        THE GREAT WAR IN ENGLAND IN 1897 ..

      London: Tower Publishing Company Limited, 1894.. Octavo, pp. [1-3] 4-11 [12] 13-330 [331-332: ads] [note: signature 23, two conjugate leaves, is an insert], twenty full-page illustrations by Cyril Field and T. S. C. Crowther of which eight are inserted and twelve are integral to text leaves, one facsimile, numerous maps, several full-page, original pictorial olive-green cloth, front panel and spine panels stamped in orange and black. First edition. French and Russian troops invade England and are defeated. Le Queux was a "tireless exploiter of any scare or anxiety that would 'make a story.' Most of the war fiction he produced was extraordinarily successful, partly because he chose to write on matters of great national concern and partly because his handling of his themes never rose above the level set by the new mass newspapers. A notable example is to be found in the history of his first really profitable venture, THE GREAT WAR IN ENGLAND IN 1897, which first appeared as a serial in ANSWERS during the war scare of 1893. Then, having helped to increase the circulation of ANSWERS, it came out as a book in 1894 with a preface by Lord Roberts. It sold five editions in the first four weeks of publication; and it drew letters of commendation from the Duke of Connaught, Lord Wolseley, and other eminent personages. By 1899 it had gone through sixteen editions and had been accorded leading articles in the Paris Figaro, the Rome Opinione, and the Secolo of Milan." - Clarke, Voices (1992), p. 58.

        ROUND THE RED LAMP: BEING FACTS AND FANCIES OF MEDICAL LIFE

      London: Methuen & Co., 1894.. Octavo, pp. [i-v] vi [vii-viii] [1] 2-328 + 32-page publisher's catalogue dated "October 1894" inserted at rear, original red cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed. First edition. 6000 copies printed. This collection includes two fantasy tales, "Lot No. 249," featuring a reanimated mummy, and "The Los Amigos Fiasco," in which an attempt to electrocute a criminal creates a superhuman prisoner who cannot be killed. This collection began as a series of eight stories commissioned by Jerome K. Jerome for his IDLER MAGAZINE, but, of the eight, only three appeared there, the other five having been rejected for being too "realistic" (which, as a term of literary criticism in this period, usually means horrific, morbid, or downright depraved). In his preface, Doyle notes that a red lamp "is the usual sign of a general practitioner in England." He defends the emphasis in these stories on "the graver side of life," and compares their action on the reader to a tonic, "bitter to the taste but bracing in the result."

        Traité des maladies mentales

      1894 - VIII-856 p. 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".

        THE MOUNTAINS OF CALIFORNIA

      New York: The Century Co., 1894.. Octavo, pp. [i-viii] ix [x] xi-xiii [xiv-xvi], [1] 2-381 [382: blank [note: the blank leaf preceding the half title leaf was excised by the binder], frontispiece, 51 illustrations, 2 maps, original pictorial olive-green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in green and gold, t.e.g., fore-edge rough trimmed, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. The copies first printed, not necessarily the copies first circulated, have folio 1 below the text on page [1]; this copy lacks it. For his first book Muir selected and carefully revised articles which had appeared between 1875 and 1882 in several magazines and a newspaper. These selections, which represented much of his finest writing of the period, were prefaced by a new essay on the Sierra Nevada to provide an introduction to the detailed sketches which followed and a framework for his selections. The result was an enduring Sierra Nevada classic. "More books came from Muir's pen," writes Lawrence Clark Powell in California Classics ... ( 1971), "but none has the power, the style, and the charm of his first ... It is one man's testament to the glory of the Sierra Nevada, that radiant Range of Light. By the act of reading, book and range become ours. Such is the power of a classic." THE MOUNTAINS OF CALIFORNIA met with immediate and far-reaching success. Muir's biographer, Linnie Marsh Wolfe (Son of the Wilderness: The Life of John Muir (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1945), p. 268) summarizes its impact: "It rallied and solidified the conservation sentiment of the entire nation, leading directly to a new upsurge of determination to preserve the forests."

        TRILBY : Original Edition

      Harper & Brothers, NY 1894 - From flyleaf, in ink: "This is TRILBY, original version, but when published in book form the paragraph on page 577 to page 578 was changed to suit the sensibilities of writer who was furious at being described in the character of Joe Sibley". This was neatly bound in 3/4 leather with raised bands, from the original 1894 Harper series articles, with extraneous material being covered with quality watermarked paper. All edges gilt. . The major flaw is that the front cover is loose, and while a relatively simple repair, due to the great value of this volume, this must be left to the buyer. Light bumping to spine ends, two pages noted with minor marginalia. Without loose board would rate G+ or better. Please see or request pic or additional info.

