        [Broadside]: Coming Soon! Parsons & Pool's Original Uncle Tom's Cabin and Tennessee Jubilee Singers. The Only Company on the Road to-day presenting the old-time manuscript version of Uncle Tom's Cabin

      Prov[idence], R.I.: Whatcheer Print. [circa 1895?]. Tall broadside printed on purple paper. Illustrated with a composite wood engraving of scenes from the play. 9.25" x 23". A couple of tiny nicks and holes, near fine. A broadside advertising the dramatic production of Uncle Tom's Cabin by Parsons & Pool's Famous Ideal Uncle Tom's Cabin Company and Tennessee Jubilee Singers. Dramatic and musical versions of Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin were produced almost immediately upon publication of the novel in 1852 and, like the book, became an instant success with the public, propelling the book's sales to even greater heights. These numerous "Tom Shows," as they became known, continued to be produced for more than 50 years after the book's release.Little seems to be known about the Parsons & Pool version of Uncle Tom's Cabin aside from some indications the company toured between 1893-1895, in the New England and Mid-Atlantic area. Accompanying the production were the Tennessee Jubilee Singers. The name suggests they may have be related to the African-Americans singing group The Fisk Jubilee Singers from Fisk University that brought jubilee singing into prominence but perhaps more likely the group was assembled for this particular production and given a similarly sounding name to attract customers. Whether they performed during the production or in support of it is not clear. .

        Studien über Hysterie

      Franz Deuticke, Leipzig & Vienna 1895 - Beginning of PsychoanalysisFreud, Sigmund (1856-1939) and Josef Breuer (1842-1925). Studien über Hysterie. [6], 269pp. Leipzig & Vienna: Franz Deuticke, 1895. Half morocco ca. 1895, extremities and corners slightly rubbed; preserved in cloth drop-back box. Fine.First Edition. Studies in Hysteria, which gives the first detailed account of the free-association method, is customarily regarded as the starting-point of psychoanalysis. Breuer had discovered the "cathartic" method of curing hysteria in the early 1880s while treating the patient who would later be immortalized as "Anna O."; this patient, who exhibited a myriad of severe hysterical symptoms, found that the symptoms would disappear when she told Breuer the details of their onset. (Jones gives "Anna O.," whose real name was Bertha Pappenheim, a large share of the credit for inventing what she called the "talking cure.") Freud learned of this interesting case from Breuer shortly after its termination in June 1882; it made a strong impression on him, and a few years later he began using a combination of hypnosis and the cathartic method in his own neurological practice. From this Freud gradually developed the method of free association, in which the patient was encouraged to say whatever came into his mind however "nonsensical" or "irrelevant," since Freud believed that the patient's statements provided clues about the network of associations already established in his mind, and would thus lead the therapist to the source of the patient's neurosis. "It was through devising the new method that Freud was enabled to penetrate into the previously unknown realm of the unconscious proper and to make the profound discoveries with which his name is imperishably associated" (Jones, Life and Work of Sigmund Freud, I, p. 265).

        Contribution à l'étude de l'atrophie musculaire progressive type Duchenne-Aran.

      Paris, Progrès Médical, F. Alcan. 1895 - In-8, (6), 159, (3) pp., 6 fig. in-t., 4 planches lithographiées h.t. (dont 3 en couleur), broché, non coupé, très bel exemplaire. Edition commerciale de la thèse de doctorat en médecine de l¿auteur, soutenue devant Fulgence Raymond, Joffroy, Brissaud et Ballet. Jean Baptiste Charcot (1867-1936), né à Neuilly-sur-Seine, fils du grand neurologue J.M. Charcot, dont il fut l¿interne, abandonnera la médecine, après avoir été chef de clinique de Raymond, pour se consacrer à l¿exploration et à l¿océanographie. Il acquit la célébrité comme explorateur polaire à bord du « Pourquoi Pas ». Il fut membre de l¿Académie de médecine et de l¿Académie des sciences. Dans cette thèse, devenue rare, Charcot résume les travaux antérieurs sur cette affection et poursuit l¿¿uvre de son père (décédé deux ans avant la soutenance de cette thèse), cherchant à différencier cette affection de la sclérose latérale amyotrophique (« maladie de Charcot »). Des observations détaillées sont rapportées. Garrison & Morton, 4758 ; G. Lanchou & C. Veron, Un évadé de la médecine : Jean-Baptiste Charcot (1867-1936), Histoire des sciences médicales, 1980, 14, 43-50 : " Le but de cette étude est de démontrer que la maladie désignée sous le nom d'atrophie musculaire type Duchenne-Aran est une entité anatomique et clinique distincte des autres formes d'atrophie musculaire. En effet, la maladie de Duchenne-Aran, en 1895, semblait ne plus exister en tant que maladie, tant on avait trouvé d'autres "entités morbides au détriment de ce type" et, entre autres en 1865, la " maladie de Charcot" fait l'objet d'une première publication, pour être baptisée sclérose latérale amyotrophique en 1872. Jean-Baptiste Charcot avait bien démontré dans sa thèse que ce que nous appelons maintenant le syndrome dAran-Duchenne était commun à plusieurs maladies aux causes différentes. Maladies qui furent débrouillées et classées du vivant de son père. Il participa à ce travail colossal en défendant, avec une grande justesse, la mémoire de l'illustre neurologue."

