        THE PINK FAIRY BOOK

      1897. With Numerous Illustrations by H.J. Ford. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1897. Original pink cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all page edges gilt. First Edition of the fifth of the twelve "Fairy Books" edited by Andrew Lang, each one bound in the appropriate color cloth. This one follows BLUE (1889), RED, GREEN and YELLOW, and would in turn be followed by GREY, VIOLET, CRIMSON, BROWN, ORANGE, OLIVE and LILAC (1910). This volume contains about forty fairy tales, including "The Cat's Elopement," "The Snow-queen," "The Cunning Shoemaker," "The Wounded Lion," "The Troll's Daughter" and "The Merry Wives."~This copy is in near-fine condition -- with the almost-unavoidable problem with this particular color, which is that the pink spine is faded (though the gilt there remains rather bright); this copy does not have a tissue between frontispiece and title page, but that is not necessarily a bad thing, since such tissues typically turn up heavily foxed. NCBEL 1108.

        THE PHYSICIAN

      London: Printed at the Chiswick Press, 1897. n. Hardcover. A Special Presentation Binding Given to Queen Mary. 222 x 146 mm (8 3/4 x 5 3/4"). 4 p.l., 78 pp., [1] leaf. ESPECIALLY APPEALING DARK GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY THE DOVES BINDERY (stamp-signed and dated "18 C-S 97" on rear turn-in), covers with double gilt fillet border accented along the sides with dots and leaves, each of the four corners with a bouquet of tulips arising from a triangle of stippling; raised bands, spine compartments tooled with a long-stemmed tulip on a stippled ground, turn-ins with three gilt rules and tulip-and-leaf cornerpieces, all edges gilt. In an old (the original?) fleece-lined black folding cloth box with printed title label on spine. With two plates showing ground plans for Act II and Act III. Front pastedown with the engraved bookplate of Princess Mary; first preliminary blank inscribed by the author "To H.R.H. / Princess [Victoria] Mary [Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes] Duchess of Teck / from her obedient servant / Henry Arthur Jones / in grateful remembrance / of her kind presence at / the first performance of / 'The Physician' March 25th / 1897"; second preliminary blank with autographs of the cast of the play; third preliminary blank with the later (re-gifting) inscription "To Mr. Henry J. Bell / in remembrance of / Princess Mary [Adelaide of Cambridge] / from / Victoria Mary." Below the inscription are the autographs of the princess' three brothers, Adolphus of Teck (signed simply "Teck"), Francis of Teck, and Alexander George of Teck. For the binding: Tidcombe 299. The typical offsetting from turn-ins, but A VERY FINE COPY--immaculate internally, and the binding perfectly preserved, the leather almost mirror-like in its luster. This is an elegant Doves binding, probably commissioned by the author for presentation to Princess Mary of Teck, the future Queen Consort to King George V, and enhanced with important autographs. The elegant design of the exterior is recognizable at once as Doves work, mainly because it features Cobden-Sanderson's most frequently used tulip tool, 3b, employed here (as typical) with two small dots tooled above. And as for the interior, this item has what Charles Whittingham and his Chiswick Press normally provide: high quality press work and fine textured paper with ample margins. A popular English dramatist, Henry Arthur Jones (1851-1929) had his detractors. As his daughter writes in "Taking the Curtain Call: The Life and Letters of Henry Arthur Jones," Oscar Wilde declared that "there are three rules for writing plays. The first rule is not to write like Henry Arthur Jones; the second and third rules are the same." Despite Wilde's deadly witticism, "The Physician" is not without its merits. It premiered at London's Criterion Theatre on 25 March 1897, with a cast reading like a "Who's Who" of the English theater; one of our cast signatories is Marion Terry, who played leading roles in more than 125 plays. As the wife of King-Emperor George V, Victoria Mary Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes of Teck (1867-1953) was Queen Consort of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, and Empress of India, and before her husband's accession, she was successively Duchess of York, Duchess of Cornwall, and Princess of Wales. (Her lengthy concatenation of names suitably reflects the exalted nature of these various titles.) After George V's death in 1936, she became queen mother when her eldest son Edward became king-emperor, but to her bitter disappointment, he abdicated later the same year to marry the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson.