Der Lederrücken und die Lederecken etwas berieben, alter Name am oberen Rand der Titelseite des ersten Bande, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar der deutschen ERSTAUSGABE. Grundlegende Arbeit Charcots für die Neuropathologie, durch die Übersetzung von SIGMUND FREUD auch für die Psychoanalyse. - "Obgleich er nur leitender Arzt an der Salpêtrière war, hat Charcot schon damals freie Vorlesungen gehalten, in denen die Krankheiten des Nervensystems einen großen Raum einnahmen. 1872 wurde er Professor für pathologische Anatomie als Nachfolger seines Freundes Vulpian, der den Lehrstuhl für experimentelle Medizin erhielt. 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."

        Ulozhenie Tumura (The Code of Timur).

      Kazan: The University Press, 1894 - Octavo (251 × 158 mm). contemporary black pebble-grain paper-covered boards, blind single fillet panel to boards, spine unlettered, pale green endpapers. A little rubbed, particularly at the extremities, spine creased, corners bumped, small hole to the title page, no loss of text, some browning throughout, heavier to the front and rear, but overall very good. First edition of the first translation into russian of the legal code of timur, provided with a scholarly commentary by Ostroumov. Extremely uncommon, just the British Library copy on Copac, no copies recorded on OCLC. Nikolai Ostroumov (1836–1930) "arrived in Tashkent in 1877 to take up the post of director of schools in the newly created province of Turkestan. He had been recommended to the Governor General Konstantin Petrovich von Kaufman by Nikolai Ivanovich Il'minskii, the famous Kazan' missionary and Orientalist, whose student Ostroumov had been. Ostroumov had trained in Islam and Turkic languages, and this knowledge very quickly made him a confidant of Kaufman. Ostroumov retained this proximity to power all through the tsarist period. Until 1917, Ostroumov served the state in various capacities. In 1883, he was appointed the editor of the Turkiston viloyatining gazeti, the vernacular official gazette, through which he sought to shape the contours of local cultural debates in the direction of Russian state interests. He acted as a censor for local-language publications, and his opinion on "native" affairs was routinely sought by local administrators. At the same time, he produced a vast corpus of scholarly writing on the ethnography and history of Central Asia, and on Islam. Ostroumov translated the Bible into Chaghatay and wrote anti-Islamic polemics in Russian. His private papers include correspondence with fellow Orientalists in Russia and abroad, and his writings give ample evidence of his involvement in the international enterprise of Orientalism" (Khalid, "Russian History and the Debate over Orientalism" in Kritika, I, 4, fall 2000, p. 691).

        BEYOND THE ICE: BEING A STORY OF THE NEWLY DISCOVERED REGION ROUND THE NORTH POLE. Edited from Dr. Frank Farleigh's Diary..

      London: Sampson, Low, Marston & Company Limited... Melbourne: M. L. Hutchinson, n.d. [1894].. Octavo, pp. [i-iii] iv-vi [vii] viii [1] 2-326 [327: printer's imprint] [328: blank], original pictorial blue-gray cloth, front panel stamped in white, spine panel stamped in white and gold, top and fore edges untrimmed, white endpapers with pattern incorporating publisher's monogram printed in gray. First edition. Utopian lost race novel set in "Fregida," a north polar region comprising the nations of Zara, Ura, Gurla, and Roda. Farleigh, the sole survivor of an expedition to the north pole, is taken to Zara, a constitutional republic, and the most advanced of the four nations in all ways. Three of these nations were "founded in the late eighteenth century when a scientific polar expedition, on the brink of death, wandered into the temperate area, which was already peopled by a large population of unknown origin and language ... Among the scientists was one William O'Brien, who set up the state as it now its. Two of his companions set up two other nations ... The nation of Zara gradually expands to include the other three nations - Ura, Roda, and Gurla -- which it transforms to its own cultural pattern. This expansion comes through merger and war, in which bomb-dropping airships are the decisive factor. The novel ends with the unification of the circumpolar nations ..." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1592. At the time of Farleigh's arrival, humane liberalism is giving way to ominously simplified "scientific" social thinking and it is determined that "in our community no thing or animal that is detrimental to the general welfare is allowed to increase its species." This policy leads to the ruthless extermination of the Rodas, a primitive race of savages who live on the fringe of the polar communities.
