        [Original Photographs]: Two Portraits of a Young Woman

      Richmond, Virginia. [circa 1895]. Two very rare portrait photographs taken by James Conway Farley, now recognized as America's first prominent African-American photographer, taken at his studio in Richmond, Virginia. Both are cabinet cards in fine condition (measuring 3.25" x 5"), with blind stamped borders and the studio name printed in maroon: "Jefferson Art Gallery, 523 Broad Street, Richmond, Va." Each portrait is of the same unidentified young woman wearing a different fashionable dress and hat. She appears to be in her twenties, and possibly of mixed race. Both photographs were likely taken not long after Farley opened his studio, "The Jefferson" in 1895. A historically important, scarce survival. .

        Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen. (Vorläufige Mittheilung).

      . Würzburg, Sitzungsberichte der Physik.-Med. Gesellschaft zu Würzberg, 1895 (1896). 9 pp. [numbered 132-141], including several calculations. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Spine with gilt title.l The discovery and first announcement of X-rays, or Röntgen rays, in the Sitzungsberichte of the society, year 1895, number 9: "Am 28. Dezember wurde als Beitrag eingereicht: W. C. Röntgen: Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen". This discovery brought Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845-1923) the first Nobel Prize in Physics (1901). The importance of this discovery was immediately understood and almost instantly this paper was translated into English and republished in Nature on the 23rd of January, 1896. The later Nature-edition is better known in the English-speaking world. The publisher, meanwhile, rushed out six editions of the offprint, enhancing the layout with each edition, adding printed wrappers, then title pages, and then additional advertising bands, and almost immediately announced translations into French, Italian and English (Glasser, pp. 23-24). The offprints may in fact be more common than the official publication in the Sitzungsberichte. We offer the complete year 1895, bound with the year 1894. The 1894 volume contains two more papers by Röntgen, namely "Mitteilung einiger Versuche mit einem rechtwinkeligen Glasprisma", and "Ueber den Einfluss des Druckes auf die Dielectricitäts Constanten des Wassers und des Aethylalkohols (Schluss)". Stamp on the title of the 1895 volume, and vague stamp on the title of the 1894 volume; otherwise a very good copy. Glasser 767 (with printing error "Dez. 1896" for "Dez. 1895"); PMM, 380; Sparrow, 171..

A Merle Johnson High Spot of America Literature. Signed presentation (in pencil) from Burgess on the front cover: "To my friend May Day, with the compliments of F.G.B."

        Joining the Navy; or Abroad with Uncle Sam

      Hartford, Connecticut: American Publishing Company. 1895. First. First edition. 298pp., portrait frontispiece, plates. A tear on the front fly near the hinge with a little offsetting at the top of the page and wear at the ends of the lightly toned spine, a very good or better copy. This copy Inscribed by the author to the President of the United States: "To The President, Hon. Wm. McKinley, With the respectful homage of the Author, Jno. H. Paynter, Wash. D.C. Feb 20/98." The New Castle, Delaware-born author, after graduating from Lincoln University in 1883, was about to begin the study of medicine at Howard when he suffered a partial loss of his eyesight that prohibited him from embarking on the extensive course of study. He chose instead to make a cruise on a U.S. Man-of-War as a cabin boy, one of the few positions available to Negroes in the Navy. This book recounts his experiences throughout his world cruise. Paynter resumed government service with the U.S. Postal Service and spent 39 years working for the Department of the Treasury. Much later in life he wrote several other books, including one on the problems facing the Negro in government service. Joining the Navy saw subsequent republication. First in the 1930s an edition was published with an introduction by W.E.B. Du Bois, and in 1980 the United States Government Printing Office published a facsimile edition. Work p.477, Blockson Collection 908 (Second edition), Brignano 379. .

