        Autograph Letter Signed, in German on a government postcard, Kimberly, South Africa, March 22, 1897.

      - The British government asked Koch to assist in fighting the spread of cattle plague in South Africa. The disease had been introduced through imported cattle. Although Koch proved that the disease was highly contagious, he could not isolate the disease-causing agent. He was, nevertheless, able to develop an effective vaccine. Koch writes to the Director of the Royal Health Authority Councilor Kohler in Berlin. In full, "I was lucky to get last minute tickets for passage on the German East Africa line's "Admiral," and I will depart from Durban on March 28. I will take the liberty to send you cards along the way from each of the countries we have to pass, in accordance with your request. Unfortunately, they do not have picture postcards yet, culture has not reached them yet." Signed, "R. Koch." Slight water staining on right margin text but words remain easily readable.

Pasted to one of the blank panels at the back is an "Explanation of the Plan" containing 83 references for stations, banks, clubs, consulates, consultates-general, hotels, churches, hospitals, mosques, and "various".

        Maxim aerial Torpedo. A new system of throwing high exposives from ordnance, and some recent improvements in smokeless powders

      London, 1897. b/w photographic frontispiece, b/w plates. Oblong folio. (5) 33 pp. plus 16 plates. Hudson Maxim was the brother of Hiram (Maxim machine gun) and a developer of modern smokeless powder and other high explosives, the rights to which he eventually sold to Dupont. In this work, apparently published privately, his “aerial torpedoes” are essentially giant naval guns charged with his new smokeless powder, designed to shoot massive shells (up to 1000 pounds) loaded with gun cotton. The photographic frontispiece shows partially burned particles of smokeless powder. The pages are printed on recto only. Text and illustrations are precise, technical, yet still understandable - as Hudson, with rigorous logic, frames his airtight argument for smokeless powder and aerial torpedoes. With the bookplate of Wican Library on the front pastedown, their blindstamp in the lower corner of the title page, small ink stamp on the verso, and no other markings. Bound in blue cloth with gold cover and spine lettering. Light wear to spine ends. Most unusual.

      . [Blattränder leicht unfrisch.] Joseph Uhl, der in New York geboren wurde, zog schon 1897 nach Bayern und begann 1899 bei Ludwig von Herterich (1856-1932) und Ludwig Schmid-Reutte (1862-1909) an der Kunstakademie in München zu studieren. Vor dem ersten Weltkrieg schuf er hauptsächlich Gemälde, die er in verschiedenen Galerien und Museen in Deutschland ausstellte. Er zog nach Bergen im Chiemgau, perfektionierte für sich autodidaktisch das Radieren und veröffentlichte nach 1918 in erster Linie Graphiken mit Porträts, Aktstudien und Allegorien sowie mit Bildnissen von Kindern. Seine Arbeiten wurden regelmäßig im Münchner Glaspalast ausgestellt und seine Radierungen, die sich besonders durch ihre gekonnte Linienführung und Formgebung auszeichnen, wurden hauptsächlich von dem Berliner Verlag Wohlgemuth & Lissner herausgegeben.

        Du sens musculaire a propos de quelques cas d'hémiataxie posthémiplegique. (thèse de doctorat de médecine) – envoi autographe de Claparède – COPY SIGNED BY CLAPAREDE

      Ch. Eggimann & Cie, Genève 1897 - Grand in-8° relié pleine toile gris chamois, pièce de titre de chagrin havane fonçé, plats de couverture conservés. Envoi autographe de Claparède sur le coin supérieur gauche de la page de titre à la Société de Genève. Plat de couverture conservé. Neveu du zoologiste du même nom et du même prénom, Édouard Claparède entreprend d'abord des études de médecine, sous la direction de Théodore Flournoy et d’Eugène Revillod qu’il remercie dans sa thèse, puis se consacre à la psychologie. Il fait sa carrière à l'université de Genève, où il fonde l'École de psychologie et des sciences de l'éducation. Claparède s'apparente au courant dit fonctionnaliste, qui s'attache à découvrir la finalité de chaque type de comportement en le plaçant dans le contexte de l'ensemble de l'activité. Après des recherches sur l'association des idées et sur le sommeil, il entreprend l'étude de l'intelligence. Il voit dans celle-ci une adaptation mentale aux circonstances nouvelles : elle a pour fonction de suppléer à l'insuffisance des adaptations innées ou acquises. Le tâtonnement est pour lui la source des conduites intelligentes : il n'est pas un pur comportement d'essais et d'erreurs ; il produit ce que Claparède appelle des implications, c'est-à-dire des sortes de raisonnements par analogie consistant à appliquer à des situations nouvelles la conduite qui a réussi précédemment dans des situations voisines. Claparède s'est beaucoup intéressé aux problèmes de l'éducation, de l'orientation scolaire et professionnelle. Son œuvre est à l’époque comparable à celle de Pierre Janet en France, son influence personnelle sur Jean Piaget, l’autre grande figure suisse de la psychologie au XX° siècle a été grande et il est à l'origine des différents courants de la psychologie suisse de langue française. Un tampon de bibliothèque au premier plat et en page de titre. L’exemplaire est dans un état magnifique. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Original head-and-shoulders drawing by Alexander Kostomolotsky (1897/8-1975) of the composer in right profile in black crayon. Undated, but ca. 1945-50. Signed by the artist with initials

