        Genèse et nature de l'Hystérie

      2 vol. 1: [2] ff.,V, 526, [1] Paris, Félix Alcan, 1897, in-8, 2 vol. 1: [2] ff,V, 526, [1] pp.; 2: [2] ff, 333, 1 bl, [1] pp. 12 planches de dessins et d'écritures, Demi maroquin noir de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs, Réédition de ce traité, publié initialement en 1892, qui a beaucoup apporté à la compréhension de l'Hystérie. La théorie neurophysiologique de Paul Sollier sur l'Hystérie prend pour base le concept de "lésion dynamique fonctionnelle" instauré par son prédécesseur Charcot. En outre, Charcot avait démontré que les paralysies hystériques n'étaient pas déterminées par une lésion organique, mais par ce qu'il appelait une "lésion dynamique fonctionnelle". Ainsi, partant de ce postulat, il étend ce concept au-delà du cortex cérébral et détermine un dysfonctionnement cortical impliquant l'activation et l'inhibition de certaines parties du cerveau. Le neuropsychologue Paul Sollier (1861-1933), le plus intelligent des élèves de Charcot aux dire de Léon Daudet, sera chargé par son maître, à qui il dédie sa préface, de faire la synthèse des découvertes les plus récentes sur la mémoire : ses analyses ont été à la base de la réflexion de son patient le plus célèbre, Marcel Proust, pour sa" Recherche du temps perdu". (Bogousslavky, Following Charcot, pp. 106-114) Agréable exemplaire. Déchirure aux mors supérieurs du premier volume, coins légèrement frottés. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque du Dr Carrier de Lyon, avec son cachet ex-libris apposé sur les premiers feuillets des deux volumes.

        Ansicht des Klosters Fahr bei Zürich. Öl a. Leinwand..

      50 x 67 cm , gerahmt, Wandmalerei Karl Peterli wurde 1897 in Wil geboren. Wie schon sein Grossvater, wirtete auch sein Vater im Restaurant Sonne, führte nebenbei aber noch ein Limonadengeschäft. 1907 starb sein Vater. Die Mutter musste sich fortan alleine um die acht Kinder, die Gäste in der Sonne und das Geschäft kümmern. Karl und seine Geschwister wurden dazu erzogen, zu Hause mit anzupacken.Ein besonders guter Schüler soll Karl Peterli nicht gewesen sein. Nur im Zeichnen, da erfreute er seinen Lehrer. Als Jugendlicher begann er dann eine Lehre zum Dekorationsmaler. Die Begegnung mit dem Winterthurer Maler Hans Schöllhorn leitete eine Wende ein. Als 20-Jähriger besuchte Peterli die Ecole des Beaux Arts in Genf, wo unter anderem Ferdinand Hodler unterrichtete. Es folgen Aufenthalte in Italien, Studien in Paris, Reisen nach Deutschland und Holland.Doch Peterli zog es zurück nach Wil. 1925 liess er sich wieder in seiner Heimatstadt nieder und heiratete die Musikerin Rita Tuason, mit der er drei Kinder hatte. Mit seiner Rückkehr nach Wil entschloss Peterli sich definitiv zu einer freien künstlerischen Tätigkeit. Gelegentlich entwarf er auch Fahnen und Beschriftungen und erteilte Zeichenunterricht an der Gewerbeschule. Er starb 1975