        A collection of 185 very fine, mostly hand-coloured, drawings of Coleoptera collected by the French naturalist August Sallé (1820-1896) in Central and South America and the West Indies, preserved in a contemporary 4to (323 x 235mm) half calf binding.

      This highly interesting collection belonged to René Oberthür and is probably put together by him. On the first leaf we find the following note written by him 'Les dessins originaux et planches d'insectes contenus dans ce volume proviennent en totalité de mon vieil ami Auguste Sallé; je les ai acquis à la vente qui a eu lieu bien après sa mort, fin février 1897. Rennes 1897 René Oberthür'. The very fine drawings, apart from a very few which are outline drawings, are superbly hand-coloured and by the best artists of the period and many are signed by the artist. The following names are found: Poujade, Wapler, Nicolet, Mignaux, Vaillant, Dumeril. The size of the drawings vary and the large drawings are 17 x 27 cm. and the smaller ones 6,5 x 10 cm. A few are dated, the earliest one is dated 1859 and the last one 1878. Occasionally the country or place of origin is mentioned such as: Mexique, Haiti, Amer. Mérid., Ste Lucie, St Domingue, Texas, Honduras, Jamaique, Guadeloupe./Auguste Salle (1820-1896) was a French traveller and entomologist, specializing in Coleoptera. He travelled the Southern States of the USA, Central America, especially Mexico, and Venezuala and the West Indies. After his return he set up as a natural history and insect dealer and had close connections with the important entomologists of the day such as René Oberthür. "F.D. Godman and O. Salvin made use of Salle's Central American collections in compilation of 'Biologia Centrali Americana' (1879-1915). He was a Fellow of the Société Entomologique de France, and of the Entomological Society of London" (Harvey, Gilbert and Martin p. 179)./ /Provenance: René Oberthür famous French entomologist, with his note on first leaf. The work was purchased by Kikumaro Okano from our company in 1971 and was advertised in our catalogue 159.

        Die Wertbemessung des Diptherieheilserums und deren theoretischen Grundlagen.

      - Klin. Jb., 6. - Jena, Verlag von Gustav Fischer, 1897, 8°, 34 pp., original broschiertes Exemplar; aus ganz leicht fleckig, innen sauberes und unbeschnittenes Exemplar dieses Klassikers. First Edition - Extreme rare offprint of this Milestone of Immunology - "The standardization of diphtheria antitoxins and their theoretical foundation! - Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915) improved Behring's diphtheria antitoxin and established an international standard for this and other antitoxins. This was the beginning of the concept of biological standardization. The first exposition of Ehrlich's side-chain theory appeared in this paper. - "In life and death, Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915) was a controversial and influential scientist. His novel and elaborate biochemical theories invited severe criticism by his fellow researchers, yet his concepts dominated immunology for decades. He was condemned by clergy for interfering with God's justice against sinners by developing the syphilis-curing arsenical Salvarsan, also known as "606," but he opened the frontier of systemic chemotherapy against infectious disease. He shared the Nobel honors of 1908 with Elie Metchnikoff for his work in immunochemistry and his name was heralded around the world. Thus, the Nazi attempt long after his death to make him an unperson, to use the Orwellian Newspeak, was sheer folly. German bureaucrats changed the name of the street that honored him, they destroyed his biographies, and they expunged his mention in the new textbooks of German science. Ehrlich's great offense to the Third Reich to justify such actions was that he was a Jew. Nevertheless, while other tombstones in the Jewish Cemetery of Frankfurt were defiled, his grave site with its prominent column-mounted Star of David and medical caduceus was unharmed. - Ehrlich was more than a great chemotherapist and immunologist. A pioneer hematologist, he differentiated the various blood cells and discovered the tissue mast cell; an oncologist, he examined the growth dynamics and transplantation of tumors; a stain technologist, he was able to color nerve cells and to detect the tubercle bacillus in tissues by developing the acid-fast dye technique; a clinical chemist, he discovered the diazo reaction and found a useful test for bilirubin. However, Ehrlich is honored here as a genius of immunochemistry and one of the most colorful characters of the science, literally as well as figuratively. - Ehrlich was a cousin of the pathologist Carl Weigert, who helped introduce him to the newly developed aniline dyes when Ehrlich began his own medical training at the University of Breslau. He later transferred to the University of Strassbourg, and finally received the M.D. at the University of Leipzig in 1878. He next went to Berlin's Charite Hospital. Ehrlich was never offered a professorship, but in 1889 Robert Koch asked him to join his laboratory. He had previously met Koch in 1876, when the bacteriologist came to Ferdinand Cohn's Botanical Department at Breslau to demonstrate the life cycle of the anthrax bacillus. Koch's institute in Berlin was one of the few places where classic Prussian military medical officers and Jewish physicians could work together in friendship without restrictive barriers. In 1896 Ehrlich received from Friedrich Althoff of the Prussian Ministry of Ecclesiastical, Educational and Medical Affairs the appointment as the director of the small, insufficiently funded State Institute for Serum Research and Serum Testing in Steglitz. Althoff soon realized that Ehrlich deserved better, and in 1899 he helped him gain the directorship of the Institute of Experimental Therapy in Frankfurt-am-Main and later the directorship of the adjacent Georg Speyerhaus, where Ehrlich at last received the freedom and funding he needed for his creative work. Later, Ehrlich described success in science as due to "Geduld, Geschick, Geld, und Glück"-patience, talent, money, and luck. - Indeed, money was one of the issues that broke .

