        Ueber penetrirende Herzwunden und Herznaht (pp.315-329).

      - Arch. klin. Chir., 55. - Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1897, 8°, V, 899 pp., Abb. im Text, 16 Taf., Halbledereinband der Zeit. ERSTE AUSGABE - MEILENSTEIN DER HERZCHIRURGIE - ERSTE HERZNAHT BEIM MENSCHEN! - "Kein anderes Organ des Menschen war lange Zeit mit so vielen Tabus behaftet wie das Herz, und noch im Jahre 1896 äußerte Stephan Paget die Meinung: ".keine neue Methode und keine neue Entdeckung kann die naturgegebenen Schwierigkeiten überwinden, die eine Herzwunde mit sich bringt"." Seit Ludwig Rehn in Frankfurt erstmals eine Herzstichwunde erfolgreich vernähte, gilt das "als Beginn der Herzchirurgie". Diese Tat wurde vollbracht in einer Ära, in der kein geringerer als Billroth sagte:"Ein Chirurg, der die Naht einer Herzwunde versuchen wollte, sollte den Respekt seiner Kollegen sicher verlieren". "Rehn selbst war, als er den Eingriff wagte, noch stark mit der Vorstellung behaftet, daß eine so einschneidende Manipulation am Herzen wie eine durch die Ventrikelmuskulatur gestochene Naht mit irreversilblem Kammerflimmern beantwortet werden müßte." -cf. F.W.Hehrlein - "Paget's prediction ("Surgery of the heart has probably reached the limits set by nature to all surgery.) was shattered on September 9, 1896, by Ludwig Rehn of Franfort, Germany. Rehn was born in 1849. In 1870 he interrupted his university career, volunteered as a Hussar, and accompanied the German armies into France. Upon his return to Germany he obtained his doctorate at Marburg. During his liefetime he made many contributions to surgery, but his most famous was the first successful suture of a human heart wound." - "A man, aged 22, was stabbed with a knife in the fourth interspace, three fingerbreadths to the left of the sternal margin. After a period of unconsciousness, which lasted three hours, the patient revived sufficiently to take about 300 paces, when he fell to the ground. He was later found almost lifeless and was taken to the hospital. The first day following the injury the sensorium cleared, and the pulse became stronger and the dyspnea developed and the operation was performed. - An incision 14 cm long was made in the fourth left interspace and fifth rib was divided in the mammary line. The pleura was opened. Blood distended the pericardium and oozed from the stab wound which entered it. The pericardium was opened widely and the blood within it was removed. A wound 1.5 cm long was found in the right ventricle from which there was active bleeding. This was controlled by placing a finger over the wound, but difficulty was experienced in keeping the finger properly in place. There was lees bleeding during diastole than during systole. The wound was closed with three silk sutures placed during several diastolic phases. The pulse was immediately improved. After the blood was removed from the pleural and pericardial cavities an iodoform gauze drain was placed in each. - The patient recovered and was able to return to work." - "This marked the beginning of cardiac surgery; for the first time a surgeon had successfully operated on a living human heart." !

        1895 Wisden Rebound Like Hardbacks , Special.

      Hi and Welcome to our Store. We have sold many rare Wisdens through WisdenAuction so we are listing a few more spare early hardbacks and a full run of 1897-1948 in hardback, please enjoy them. -------------------------------------------------------------------- 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. Please see the photographs, More Photos on request. Payment: Card, BACS or Cheque Please but paypal is OK.

        Nate Salsbury, Buffalo Bill Cody's show manager, writes an angry business letter to George T. Beck, the Shoshone Irrigation Company field manager during the construction of the Cody Canal through the Big Horn Basin, referred to in this letter as "the ditch"