        Charles O'Malley. The Irish Dragoon

      London: Service & Paton, 1897. "Vivid, Rollicking Adventures of Military Life and Hard-Drinking, Fox-Hunting Irish Society" Illustrated by Arthur Rackham [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. LEVER, Charles. Charles O'Malley. The Irish Dragoon. With Sixteen Illustrations… London: Service & Paton, 1897. First Rackham illustrated edition. Octavo (7 5/8 x 5 inches; 194 x 128 mm.). [ii], [x], 628, [2, advertisements] pp. Title-page printed in red and black. Sixteen full-page black and white illustrations, including frontispiece. Publisher's burgundy ribbed cloth. Upper board with gilt stamped title and author vignette, spine with foliate design and title lettered in gilt. Upper edge cut, others untrimmed. E5 & E6 (pp. 73-76) poorly opened with very slight loss (1/8 x 1 inch); 2D6 (p. 427/8) with small piece (7/16 x 1/2 inch) missing from blank outer margin; a few very minor and insignificant marginal stains, otherwise a near fine copy. Engraved bookplate of W. Kinning Crone on rear paste-down. "By 1898, Rackham had become the master of a repertoire of three areas of style. The first, and perhaps the style which had brought him the greater part of his income to date, was the blood-and-thunder boy's adventure story manner of...books such as The Money-Spinner and Charles O'Malley" (Hamilton). "Vivid, rollicking adventures of military life and hard-drinking, fox-hunting Irish society. A story of the Peninsular War, a medley of boisterous fun, humorous character, love-making, and martial adventure, many being good stories redressed. The great war amid which these scenes are enacted, and the romantic countries and inhabitants of Portugal, Spain, and France, afford a great variety of scenery, of adventure, and of comic and tragic incident -- the interest never flags for a moment. The humorous figure Major Monsoon is a real personage, who was actually present at occurrences that Lever could never otherwise have heard about" (Baker, A Guide to Historical Fiction). Latimore and Haskell p. 10. Riall p. 20. Hamilton p. 47.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1897 - 1897 Wisden Original Hardback, Fine Condition

      1897. For sale here is an 1897 original Publisher's hardback in fine condition. 1897 was the second year that Wisden published in hardback and in our experience the 1897 is just as scarce as the 1896 hardback. It is difficult to know why these two years are so scarce compared to later hardback years. It might be that Wisden produced them in very small numbers or possibly because quite a lot of them were taken out of the hardback covers and rebound in bindings to match the years prior to 1896. A lot of Wisden from this era were rebound by collectors at the time of publication. In any event the book is incredibly scarce! The front and rear boards and the spine are absolutely immaculate. The book as had no restoration whatsoever. The gilt is bright to the front board and to the spine. Internally, all is in immaculate condition - the front and rear paste downs, the contents and the plate are all complete, original, unmarked and in fine condition. An immaculate copy of a very scarce book.

        HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA (inscribed and signed by the author).

      N.J. Stone & Co., San Francisco 1897 - 4 volumes, publisher's full morocco stamped in gilt and blind; octavo; (vii)-xxxvi, 37-788; (v)-xli, 43-823; (vii)-xli, 43-981; (xv)-xli, 43-858 pp. All edges gilt. First edition of volumes 3 & 4; volumes 1 & 2 were originally published in 1885. An important history of California, described thus by Cowan "The best history of California within reasonable proportions. The accuracy of its author is well known, and the individual who inclines to history will find it readable. It has little in common with . . . Bancroft; so comparison is not made. It presents one singular anomaly which could neither have been foreseen nor avoided. In the earlier half of his work, Mr. Hittell used very extensively for his sources of history the archives of California, which were at the office of the United States surveyor-general in San Francisco. These were completely destroyed in the great fire of 1906, thereby rendering the possibility of verification of such references almost hopeless. The work has been adversely criticized for some reflections upon the missonaries, but notwithstanding such comments its value is unimpaired."

        DRACULA

      Westminster: Archibald Constable and Company, 1897. FIRST EDITION, First Issue, before advertisement leaf and publisher's catalogue. 200 x 130 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 1/8"). ix, [i], 390 pp. FIRST EDITION, First Issue, before advertisement leaf and publisher's catalogue. Fine modern black crushed morocco by Bayntun Riviere (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with double gilt fillet border, raised bands, spine compartments similarly framed, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. Original cloth covers and spine bound in. Occasional mild marginal foxing or small stains, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, clean, fresh, and wide margined, and in an attractive unworn binding. This is the earliest edition of the most famous and influential vampire tale of all. Stoker (1847-1912) was inspired by the folklore of his native Ireland and by the Gothic novels of his countryman Sheridan Le Fanu. As DNB observes, the "complex and highly symbolic" plot here "illustrated [the author's] fears about a world approaching a new century, about the unspeakable things which could happen to ordinary people, and about male insecurity and the dangers of subservience to another person. . . . Favourably compared with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, and Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher, it was considered weird and powerful, one of the best in the supernatural line." Received with enthusiasm by critics and the public alike, it went through 11 editions in Stoker's lifetime, and it continues to resonate with readers and to inspire other artists. This is not an especially rare book, but it is not common to find a well-preserved copy, and our appealing morocco binding provides a welcome alternative to the publisher's yellow cloth, which invariably shows up very soiled.