Koch's institute in Berlin was one of the few places where classic Prussian military medical officers and Jewish physicians could work together in friendship without restrictive barriers. In 1896 Ehrlich received from Friedrich Althoff of the Prussian Ministry of Ecclesiastical, Educational and Medical Affairs the appointment as the director of the small, insufficiently funded State Institute for Serum Research and Serum Testing in Steglitz. Althoff soon realized that Ehrlich deserved better, and in 1899 he helped him gain the directorship of the Institute of Experimental Therapy in Frankfurt-am-Main and later the directorship of the adjacent Georg Speyerhaus, where Ehrlich at last received the freedom and funding he needed for his creative work. Later, Ehrlich described success in science as due to "Geduld, Geschick, Geld, und Glück"-patience, talent, money, and luck. - Indeed, money was one of the issues that broke up the collaboration between Ehrlich and Emil von Behring. Ehrlich's improved technique for producing highly potent diphtheria antitoxin made possible its commercial manufacture and distribution. A chemical company seemed to be ready to contract with both Behring and Ehrlich for commercial rights in return for a percentage of the profits. However, when Ehrlich arrived at the factory, Behring had already reached a separate accord. He persuaded Ehrlich to forgo his share on the promise that he would use his influence to gain Ehrlich the directorship of a state-sponsored research institute, a position that forbade commercial interests. Behring failed to help Ehrlich, but prospered in his own right. Indeed, Behring loved to gamble, and with the aid of winnings he established his own factory and laboratory. Ehrlich never forgave his old colleague for the subterfuge and deceit, nor for the audacity of seeking free laboratory services at Ehrlich's own institutes. - In the paper presented here, Ehrlich confronted more than a technical problem of quality control; the very unknown nature of the antibody-antigen union loomed darkly. Max von Gruber, an eminent serologist and hygienist, and many others criticized him for conjuring the various toxoid substances as devices of mere convenience. However, these scientists were just as confused as Ehrlich, following erroneous models of colloid adsorption or electrolytic dissociation. The law of definite proportions was incorrectly assumed to hold. Antibodies were seen as uniform chemical reactants constant in valence and structure; therefore, Ehrlich explained his inconsistent test results by ascribing variation to the antigenic, toxic atomic groups. He proposed a spectrum of weakened toxins, which he termed "toxoids," that differed in their affinity to antibodies. Each experimental preparation had a unique composition of toxin and toxoids, whose behavior under different mixing conditions affected neutralization. - Ehrlich had the idea of affinity reversed. It is the antibody that varies in affinity and also in valence. The notion of toxoids, however, was valid, but not to the extent he thought. Denatured, nontoxic molecules derived from toxins can indeed elicit and couple with toxin-specific antibodies. Equally true was the fundamental approach of all of Ehrlich's research: corpora non agunt nisi fixata, substances do not react unless they become fixed. He visualized molecules as having two regions of activity, one of which (the haptophore) attaches to complementary receptors on target cells. The other configuration may be a colored dye (the chromophore) or act as a poison (the toxop-hore). Ricin, a toxin found in castor beans, and diphtheria toxin, which were the focus of Ehrlich's attention, have recently been shown to consist of two distinct molecular domains, and their respective functions conform to Ehrlich's model. Even certain antibodies display such a dual nature, the variable antibody receptors attaching to the antigen and the constant Fc region (the tail of the Y-shaped structure) coupling somewhat nonspecifically to the surface of macrophages or mast cells. Ehrlich had taken the first bold step to bring an immunobiological phenomenon into the realm of chemistry. Considering that biochemistry was still an ocean of dreams with only few islands of reality, his grasp of stereochemical principles and behavior was amazingly clear."

