproductions of drawings by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc (1814 – 1879), a major French architect and theorist. Born in Paris, he embraced rebellion as a youth, and is said to have built a barricade in the Revolution of 1830. And, although he was drawn to architecture early, he refused to enter the École des Beaux-Arts, thinking it stuffy and his attendence would entail years of uninspiring rote work and copying. So he apprenticed in the architectural offices of Jacques-Marie Huvé and Achille-François-René Leclère. After studies in Italy, Viollet-le-Duc was commissioned to undertake the first of a series of restorations of medieval buildings, when Prosper Mérimée entrusted the young architect with the commission to restore the Romanesque abbey at Vézelay. This led to a series of important similar commissions to restore the glorious architectural past of France, including Mont Saint-Michel, Carcassonne, Roquetaillade, and, of course, the work that would become one of the signatures of his career and his time -- Notre Dame de Paris, for which Viollet-le-Duc became famous all over Europe. His understanding of the scope and nature of "restoration" is not entirely consistent with modern thinking. On one hand, Viollet-le-Duc had a thorough knowledge of period detail, as many of these drawings demonstrate. He knew what the Gothic and Romanesque builders knew and understood the materials available to them and their properties profoundly. But his position was represented by a key passage in his influential 10 volume 'Dictionnaire Raisonné de L'Architecture Française du XIe au XVIe siècle' -- "Restaurer un édifice, ce n'est pas l'entretenir, le reparer ou le refaire, c'est le rétablir dans un état complet qui ne peut avoir jamais existé à un moment donné". [Restoration, goes beyond maintenance, repair and rebuilding, but may bring a building to a finished state, which may in fact never have actually existed at any given time]. In the case of Notre Dame, the application of Viollet-le-Duc's principles of restoration led to something which went well beyond fixing up and cleaning; his "updated" led to the addition of the great cathedral's distinctive third tower, and added many of the fabulous grotesques which enhance the facade. These grotesques grew out of the vast number of notes and drawings, which Viollet-le-Duc made throughout his life -- not only for the buildings he was working on, but also on Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance buildings that were soon to be demolished. The drawings were a source for his great 'Dictionnaire raisonné de l'architecture française ...' and for other books and his high-profile restoration work. But they are also a fine resource in themselves and a window into the developed eye and culture of an epochal figure in architecture. Sir John Summerson wrote in 1948 that "there have been two supremely eminent theorists in the history of European architecture - Leon Battista Alberti and Eugène Viollet-le-Duc." These three portfolios were published by Armand Guérinet, a leading publisher of architectural books in Paris. They are undated, but most instutions assign a range of dates from about 1896 for the first, to 1902 for the final, third series. I: The first series has a note at head of title: "Archives de la Commission des monuments historiques, Musee de sculpture comparee, Bibliotheque." There is an internal title page, four leaves of notes and a list of plates, and two series of plates; A1-A99 [plates A1-A45 depict details of Notre Dame] ; and 100-138. The final twenty plates in the second group are photographs mostly by Aron, of various buildings restored by Viollet-le-Duc; most depict Notre Dame de Paris. II: Is denoted on the title page: "Ensembles." Title page, list of plates and 130 plates. Many of these are larger than the sheets full of smaller detail drawings in the first volume, and quite a few are photographs by Aron, beautifully reproduced in single sheet-fed heliogravure. Several plates are double numbers, on double sized sheets (as is the case with the first portfolio). III: has caption subtitle "Nouvelle série" on p. [3]. Title page, list of plates and 59 sheets of plates. Plates 1-48 contain reproductions of the original drawings which served to illustrate the 'Voyages pittoresques et romantiques dans l'ancienne France by Nodier, Taylor and Cailleux'. The remainder of the plates are drawings of detail, to complement the collection published in the first series: "Détails d'exécution." Condition: The portfolios are intact, integral and original, with cloth spines and printed paper covered boards, and three fabric ties securing each portfolio. The plates and text sheets are loosely laid in the portfolios as issued. The boards of the portfolios display some modest toning and a trace of soiling, one tie (only) is missing from the first portfolio, at the bottom. There is toning to the title pages and the versos of the final plates, a transfer from the glues used in assembling the portfolios -- (particularly true of the first series). Contents are collated and all the plates are present -- [actually, there is one extra plate in the first series, a second plate designated "A39."] A few plates display some very light foxing, mostly in the margins, and a very few have minor scrappiness in the margins or a turned-down corner or two, as is almost inevitable in hundred-year-old collections issued as loose plates in portfolio, but there are no tears, damage, or marks of any sort. A complete set of the three series -- represented in a number of institutional holdings -- [see OCLC Number: 10751973], but are now scarce in commerce. The many fine architectural photographs by Aron, reproduced in the handsome heliogravure which is now very nearly a lost art, help put the Viollet-le-Duc drawings in context, and form a contemporary record of the restorations of Notre Dame de Paris, Mont Saint-Michel, Carcassonne, Roquetaillade, and the Château de Pierrefonds, (a final commission "reinterpreted" by Viollet-le-Duc for Napoleon III, a work which was interrupted by the departure of the Emperor in 1870). These restorations are likely to be debated and studied for the next thousand years. (A heavy and awkward three volume set which will require extra postage for alll destinations, but is worth the trouble). .