      Sheet size 217 x 153 mm. With the autograph signature of the composer in pencil below the portrait. . "Kabalevsky, like Prokofiev and Shostakovich, wrote a great deal of music for the emerging genre of films with sound... It was during the 1930s that Kabalevsky’s style was defined; although Prokofiev served as a model to a certain extent... Kabalevsky's most valuable legacy lies in the field of children’s music, not only in terms of the many works he wrote for young performers but also in his development of a system of musical education for children. Some of his children’s songs became musical symbols of the Soviet age (Chetvyorka druzhnaya rebyat (‘The Band of Four Friends’) and Shkol nïye godï (‘Schooldays’) in particular) while several of his numerous instrumental concertos written for young musicians gained worldwide popularity." Dina Grigor yevna Daragan in Grove online Kostomolotsky also executed drawings of other Russian composers, including Shostakovich, with whom he was friends.

Dramatically too, with its basis in Daudet’s novel, it recalls La traviata... Massenet handles the vicissitudes of love with enormous skill and imagination, and the solo scene for Fanny in the last act may be compared with Charlotte’s great monologue in Werther...

        The Earliest Known Coptic Psalter - The Text, in the Dialect of Upper Egypt, Edited from the Unique Papyrus Codex Oriental 5000 in the British Museum – a fine rebound copy.

      Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co Ltd 1897 - This book was discovered during a probate valuation. It was tucked away to the rear of a partially hidden shelf. Although the covers had become distressed with age the interior was flawless. The book has now been professionally rebound in quarter Moroccan calf and decorated marbled boards. The spine has five gilt edged raised bands with the title contained between the first and second band in gilt on a black background. The external appearance of the book is now magnificent. The interior of the book is unaltered save for the addition of two endpapers front and rear. The page block has original marbling to all edges. The pages, themselves, are in quite remarkable condition for their age; there are no marks or notations and a complete absence of foxing. Save for the tiniest hint of shading to the edges the pages are pristine on high quality semi-glazed paper. This is by far and away the most impressive copy of this important work that we have encountered. It was limited to an edition of 350 copies; no individual number was noted. The rarity of this book speaks for itself. The images you see are high resolution photographs of the actual book. The book will be dispatched via the Royal Mail in protective packaging. We do not charge postage to buyers within the UK. Those from outside the UK are asked to contact us before purchasing.

        Original head-and-shoulders drawing by Alexander Kostomolotsky (1897/8- 1975) of the composer in right profile in black crayon. Undated, but ca. 1945-50. Signed by the artist with initials

      . Sheet size 217 x 153 mm. With the autograph signature of the composer in pencil below the portrait.. "Kabalevsky, like Prokofiev and Shostakovich, wrote a great deal of music for the emerging genre of films with sound... It was during the 1930s that Kabalevsky's style was defined; although Prokofiev served as a model to a certain extent... Kabalevsky's most valuable legacy lies in the field of children's music, not only in terms of the many works he wrote for young performers but also in his development of a system of musical education for children. Some of his children's songs became musical symbols of the Soviet age (Chetvyorka druzhnaya rebyat ('The Band of Four Friends') and Shkol niye godi ('Schooldays') in particular) while several of his numerous instrumental concertos written for young musicians gained worldwide popularity." Dina Grigor yevna Daragan in Grove online Kostomolotsky also executed drawings of other Russian composers, including Shostakovich, with whom he was friends.