        Broadside or poster]: Taffy's Revised Football Rules

      McIntosh Publishing Co., New York 1895 - Broadside poster advertising the 1895 book. 12.5" x 18". Illustrated by F. Richard Anderson. Printed in black with a whimsical football illustration on pale green paper. Very good with small chips to the extremities affecting no printing, and a small piece of tape on the reverse (to no purpose). The illustration depicts a man in a fleur-de-lys uniform with a leather(?) nose guard, opposed in the distance by some rather goofy looking football players (some with "Y," "H," "C," and "P" -- presumably for Yale, Harvard, Columbia, and Princeton or Penn). Anderson was a very successful Broadway costume designer, which probably explains the *tres sportif* uniform. The poster for a very early football book, following Walter Camp's *American Football* (considered the first book on the sport) by four years. Rare. *OCLC* locates one copy of the 36 page book at the University Club in New York City, and no copies of this poster.

Stephanos Carathéodory, was an Ottoman Greek who had studied law in Berlin and then served as secretary in the Ottoman embassies in Berlin, Stockholm and Vienna. Stephanos had married Despina Petrocochino, who came from a Greek family of businessmen who had settled in Marseille. At the time of his son Constantin's birth, the family were in Berlin since Stephanos had been appointed there two years earlier as First Secretary to the Ottoman Legation. The Carathéodory family, originally from Bosnochori or Vyssa, was well established and respected in Constantinople, and its members held many important government positions. Stephanos Carathèodory was the father of Constantin Carathéodory (or Constantine Karatheodori) (Greek: ???sta?t???? ?a?a?e?d???) (13 September 1873 &#150; 2 February 1950) was a Greek mathematician. He made significant contributions to the theory of functions of a real variable, the calculus of variations, and measure theory. His work also includes important results in conformal representations and in the theory of boundary correspondence. In 1909, Carathéodory pioneered the Axiomatic Formulation of Thermodynamics along a purely geometrical approach. Known correspondence of Carathéodory-Einstein can be seen as facsimile in Einstein Archives Online (11 items). Three letters concern mathematics and these are printed in vol.8 of Einstein's Collected Works (Princeton Univ. Press 1987) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

The fourteen double page plates (28 pp) and the front and back covers (4 pages) are not numbered. The front covers are a single page color woodblock print. The cover woodblock print and the 14 internal double page woodblock prints all have the artist's seal (han). In total the two books contain 112 pages which include 28 double page color woodblock prints and 48 numbered pages of text. There are 38 (18 in volume 1 and 20 in volume 2) small text type black and white woodcut illustrations of birds, animals and plants interspersed throughout the book. The front covers are nicely illustrated in color. The back covers have two small decorative illustrations (crests). While the front and back covers are folded pages, they are affixed over a stiff but pliable inner piece. This makes the front and back folded pages (covers) much firmer than the internal folded pages which are not reinforced. ~ Condition. Both books are in Very Good condition. The covers, front and back - inner and outer, are moderately stained and soiled. This condition is probably caused by the adhesive used to apply the folded pages forming the covers to an inner stiffener paper. There is pencil writing on the inside of the front cover of Volume 1. Following the covers and adjacent pages, the books are in Fine condition with no staining, foxing, marking or soiling. All pages are uncut/unsevered at the fold and there are no tears to the pages. A solid and well preserved pair of books. ~~ More information, to include digital pics, available on request

Loose hielt stets eine große Auswahl von Intarsien-Probefülltafeln in seinem Lager vorrätig... Mit einer goldenen Medaille wurde 1895 in Lübeck eine Eichentruhe ausgezeichnet, die J. R. Loose in ihrem Aufbau und den Hermenpilastern nach alten Vorbildern des Hamburger Museums für Kunst und Gewerbe angefertigt hatte, aber mit Intarsienfüllungen versah, die den Eindruck farbiger Bilder erweckten...

        Kiepert's grosser Hand-Atlas Statistischer Text von Dr. Paul Lippert und M. Busemann. Dritte Auflage.

      Berlin: Geographische Verlagshandlung Dietrich Reimer, [c. 1895]. - Folio, (20 1/8 x 13 1/8 inches). 45 double-page chromolithographed maps. Handsome binding of modern half green morocco, original publisher's green cloth boards, gilt. Provenance: With the bookplate of Christopher Henry Beaumont Pease, Lord Wardington (1924-2005), his sale, Sotheby's, October 18, 2005. Third edition, first published in 1893. Includes 45 beautifully chromolithographed double-page maps, showing the current political boundaries throughout the world. This atlas features several interesting maps of the Americas and Australia. One map of the United States delineates the various states and territories with colored outlines, but incorrectly identifies Alaska as a state rather than a territory. A map of the "Continent of Australia and New Zealand" identifies the various regions as "Englische Colonien," "Französische," "Niederländische," "Portugiesische," and "Deutsche." Another shows "Eastern North America" with insets of the "Northeastern States" (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland) and Niagara. Kiepert is widely recognized as one of the more important scholarly cartographers of the second half of the nineteenth century. He was particularly interested in the historical geography of the classical world as well as the Ottoman Empire, "where Kiepert travelled numerous times, gathering enough data to produce several major maps of the Ottoman world between the 1840s and 1890s. Kiepert was also responsible for some of the first detailed ethnic maps of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Balkan Peninsula. In the course of many years, he compiled maps of much of the rest of the world as well, in addition to cartographic materials for schools "Kiepert's maps are almost invariably clear and easy to read, and they are as accurate as the scholarship of the day permitted. His maps of the historical geography of the classical world have inevitably come to seem a bit old-fashioned in light of later research, but his maps of the Ottoman Empire and surrounding countries remain extraordinarily valuable records of conditions in the period when they were compiled" (University of Chicago Map Collection online).