      New York City, New York, April 13, 1897. 8.5" x 11". "Autograph Letter Signed ""Nate Salsbury,"" 1 page, 8.5"" x 11"". On ""Buffalo Bill's Wild West"" pictorial letterhead, Department of Publicity, New York City, April 13, 1897. Usual folds, Fine condition. To George T. Beck. In full, ""Col. Cody received the information that you intend to engage a typewriter again this summer. In our opinion such service is not necessary to the company's business and we refuse to have such an expense charged to the company's account. As we understand the matter, the work on the ditch was to commence on the first of April, and we learn from latest advices the work has not yet begun. This is a hardship for Col Cody as he has had his teams taken up to prepare them for the work and they are idle.""Nathan ""Nate"" Salsbury (1846-1902) was producer and manager of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. He joined the U. S. Army while still in his teens, first as a drummer boy and eventually as a soldier with the 89th Illinois Regiment of Infantry, fighting in Georgia, Tennessee, and Texas. After the war, he became an actor in various stock companies, appeared for a time with his own troupe, Salsbury's Troubadours, then retired from performing in 1887. Meanwhile, in 1883, Salsbury helped launch Buffalo Bill's Wild West, an outdoor extravaganza that dramatized frontier life, built around the personality of onetime soldier, scout and hunter William F. ""Buffalo Bill"" Cody. The show, a worldwide success, outlived Salsbury who died at age 56 on Christmas Eve, 1902.The Big Horn Basin irrigation venture became the Shoshone Irrigation Company, the principal vehicle through which Cody and several partners attempted to finance, construct, and operate the Cody Canal (referred to as ""the ditch"" by Salsbury in this letter) from 1896 to 1907 when the Company relinquished control of the project. George T. Beck (1856-1943), the recipient of these letters, was the company's field manager during the construction process. Salisbury was an investor and a Director of the company."

        Theatre de la Renaissance. Sarah Bernhard't La Samaritaine.

      Poster for Sarah Bernhardt's appearance in Rostand's play 'La Samaritaine' at the Theatre de la Renaissance'. Paris: Champenois 1897. Published in "Les Maitres de l'Affiche", 1899. Plate no. 166.. Les Maîtres de l'Affiche (The Masters of the Poster) refers to 256 colour lithographic plates used to create a very significant art publication during the Belle Époque in Paris, France. The collection, reproduced from the original works of ninety-seven artists in a smaller format, was put together by Jules Chéret, the father of poster art.By the 1890's the streets of French cities were enlivened by large, colourful posters. The poster had not only caught the fancy of the public, but its best examples were already being regarded as true works of art (specifically, as fine prints) to be exhibited, reviewed in journals, collected and reproduced in a more manageable form. In the last five years of the 19th century, Imprimerie Chaix was to play a great part in codifying, hallowing and perpetuating the ebullient spirit of the Belle Epoque. The renowned set of 256 prints were created by Imprimerie Chaix, forever to be known as a set as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche. Each print was rendered as a separate sheet measuring 11 x 15 inches. [27.9 x 38.1 cm]. The set was compiled in a unique way: Every month for 60 months - from December 1895 through November 1900 - subscribers received a wrapper containing four consecutively numbered prints. On 16 occasions (each of the five Decembers, each of the Junes, and the March and September of the final three years) the monthly wrapper also contained a bonus plate, not a poster reproduction but a specially created lithograph. The compilation of this set of original prints makes up the complete suite known as Les Maîtres de l'Affiche

        BOOK OF THE THOUSAND NIGHTS AND A NIGHT. Translated from the Arabic by Captain Sir R.F. Burton. Reprinted from the original edition and edited by Leonard C. Smithers. Illustrated by a Series of Seventy-one Original Illustrations Reproduced From the Original Pictures in Oils Specially Painted by Albert Letchford