        Condensation of Water Vapour in the Presence of Dust-free Air and other Gases

      Harrison and Sons, London 1897 - FIRST EDITION of the first description of WIlson's famous cloud chamber, the first type of detector to show the tracks of elementary particles. Cloud chambers "developed from the work of Charles Wilson at the Cavendish Laboratory in the 1890's. He was interested in creating artificial mist, in order to investigate its effect on light, and did so by building a desktop-sized apparatus in which a glass chamber full of moist air was connected to a piston which could be suddenly moved outward, lowering the pressure and causing mist (or cloud) to form in the chamber. The mist droplets grow on tiny particles of dust in the air (cloud condensation nuclei). But, to his surprise, Wilson found that even when all the dust had been removed from the chamber, when the piston was rapidly moved out over a large distance a very thin mist still formed in the chamber. He surmised that the droplets were condensing around electrically charged particles (ions), and proved this, early in 1896, by operating the cloud chamber alongside a source of X-rays (X-rays had only been discovered in the preceding year) and seeing it fill up with condensation as the X-rays passing through it ionized the atoms in the air inside the chamber. Cloud chambers became an essential tool of physics (it was a cloud chamber photograph, for example, that first revealed the existence of the positron) and grew much larger, many being several meters across. They are still used, although superseded for many purposes by other detectors, including bubble chambers and wire chambers." (Gribben, Q is for Quantum). Wilson shared the 1927 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his method of making the paths of electrically charged particles visible by condensation of vapour." Also includes an early paper by Ernest Rutherford, "A Magnetic Detector of Electrical Waves and some of its Applications" (p. 1-24). IN:Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Series A, pp. 265-307. London: Harrison and Sons, 1897. Quarto, original publisher's burgundy blind-stamped cloth. A fine copy.

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire. Année complète 1897.

      Bureaux de la Revue 1897 - - Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1897, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Edition originale.Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue.Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1897. Couvertures conservées.Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie bichrome.Contributions littéraires de René Boylesve, Paul Fort, Francis Jammes, Henri Ghéon, Remy de Gourmont, etc.Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

Incluye lista de libros del autor rechazadas por los editores. Las Montañas de Oro se publican en 1897, y está escrito entre los veinte y los veintidós años de Lugones. En él quedan evidentes las grandes devociones que profesaba el poeta en ese tiempo: Walt Whitman, Víctor Hugo, los Salmos, y también dos poetas argentinos muy diferentes, Olegario de Andrade y el populista Almafuerte. Estos, junto a Homero y Dante, constituyen la Asamblea de próceres líricos que integran el tomo. Una retórica atrevida > dice Obligado, para un pensamiento libertario y cuasi socialista. La > que tuvo el elogio de Paul Groussac, fue definida como capaz de >. Pero no es un canto meramente ornamental como puede parecer a simple vista, ya que su modernismo está respaldado por una constante exaltación de la justicia, que aparece como meta optimista en su profecía que no deja de tener tintes mesiánicos.
