        Nagasaki.

      c. 1895 - Hand-coloured albumen print. Three-part panorama, good tonal range and in good condition, photographer's title and number in negative. Dimensions: 210 by 830mm. ( 8.5 by 33 inches). Despite being one of the most artistic and broad-ranging photographers of Japan in the late nineteenth century, little is known about Tamotsu Enami, and many assume him to be the same person as N. Enami. He trained under Ogawa Kazumara, before setting up his own studio in 1892. His studio was successful and had branches as far a field as Hong Kong and the Philippines. It was the only Japanese studio to produce both views and portraits of all sizes and types. Nagasaki lies at the head of a long bay which forms the best natural harbour on the island of Kyushu, and is home to one of Japan's oldest international ports, becoming a 'free port' in 1859. As much of the city was destroyed when it became the target of the world's second atomic bomb attack, these two 19th century views are therefore of great historical importance.

      THE MERRY MUSES OF CALEDONIA;    N.D. Latest date I found was 1895 footnote; Robert Burns; Limited Edition; Privately Printed for Subscribers Only; Rebound Leather; w6.6"xh9.8"; 143 Pages; Very Rare!!!Great For any Fan of the Famous Author or Collector. Great Gift Idea; Only 750 Copies Printed for Great Britain, from the only known copy of 1800 Dumfries Edition, this being #304!!!  ATTRIBUTES:  A Beautiful, sleek dark purple cloth cover design with darker purple morocco leather binding/corners, gold borders, ornate gold floral binding, gold tops of pages, marble end pages and some Great Classic Poetry from the Famous Author; Nice Size!!!  SUMMARY:  A COLLECTION OF FAVOURITE SCOTS SONGS ANCIENT AND MODERN SELECTED FOR THE USE OF THE CROCHALLAN FENCIBLES.Many scholars and Robert Burns enthusiasts prefer not to mention his association with the Merry Muses of Caledonia because they don't like him to be associated with this sort of material. Burns allegedly made no secret of his interest in erotic verse and bawdy song but apparently he kept this in a locked drawer at home. Well, you would, wouldn't you?It was first published within three or four years of his death and of the original only two copies are known to exist but it has since been published several times in facsimile editions. Burns both wrote and collected this material so there is no knowing how much of it is actually his. While some of it is local and clearly from the hand of the bard he may also have collected other material during his tours around Scotland.BACKGROUND:   Robert Burns (25 January 1759 ?" 21 July 1796) (also known as Robbie Burns Rabbie Burns, Scotland's favourite son, the Ploughman Poet, Robden of Solway Firth, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as The Bard) was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these writings his political or civil commentary is often at its bluntest.   CONDITION:  Condition is Good+/Very Good. Small wear to edges, faint mark to lower back board, darker purple in person, some light blemishing here and there, hinges/text block are very good for around 120 years old!!!

        STELLA AND AN UNFINISHED COMMUNICATION: STUDIES OF THE UNSEEN

      London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co New York: Macmillan & Co,. 1895. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 1-177 [178: ads],. original green cloth, front panel ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, top edge untrimmed, black coated endpapers.. Binding slightly leaned, touch of wear to cloth at head and tail of. spine panel, a near fine, bright copy. Quite scarce. (#8212). First edition. The first appearance of two important nineteenth century science fiction stories, both collected later in Hinton's SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES, SECOND SERIES (1896). "Stella" is "the story of an invisible girl of a rather moralistic bent, who has various adventures;" "An Unfinished Communication" is "a much more baroque tale in which the fact that duration can be represented as a fourth dimension is used to support the supposition that interference from a higher space-time entered after death might allow the record of a lifetime to be productively reconstructed." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 137. "An Unfinished Communication" is a "remarkable posthumous fantasy in which characters seek redemption by operating in the fourth dimension (time) to amend the errors they made in life." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2- 80. Hinton's work was destined to be the inspiration for other writers whose works would eclipse his own. His SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES provided ideas that may have influenced the early work of H. G. Wells and his speculations on multi-dimensionality inspired the more famous speculations of P. D. Ouspensky. See Rudy Rucker, "Life in the Fourth Dimension: C. H.

        Deutsches Privatrecht. Band 4 (Familienrecht) aus dem Nachlaß hrsg. von Karl Kroeschell und Karin Nehlsen-von Stryk.

