        Traité clinique et thérapeutique de l'hystérie d'après l'enseignement de la Salpêtrière. Seconde partie : hystérie normale ou interparoxystique

      2 vol., [3] ff. dont un Paris, Emile Plon, Nourrit & cie, 1895, in-8, 2 vol, [3] ff. dont un portrait, 556 pp. + [2] ff, 607 pp, demi-maroquin vert de l'époque, dos à nerfs et titre doré, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION des deux volumes qui furent ajoutés à un premier, publié en 1891, et qui complètent la thèse de Gilles de la Tourette sur l'Hystérie. Seconde partie seule. L'ouvrage est écrit dans la droite ligne de l'enseignement donné à la Salpêtrière par Charcot, dont l'auteur fut l'élève, et dont il défendra la thèse par opposition à ses deux autres élèves, Freud et Babinski. En effet, Charcot définit l'Hystérie sous l'aspect de quatre stades : la période épileptoïde, la période du clownisme, la période des attitudes passionnelles et la période terminale avec souvent des hallucinations, stade qu'on observait sous hypnose. Gilles de la Tourette essaie donc de "reconnaître à l'hystérie des lois d'évolution [et] et un déterminisme particulier" et d'en faire "une maladie vraie, stable dans son incohérence qui est plus apparente que réelle". Étude bilan de l'enseignement dispensé à la Pitié. Bien complet du portrait frontispice à l'eau-forte signé Desmoulin. De nombreuses figures en noir dans le texte, dessinées par Paul Richer, illustrent le propos de la thèse. Bel exemplaire. Dos passés, très légers frottements aux coiffes et aux coins. Cachet ex-libris du Dr Carrier de Lyon. Following Charcot, p. 139-140.

        The Time Machine. An Invention (with clamshell case)

      London: Heinemann, 1895. 1st Edition . Original Cloth. Very Good/No jacket - as issued. 17 x 12 cms (7" x 4.5"). Ben Hardy (cover). PUBLISHING DETAILS: First edition of Wells's early science fiction classic, published by Heinemann of London in 1895. 152 pages, with no publisher's catalogue. Size: 17 x 12 cms (7" x 4.5"). Weight: 277g (0.6 pounds). CONDITION: I would rate this as very good. The original oatmeal cloth covers are a little age-soiled but sound (see photos). The binding is tight and secure throughout, having been resewn. The text is clean, bright and free from foxing. There are new endpapers, with no labels or inscriptions. The book is contained within a unique, custom made clamshell case (see photos). In its handsome case and sound condition, this is a particularly attractive example of a most desirable Heinemann first edition. THE NOVEL: The novel follows the adventures of a hypothetical Time Traveller who journeys into the future to find that humanity has evolved into two races: the peaceful Eloi - vegetarians who tire easily - and the carnivorous, predatory Morlocks.After narrowly escaping from the Morlocks, the Time Traveller undertakes another journey even further into the future where he finds the earth growing bitterly cold as the heat and energy of the sun wane. Horrified, he returns to the present, but soon departs again on his final journey. Wells is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel by using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposely and selectively forwards or backwards in time. The term "time machine", coined by Wells, is now almost universally used to refer to such a vehicle. The story reflects Wells's own socialist political views, his view on life and abundance, and the contemporary angst about industrial relations. It is also influenced by Ray Lankester's theories about social degeneration. This work is an early example of the Dying Earth subgenre. The portion of the novella that sees the Time Traveller in a distant future where the sun is huge and red also places The Time Machine within the realm of eschatology, i.e. the study of the end times, the end of the world, and the ultimate destiny of humankind.

        The Jungle Book & The Second Jungle Book

      London: Macmillan, 1895. First editions. about Fine. A lovely, just about Fine set of Kipling's most beloved work. Both books are very clean and bright, with just minor pushing to the spine ends, slight cocking and matching bookplates to the front paste-downs. The small flaws notwithstanding, an extremely pleasing set. Housed in a custom cloth case with each book in a separate chemise. Case fairly worn. Based on folk tales and legends that Kipling learned during his childhood in India and written while in Vermont. This work of several inter-related short stories met with huge success upon publication and continues to enthrall readers of all ages to this day. According to Professor Edwin L. Miller, their publication "caused even severe critics of his previous work to admit that he is a writer of inspired genius." Kipling was the first English-language writer, and the youngest ever, to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. about Fine.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2pp on one 8vo sheet, on first and fourth pages, Atlanta, GA, 1 September, n.y.(ca 1895)