        AN ATLAS OF THE FERTILIZATION AND KARYOKINESIS OF THE OVUM

      New York: Macmillan, 1895. FIRST EDITION. VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. Oversize quarto. vii, 32 pp. With 10 photographic plates of various stages of Cell and Embryonic Development, plus numerous diagrams in the text. Original blue buckram, gilt (signs of use; significant section of lower cover scuffed and discolored; pastedowns and endpapers a little dusty). A tight copy. PRESENTATION COPY OF THE FIRST AND ONLY EDITION OF E.B. WILSON'S PIONEERING "ATLAS OF THE FERTILIZATION AND KARYOKINESIS OF THE OVUM," a ground-breaking work owing to its astonishingly early synthesis of Cytogenetics. This volume holds important original insights into cytology, inheritance, and early cell biochemistry, and elegantly presents them for both general and scholarly audiences. Additionally it offers FOR THE FIRST TIME ACTUAL EXAMPLES OF CELLULAR DEVELOPMENT BY MEANS OF MICROSCOPIC PHOTOGRAPHY, here described as "photomicrographs." These photographs of the cell were created in collaboration with Edward Leaming of Columbia University. Incredibly, the "Atlas of the Fertilization" appeared five years before the 1900 discovery of Mendel's forgotten "Studies in Plant Hybridization" (1865). It also anticipated -- by four nearly decades -- the focus on the DNA structure of genes. The "Atlas" is a deceptively simple, yet profound synthesis; here Wilson presented the conceptual framework for future discussions of the physical and chemical basis of inheritance. "In an astounding, prophetic conclusion, Wilson states: 'These facts justify the conclusion that the nuclei of the two germ-cells are in morphological sense precisely equivalent, and that they lend strong support to Hertwig's identification of the nucleus as the bearer of hereditary qualities. The precise equivalence of the chromosomes contributed by the two sexes is a physical correlative of the fact that the two sexes play, on the whole, equal parts in hereditary transmission, and it seems to show that the chromosomal substance, the chromatin, is to be regarded as the physical basis of inheritance. Now, chromatin is known to be closely similar to, if not identical with, a substance known as nuclein (C29 H49 N9 P3 022 according to Miescher), which analysis shows to be a tolerably definite chemical composed of nucleic acid (a complex organic acid rich in phosphorus) and albumin. And thus we reach the remarkable conclusion that inheritance may, perhaps, be effected by the physical transmission of a particular chemical compound from parent to offspring'" (cited by Bruce Wallace, "The Search for the Gene," 1992, p. 32). Edmund Beecher Wilson (1856-1939) was "among the most important and prolific biologists in the last part of the nineteenth and first part of the twentieth centuries" (Garland Allen). His most famous contribution to scholarship was "The Cell in Inheritance and Development" (1896 et seq.) which summarized and critically evaluated the enormous amount of research done on the cell in the 19th- and early 20th-centuries. Wilson spent most of his career at Columbia University where he was successively adjunct professor of biology (1891-94), professor of invertebrate zoology (1894-97), and professor of zoology beginning in 1897. Wilson is credited as America's first cell biologist. LITERATURE: The contemporary review of "The Atlas" in The American Naturalist (Vol. 29, No. 348. [Dec., 1895], pp. 1075-1076) praises the work, and comments on Wilson's excellent reputation. Yet this review did not appreciate this remarkable synthesis in cell biology -- it failed to comment on Wilson's formulation of the physical and chemical basis of inheritance. See also Jane Maienschein, "From Presentation to Representation in E.B. Wilson's 'The Cell'" in: Biology and Philosophy Vol. 6 [1991], pp. 227-254. PROVENANCE: "Presentation Copy" (blind-stamp on title-page) from the author to Andrew Francis Dixon (1868-1936) of Trinity College Dublin, University Professor of Anatomy from 1903 until his death (see his obituary in Nature, vol. 137, p. 217). Dixon's "A Manual of Human Osteology" (1912) merited reprinting 25 years after it was originally published. -- Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (bookplate inside front cover).

Oblong 8vo. The Ruins of Pompeii, 74 Albumen Photographs by Rive. Roberto Rive (ca. 1840-90) was born in Prussia and established by the 1850s as a photographer in Naples. He specialized in landscape and topographic views as well as images of excavations and ancient sites which he sold to tourists on the Grand Tour. He photographed the ruins and excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 1868 and 1895 and his images are among the first to show the stunning frescoes, sculpture and architectural remains of the cities buried and preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Between 1863 and 1875 the excavation of Pompeii was led by the archaeologist Giuseppe Fiorelli. He pioneered the technique of pouring plaster of Paris into moulds left by victims of the eruption to create vivid casts of their bodies and expressions. Rive's work records many of Fiorelli's casts along with the discoveries of earlier excavations. With 74 images, this is the largest collection of Rive's Pompeii views that we can trace (others of 40 and 48 views are known). A fine survey of the excavations of Pompeii by one of the most important photographers of the Italian landscape of the 19th century.

        The Second Jungle Book (Presentation Copy with Publisher's Bookmark & 19th Century Dust Jacket)

      Macmillan, 1895, Hardcover, Book Condition: About Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: Good, First U.K. Edition, First Printing, Illustrated By: John Lockwood Kipling, C.I.E.Blue cloth with title and decorations stamped in gilt onto upper board and spine, 12mo (7-1/4 inches tall), all edges gilt, colored endpapers, illustrated throughout with jungle theme line drawings. Volume with spine ends softened and a tiny bump to the foot of the lower board near spine, contemporary gift inscription in ink "Jack. .." at head of the contents page, two small ink dots near top edge of title page. Gilt is bright and text is clean, lacking the foxing commonly found. DJ is worn and soiled with tears and chipping, especially at spine ends and top edge, some splatters to upper spine panel and tape repairs verso. The front panel has "Jack" written in a juvenile hand multiple times in pencil and is partially erased. An interesting coincidence that Kipling's son was John "Jack" Kipling. The bookmark has minor creases and fading to the head, else fine. An intact and robust survivor of one of Kipling's most enduring works, destined to be "King of the Jungle" in any early jacket or Kipling collection. ". ..There are thousands that do write; there are dozens that can write; but there is only one Rudyard Kipling." Rudyard Kipling - An Attempt at Appreciation, Monkshood, G. F. (pseud. W. J. Clarke), 1899. The 1895 Macmillan edition of The Second Jungle Book is a relative rarity when found complete in it's original 19th century dust jacket. It was the first illustrated Kipling UK dust jacket issued and is found in only a handful of institutions. Auction house records document the presence of a jacket (in various states of completeness - 1964, '73, '92 & '97) just four times. This jacketed copy also has the publisher's circular "PRESENTATION COPY" blind stamp on the title page and was thus reserved for a patron, friend or colleague. Found within, is the publisher's bookmark, with the printed date of "10.9.95" at it's foot. Macmillan's own records, held in the British Library, show "12 November 1895" (Richards, A85) as the official publication date of the first UK edition of The Second Jungle Book - following by just three days the publication of The Century Co.'s first US edition. The bookmark has "Works by Rudyard Kipling" printed at it's head, and shows The Second Jungle Book as being available prior to either of the known US or UK publication dates, at a price of "6s".Cutler & Styles, in "Modern British Authors: Their First Editions" (1930) show the London edition of The Second Jungle Book as being the first, rather than the US edition. The bookmark is an unusual and evocative piece of advertising ephemera, showing an earlier selection of works by Rudyard Kipling, the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Ref. Richards, A85; Cutler & Styles p. 81.