        Bibliography of Henry David Thoreau with an Outline of His Life. Compiled and Chronologically Arranged by . .

      Cleveland: Printed for the Rowfant Club by the De Vinne Press of New York, 1894, 1894. First edition, number 53 of 90 numbered copies. BAL volume 8, page 283. Boards a little worn and soiled; label soiled with one corner chipped, just affecting the lettering; faint early ownership marking or off-setting to the frontis, once partially removed; a good copy. Rare.. 8vo, quarter white parchment, gray paper boards, printed paper label. Frontis portrait of a mounted albumen print (10.5 x 7.25 cm) of a daguerreotype portrait of Thoreau by B.W. Maxham of Worcester, Mass, first taken in 1856. The first bibliography of Thoreau, compiled by Thoreau enthusiast Samuel Arthur Jones, a resident of Detroit and author of two other works - both scarce - on Thoreau. The frontis portrait is a print of the famous daguerreotype by B.W. Maxham, probably reproduced with the assistance of Alfred W. Hosmer of Concord, Mass., another Thoreau enthusiast and photographer who owned one of the rare originals. Hosmer also reproduced this portrait for use in his pamphlet Chronology of the Life of Henry D. Thoreau, 1817-1862, privately published in 1895. Older unidentified bookseller's description pasted to the front paste-down.

        Pithecanthropus erectus. Eine menschenaehnliche Uebergangsform aus Java. Mit Zwei tafeln und Drei in den Text gedruckten Figuren. [AND] An original photo of the type locality at Trinil, Java, most probably by Eugène Dubois himself.

      - Batavia, Landesdruckerei, 1894. Large 4to (32.2 x 25.9 cm). Title page, [ii], 31 pp., two plates (one with photos of a skull, the other a tinted lithograph of bones), two text engravings. Blind quarter cloth over original printed boards.= Unique dedication copy of the true first edition of this ground-breaking work in human evolution, being the first unambiguous record of "the missing link", a human species decidedly older and more primitive than Homo sapiens, based on well-preserved fossils found at Trinil near the Bengawan [Bengavian] Solo river in east-central Java. The Dutch anatomist, anthropologist and palaeontologist Marie Eugène François Thomas Dubois (1858-1940) was the first to deliberately search for hominid fossils, and the first to be successful at it. Dubois' discovery was proof that humans were as much the subject of evolution as any other animal or plant. This edition precedes the edition from "Jaarboek van het Mijnwezen" and its offprint, which were both published in 1895. Dubois immediately realized the great importance of his discovery and could not wait for the "Jaarboek" to be published, let alone for a thorough description of all the mammalian fossils found at the Trinil site. In the preface, dated January 1894, Dubois stated "Für die Abfassung einer einigermaassen vollständigen Beschreibung ist die Vergleichung der gesammelten Fossilien mit ähnlichen Sammlungen, namentlich in europäischen Museen. erforderlich - und so wird die Veröffentlichung jener Beschreibung und der in mancher Beziehung wichtigen allgemeineren Untersuchungsergebnisse wahrscheinlich nog längere Zeit ausbleiben müssen. Die in der vorliegende Abhandlung beschriebene Form is jedoch von zo ganz besonderem Interesse, und giebt zu Schlüssen von so grosser und allgemeiner Bedeutung Anlass, dass. sie schon jetzt zu bearbeiten und der Oeffentlichkeit zu überlieferen". It took Dubois and his fossils many years to convince the majority of the scientific world of the importance of these findings, and today it is universally regarded as a cornerstone in human palaeontology and evolution. This edition was printed at and published by the "Landesdruckerei" [actually Landsdrukkerij in Batavia, or modern-day Jakarta]. Very few copies of this edition are known to exist. Provenance: on the front free endpaper, Dubois wrote in a neat hand "Met broederlijke groet van den schrijver" [with brotherly regards from the author]. An oblong albumen print (11.8 x 15.8 cm) of the Bengawan Solo river, cutting through the Pleistocene deposits in which P. erectus was found, has been inserted. In the left lower centre is a white tent, most probably of Dubois's team, adjacent to a cliff with outcrops of sediment layers. On the photo verso "vindplaats Pithecanthropus" [type locality of Pithecanthropus] is written in an old hand. A unique copy - inscribed by the author to his brother - with an original photograph.