      Autograph Letter Signed, 2pp on one 8vo sheet, on first and fourth pages, Atlanta, GA, 1 September, n.y. (ca. 1895). Joel Chandler Harris writes a condolence letter to his editor, Francis (Frank) Jackson Garrison ((848-1916, son of Abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison) on the death of Henry Oscar Houghton who died on August 25, 1895. Houghton (1823-1895) was an American printer and publisher, proprietor of the Riverside Press and partner in the publishing firms of Hurd and Houghton; Houghton, Osgood & Company; and Houghton, Mifflin & Company. Houghton Mifflin published many of Joel Chandler Harris' works. To Mr. Garrison. "I was very much shocked to hear of the death of Mr. Houghton. I met him but once - he was kind enough to come to my house but I saw that he was a man to be lived on closer acquaintance. I sincerely trust that his death will make no change in the firm that has dealt so kindly and so generously with me. McClure is not after "Aaron" at all. What he wants is the nine new "Thimblefinger" stories that I sent you this summer to patch out "Mr. Rabbit at Home." Now you can use your own judgement [sic] and pleasure about that. I didn't think he can work them off before you are ready to issue the book. Nine weeks would carry the matter to the first of November, and my understanding is that you will get out Mr. Rabbit about the first of November. If you are willing for McClure to use the nine stories my terms are $20 a thousand words, payable weekly. But don't consider me in the matter at all. Consult our own desires. At the head of this paper you will see what use I made of Herford's cute monogram. Yours faithfully, Joel Chandler Harris." In his last sentence, he refers to the rabbit at the head of this stationery which is composed of the initials of Chandler's three-part name. The monogram was designed by Oliver Herford, the British-born, American humorist writer, artist and illustrator who illustrated all of Harris' children's books referred to in this letter. Harris refers to a number of his children's books, including The Story of Aaron which he was hoping would be published in November of 1895 and was, indeed published that month. He also discusses MClure wanting "the nine new Thimblefinger stories…." He is referring to S. S McClure, founder of McClure's Magazine, an American illustrated monthly founded in 1893 by McClure and John Sanborn Phillips. The magazine was known for social reform as well as for publishing serialized novels by the leading writers of the day, including Joel Chandler Harris. In 1893 the magazine had published "The Comedy of War.

        Jude the Obscure

      London: James R. Osgood, McIlvaine & Co.,, [1895]. With an Etching by H. Macbeth-Raeburn and a Map of Wessex. Octavo. Original vertical-ribbed green cloth, gilt-lettered spine, gilt roundel of Hardy's monogram within a floral wreath on front cover, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Etched frontispiece (with captioned tissue guard) by H. Macbeth-Raeburn, map at the end. Mid-20th-century bookseller's receipt (George's of Bristol) laid in. Spine gently rolled and a touch creased, extremities lightly bumped, a few very faint marks to covers, the rear with a couple of light scores, contents toned, front inner hinge superficially cracked, a small numbers of signatures faintly dog-eared, a few trivial marks to margins, short closed tear to bottom edge of sig. K3, the text unaffected. A very good copy. First edition in book form, first state, with all 17 pages noted by Purdy retaining their pagination: uncommon thus. Hardy's last novel originally appeared as a bowdlerised serial in Harper's Magazine from December 1894 to November 1895, when the European and American editions were published simultaneously in London and New York, and post-dated 1896. "The records of neither printer nor publisher have survived in the case of Jude, but from Osgood, McIlvaine's advertisement ? (Saturday Review, 15 February 1896), it is apparent that there was more than one impression of the novel. It is difficult to say if these are distinguishable. Signature A?H do exist in two distinct states, however?with page numbers on partially blank pages and (conforming to usage throughout the remainder of the volume) without these. These 8 signatures are often found mixed (first and second state) ? [but] all are first statein the first state in Hardy's own copy, 5 presentation copies inscribed by him in November 1895, and in the British Musuem, Bodleian, and Cambridge copies ? Signatures A-H in the first state may possibly be an indication, therefore, of the first impression" (Purdy).

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1895 - 1895 Wisden Rebound Like Hardbacks , Special.

      1895. This is a very special 1895 Wisden, rebound by Wisden in the middle of the 20th Century to mimic an 1896 hardback, a quirky Wisden that will appeal to some. The similarities to a hardback are that the paste downs are yellow (with a Liverpool cricket club stamp) , the gilt on the covers and spine are identical to that of an 1896. It is slightly smaller by 1/8th inch , smoky top to page block and severe foxing around photo plate, the uniqueness is what will appeal. Hard to price up but Gorringes sold a similar copy (spine less like an 1896) for ?750+20% and selling for less than we purchased it for.

        An Atlas of the Fertilization and Karyokinesis of the Ovum

      New York and London: Macmillan, 1895. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. Oversize quarto. vi, [2], 32 pp. With 10 photogravure plates depicting 40 varying stages of Cell and Embryonic Development, plus 20 figures and diagrams in the text. Original blue buckram, gilt (front cover bumped at top of spine). A tight and attractive copy. First and only edition of E.B. Wilson's ground-breaking work, justly celebrated on account of its astonishingly early synthesis of Cytogenetics, the study of inheritance in relation to the structure and function of chromosomes. This volume holds important original insights into cytology and early cell biochemistry, elegantly presented 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 rediscovery 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.