      Berlin, Verlag von Duncker & Humblot, 1895-2010.. 4 Bde. Gr.-8vo. (1: 1895) XXXII, 897; (2: 1905) XLVI, 1021; (3: 1917) CXXIV, 1036; (4: 2010) XII, 468 S. Schöne neue Halbleinenbände. (Systematisches Handbuch der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft, begr. von Karl Binding, hrsg. von Friedrich Oetker, Abtlg. II, Tl. 3, Bde. 1-3). (Bd. 1 mit kl. Privatst.a.T., Bd. 2 mit St.a.T.).. Erste Ausgabe. - Gierke (1841-1921) war die überragende Gelehrtengestalt innerhalb der Wissenschaft vom Deutschen Recht um die Jahrhundertwende, der auch erheblichen Einfluss auf die endgültige Gestalt des BGB genommen hat. Gierke arbeitete bereits am vierten Bande seines Genossenschaftsrechts, als er 1884 einen Ruf nach Heidelberg und 1887 schließlich den nach Berlin annahm und als im Jahre 1888 der "Erste Entwurf eines Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuches für das Deutsche Reich" erschienen ist. Der stark romanistisch, insbesondere durch Bernhard Windscheid (1817-1892) als eines in "Gesetzesparagraphen gegossenes Windscheid'sches Lehrbuch" ausgerichtete Gesetzentwurf forderte eine Stellungnahme von Gierke geradezu heraus oder wie er es formulierte: "...zwang mir den Kampf für die bedrohten germanischen Gedanken im künftigen deutschen Privatrecht auf". Die grundlegende Kritik von Gierke zwang den Gesetzgeber zur Einrichtung einer Zweiten Kommission. Für Gierke hatte dies weitreichende Konsequenzen: "Meine Arbeit am Genossenschaftsrecht wurde dadurch zunächst nur zeitweilig unterbrochen. Als ich aber einige Jahre darauf den Entschluß fasste, der Aufforderung Bindings zu entsprechen und für sein Handbuch ein "deutsches Privatrecht" zu verfassen, brach ich die dogmengeschichtliche Arbeit mitten im Satze ab." Die ersten zwei Bände des deutschen Privatrechts erschienen 1895 und 1905. Nunmehr zögerte Gierke, denn auch der Verleger des Genossenschaftsrechts drängte auf Fertigstellung des vierten Bandes. Gierke entschied sich für den Abschluss des Deutschen Privatrechts, das 1917 erschienen ist und riet dem Verleger, den Druck des vierten Bandes, den er für nicht abgeschlossen hielt, wie eine Veröffentlichung aus seinem Nachlaß zu betrachten.

BACKGROUND: Thomas Hardy, OM (2 June 1840 – 11 January 1928) was an English novelist and poet. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, especially William Wordsworth. Charles Dickens was another important influence. Like Dickens, he was highly critical of much in Victorian society, though Hardy focused more on a declining rural society. While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, therefore, he gained fame as the author of novels, including Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895). However, beginning in the 1950s Hardy has been recognized as a major poet; he had a significant influence on the Movement poets of the 1950s and 1960s, including Phillip Larkin. The English author Thomas Hardy set all of his major novels in the south and southwest of England. He named the area "Wessex" after the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom that existed in this part of that country prior to the Norman Conquest. Although the places that appear in his novels actually exist, in many cases he gave the place a fictional name. For example, Hardy's hometown of Dorchester is called Casterbridge in his books, most famously in The Mayor of Casterbridge. In an 1895 preface to the novel Far From the Madding Crowd he described Wessex as "a merely realistic dream country". CONDITION: Conditions are Good+/Very Good. Some wear to edges, few marks to boards, most are very good, boards darker in person, can't find map in Vol.I, rest of books have them, small bookplate to lower inner boards L.W.

        Les Mois: Douze Compositions

      Paris: G. de Malherbe, [1895]. First edition. Folio. Delicately bound in three quarter vellum over stunning marbled paper which has diagonal patterning in background and red-ruled borders along vellum margins; spine ornately hand-calligraphed in red, blue and gold. Front printed wrapper (gray paper) bound in front. THREE SUITES OF CHROMOTYPOGRPH PLATES ('Gillotage') BY GRASSET, A TOTAL OF 36 PLATES. The first series of twelve printed in soft black and white woodcut on thicker stock India proof paper; the second series (12) in full colors on China paper, and the third series (12) also in colors printed on Japan vellum. In the early 1890's, Grasset began experimenting with a new form of printing, Chromotypography, an early form of photolithography, which was invented by one of his friends, Firmin Gillot. This calendar was printed in "Gillotage," from wood engravings, a process of manual application an acid-fast image on a zinc plate and the subsequent deepening of the nonprinting sections by etching in nitric acid. The end result is an image with vibrant, but pastel color, perfectly registered. The technique may have caught on if not for the work-intensive and ultimately very costly process. Both Arwas and Murray Robertson date this calendar to 1896, but it was offered in the May 15, 1894 issue of La Plume, (which was dedicated to Grasset's work) thus making the calendar two years older than previously thought. La Plume offered the calendar for sale on vellum (like one suite in this copy) at 5 francs and quoted it as "extremely rare." The first suite in black and white represents proof illustrations directly from the woodblocks, before color additions. The images are exquisite examples of Grasset's style, mixing symbolist women with the flowers of gardens that change with the seasons. Grasset spent nearly 20 years of his career working for La Belle Jardinier, the Parisian department store. In 1899 he designed a second calendar for them (which La Plume offered for sale for 2.5 francs), and then again in 1904. Murrary Robertson also reproduces two projects for unrealized calendars in 1914 and 1915. (p. 100)--Arwas pages 26-28; Murray Robertson page 123. The only known copy of its kind comprising all three suites of illustrations, to our knowledge. Housed in a custom beige linen clamshell box with gilt-lettered tan calf spine label. Side and bottom edges uncut. A brilliant, untarnished copy, fine in every way.