      London H.S Nichols & Co. 1897 - 12 Volumes. This is the RARE full morocco, gilt extra, "Illustrated Library Edition" according to Penzer's designation (see p. 117-122 for a discussion of the various editions). With the 71 illustrations by Albert Letchford, including a portrait of Burton. Also issued with reproductions of the title-pages from the original Benares Kamashastra edition. Large 8vo, original full dark black levant morocco elaborately gilt with Arabic motifs in the panels of the spines, the covers with an intricate gilt all-over panel design featuring Arabic designs and calligraphy, t.e.g. A fine very beautiful set, spines perfectly restored, virtually without indication. IN THE RARE FULL DARK BLACK LEVANT MOROCCO GILT EXTRA BINDING. This edition conforms to the "Illustrated Library Edition" that Penzer describes. It was actually produced for the Grolier Society, though their name does not appear anywhere. It includes, as the title-page states, the seventy-one illustrations by Letchford, and was issued in four binding styles, this being the rarest and most elaborate: Style D, though in a black colour not known to the bibliographer. "For many years," Penzer mentions, "I thought that this full morocco issue never really appeared, but a copy was sold at Sotheby's in November 1920" (p. 121). Apparently he never saw a copy. Interestingly enough, the illustrations to "The Arabian Nights" were bound in and issued with the text for the first time by Nichols as here. Penzer describes those illustrations being first inserted within the "Library Edition," that English printing, modeled after the Benares Edition and to which he thus ascribes the name "Illustrated Library Edition." One conjectures that only a very small number, perhaps 25 or less of these fully bound and decorated sets might have been issued. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Il testo è sostanzialmente inalterato, ma con numerose correzioni e aggiornamenti, il tutto sotto la direzione del Dr. Carl Richard Hennicke. Tutte le figure delle tavole (molto belle) sono state ridisegnate e presentano le varie specie di uccelli nel loro ambiente naturale. In aggiunta alle tavole degli uccelli vi sono raffigurate quelle delle uova, provenienti dalla collezione di Eugène Rey. Complessivamente sono illustrati 2500 esemplari di volatili (nelle varie stagioni e stadi di sviluppo) e come fa notare giustamente Casy Wood, si tratta della più vasta e dotta opera mai prodotta di ornitologia del centro - Europa. Da segnalare nel vol. IX, la tavola 25, raffigurante due specie di oche (Anser fabalis e Anser brachyrhynchus). La tavola non è cromolitografata, ma è un bellissimo acquarello coevo, con la firma sulla destra in basso del celebre pittore naturalista J.G. Keulemans.

        Love is Enough, or the Freeing of Pharamond: A Morality

      (Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1897. Brown, Hannah. Quarto. 91pp. One of 300 copies on paper. Illustrated with two full-page woodcuts designed by Edward Burne-Jones and engraved by W. H. Hooper, and numerous ornamental initials and borders by Morris. The penultimate book of the Kelmscott Press, and one of only two printed with the color blue. Published one year after Morris' death and one year before the Press ceased operation, Love Is Enough is considered by many to be the greatest Kelmscott book, after the Chaucer. In a breathtaking designer binding by award-winning artist Hannah Brown of full calf with blind- and gold-tooling, colored leather onlays, and bright embroidery. The binder drew inspiration from the cycle of nature that features so prominently in the text, as well as from Morris's own designs for fabrics, borders, and wallpapers. In particular, she based the design on "Trellis," a wallpaper by Morris inspired by the Medieval-style gardens at Red House. Brown leather onlays, which were damped and pressed to create a wood-grain pattern, form the trellis itself, with gold-covered brass tacks at each intersection. Twisting around this framework are thorny vines, crowned with red roses, and careful embroidery lines the veins of the greenery. Charming blue beetles alight on the flowers and leaves, and metallic thread gives them just a touch of true-to-life shine. The focal point of the binding, however, are four densely embroidered birds flitting among the branches. Brown chose the four birds to represent the four seasons; for spring - a Goldfinch, summer - a Housemartin, autumn - a Serin and winter - a Brambling. Leaf-patterned paper is used for the doublures, and one cluster of leaves inside each cover has the veins cut away to reveal gold leaf beneath. The textblock is sewn onto stubs, and both the stubs and headbands are colored the same blue and red as the text initials. The book is housed in a teak wood box with a frosted perspex lid, so that the front cover of the book can be partially seen through it. A title label crosses the center of the box, decorated with leaves and a beetle-laden flower. The title is cut-away to reveal more gold leaf and is printed in the same font as in the original book. The box closes with a gold clasp. Brown was elected a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2009. Before becoming a bookbinder, she studied three-dimensional crafts, such as metalwork, textiles, and printmaking, which she incorporates into her binding designs. In 2014, she won the Mansfield Medal for Best Book in Competition in the Designer Bookbinders annual competition. Altogether a glorious binding on an important text.