        Zur Lehre von den Schusswunden durch Kleinkalibergeschosse.

      . Bibl. Medica, Abt. E/ 2. - Cassel, Fischer, 1895, Folio, (8), 126, 1 Taf.; 52; 4; 6; 3,(1); 7; 3,(1); 4; 8; 5 (1); 4; 5,(1); 4, 5, (1), 30 Tafeln auf 13 meist doppelblattgroßen Foliotafeln, 13 Blätter Tafelerklärungen, Halbleinenband d.Zt.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe, selten vollständig angeboten! - "Erneut beobachtete Kochers Forschungsansatz zusätzlich das funktionell-pathophysiologische Element. Mittels einer Serie einleuchtender Schießversuche an Metallbüchsen, Wassertrögen sowie an isolierten Organen bewies er die Richtigkeit einer dieser früheren Vermutungen (von Baron Percy und Joseph-Francois Malgaigne): Der Hauptanteil der Geschoßwirkung war auf den hydrostatischen Gewebsdruck zurückzuführen. In nur luftgefüllten Büchsen entsprach die Größe des Ausschusses etwa derjenigen des Einschusslochs, je dichter der Büchseninhalt war, desto größer wurde das Ausschussloch. Mit Hilfe des Berner Physikers Aime Forster (1843-1926), der die nötigen ballistischen Berechnungen anstellte, zweigte er den verhältnismäßig geringen Anteil von Hitze und Zentrifugalkraft an der Geschoßwirkung. Diese Befunde nahmen der Polemik um die Dumdumgeschosse ihre Schärfe und ihr Beobachter wurde damit zu einem Pionier in der Erforschung der Wirkung moderner Infanteriegeschossen auf den menschlichen Körper. ... Da man nun einmal auf die erhöhte Anfangsgeschwindigkeit nicht verzichten wollte, forderte er gestützt auf seine Forschungen, wenigsten zur Verminderung der Geschoßwirkung ein Verbot der Verwendung weicher Geschosse und solcher mit relativ großem Durchmesser mittels internationaler Konventionen." Ulrich Thröler, Der Nobelpreisträger Theodor Kocher 1841-1917, pp.45-46 - "Obwohl seine Schussversuche heute nur noch Spezialisten bekannt sind, hatten sie nicht weniger weitreichende Folgen als seine Arbeiten für den Nobelpreis. Seine Experimente zur Ballistik waren die Grundlage für die vom Direktor der Munitionsfabrik Thun, Eduard Rubin, eingeführte Rubin-Munition, die bis heute in der ganzen Welt verbreitet ist. - Kocher wusste, dass er nichts gegen die ständig zunehmenden Mündungsgeschwindigkeiten bei neuen Waffen machen konnte. Auf den Gewinn an Treffsicherheit schnellerer Kugeln würde keine Armee verzichten wollen. Also propagierte er möglichst harte und kleinkalibrige Patronen, da diese zum geringsten hydrostatischen Druck im Gewebe führten. Schließlich, so Kocher, würden auch bei minimaler Größe der Geschosse genug ausgedehnte Körperverletzungen auftreten, auf die es ja &quote;bei der Schlichtung von Meinungsdifferenzen durch Schusswaffen&quote; hauptsächlich ankomme." Reto U. Schneider, Das Experiment -- Schüsse auf Leichen, NZZ 05/078 - Die eindrucksvollen Tafeln dokumentieren Schüsse auf Eisenplatten, Sandsteinplatten, Glasplatten, mit Marmeln oder mit Kieselsteinen gefüllten Blechgefäßen, Zielobjekte aus plastischem Material (Blei), Seifenplatten, Lehmklötze, befeuchtete Körper, Diaphysen mit zugehörigen Geschossen, Knochen-Epiphysen und Metaphysen-Schüsse, Schüsse auf Schädeldächer und Schädel, mit Gehirn, Kartoffelbrei oder Wasser gefüllt, Muskeln und Leber, und Hauptschüsse bei frischen Leichen. Diesen Versuchen verdanken noch heute weltweit viele Soldaten ihr Leben! - - Theodor Kocher "initated a new chapter in the history of the effects of a projectile in a body..." Karl G.
