        Die Arbeit der Verdauungsdrüsen. Vorlesungen. Autorisierte Übersetzung aus dem Russischen von Dr. A. Walther. Mit einem Vorwort und Zusätzen des Verfassers.

      Wiesbaden, Verlag von J. F. Bergmann, 1898. 4°. XII, 199 (1) S., HLdr. d. Zt. a. 4 Bünden m. etw. Rückenverg. u. goldgepr. Rückentitel. Erste dt. Ausgabe. - „Speichelbildung ist eine geläufige Erfahrung; sie kann auch ohne den Anblick oder Geruch von Speisen erzeugt werden. Bei einem Menschen kann sich diese Reaktion zum Beispiel dann einstellen, wenn er hört, wie im Nebenraum der Tisch zum Essen gedeckt wird, und beim Hund ist dieselbe Erscheinung zu verzeichnen, wenn er beispielsweise das Klappern seines Freßgeschirrs hört. In einer Reihe von Vorlesungen, die Pawlow in Petersburg hielt und die im Jahr darauf veröffentlicht wurden, befaßte er sich eingehend mit der Erforschung dieser Vorgänge und lieferte damit einen bedeutenden Beitrag zu unserem Wissen über die Physiologie der Verdauung. Im Verlauf dieser Vorlesungen beschrieb er den künstlichen Magen für Hunde, mit dem es ihm gelang, zum ersten Mal Magensäfte ohne Nahrungszufuhr zu erzeugen [...]. Pawlows Ergebnisse bilden eine Ergänzung zu denen Freuds, und viele schreiben ihnen eine wesentlichere Bedeutung zu. Wie bei Freud, so haben wir es auch hier mit dem Werk eines einzigen Mannes und mit einem völlig neuen Weg zu tun. Pawlow erhielt den Nobelpreis für Medizin im Jahre 1904“ (Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 689f.). - „This first edition in German is the first translation of this classic work on the digestive glands, published in Russia the year before“ (Heirs of Hippocrates). - Einband berieben u. gering bestoßen.

        Manuscript - Set of 20 Wrappers - Farthest North. Being The Record of A Voyage of Exploration of the Ship "Fram" 1893-96 and of a Fifteen Months' Sleigh Journey by Dr. Nansen and Lieut. Johansen, With An Appendix by Otto Sverdrup Captain of the Fram.

      England, 1898. 8vo. 20 issues, 456 pages, plus index, table of contents, title pages, plates for illustration - one of which is in colour. Including the original, large folding colour polar map of routes taken, placed within an issue. Original condition with illustrated and titled wrappers, containing all the ads, and promoting the George Newes book edition. Original collector's initials to front of issues. Wrappers chipped, mainly at extremities, otherwise in very good condition. Contained in an archival box for protection. A scarce early edition of a cornerstone Arctic work in twenty wrappers, seldom found complete! This is an exceedingly rare publication of Nansen's account, describing and illustrating his highly successful expedition to the Arctic, which proved his theory that the Arctic could be traversed on revolutionary lines. Through his early whaling experience and the 1888-9 Greenland expedition, Nansen became convinced of a regular ice-drift from Alaska to Greenland. Defying accepted opinion Nansen's audacious plan was to allow his ship to be frozen in the ice-pack, then drift in the ice across the Arctic. In a vessel of his own design, weighing 400 tons and strong enough to withstand the crushing ice, the expedition sailed from Norway in June 1893, the 'Fram' successfully returning to Norway in August 1896. In a second element to Nansen's expedition, he and the Stoker Johanssen struck out from the 'Fram' in March 1895 with Huskies and sledges across the ice to reach the pole. Within a few weeks they had reached the farthest northern latitude then attained by man (86 degrees 14') however, the deteriorating condition of his dogs forced Nansen to turn back. On his return Nansen received worldwide acclaim, gaining recognition for his efforts through honours from the Royal Geographical Society and Oxford and Cambridge Universities. . Very Good.

        The War of the Worlds

      [8]+526 pages with frontispiece and fifteen additional plates. Small octavo (7 ½" x 5 ¼") bound in original publisher?s decorated green cloth with gilt lettering to spine and cover. Illustrated by Warwick Goble. With the original recording of the famous Orson Welles broadcast in the Fall of 1938. (Curry p526) First American edition. The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by English author H. G. Wells first serialized in 1897 in the UK by Pearson's Magazine and in the US by Cosmopolitan magazine. The novel's first appearance in hardcover was in 1898 from publisher William Heinemann of London. Written between 1895 and 1897, it is one of the earliest stories that detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race.The novel is the first-person narrative of an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and that of his younger brother in London as Earth is invaded by Martians. The novel is one of the most commented-on works in the science fiction canon. The plot has been related to invasion literature of the time. The novel has been variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism, and generally Victorian superstitions, fears and prejudices. At the time of publication, it was classified as a scientific romance, like Wells' earlier novel The Time Machine. The War of the Worlds has been both popular (having never gone out of print) and influential, spawning half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, a record album, various comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It has even influenced the work of scientists, notably Robert Goddard, who (inspired by the book) invented both the liquid fueled rocket and multistage rocket, which resulted in the Apollo 11 moon landing 55 years later.Condition: Spine darkened with light rubbing to tips, light scattered soiling, small chip to upper corner of title previous owner?s stamp to pasted downs and page 31 else a very good copy.

        [Photograph]: Sacramento Camera Club 1898

      Sepia-toned albumen photograph. Measuring 9" x 7.5" on slightly larger card leaf apparently removed from an album. Slight sunning at the edges, some light staining on the mount, not affecting the image, otherwise near fine. Labeled in ink on the mount: "Sacramento Camera Club 1898." Image of nearly 50 California shutterbugs, about half of them women, posing with cameras, many of those on tripods. On the verso of the mount is a photo of similar size and condition of a railroad locomotive in snow labeled: "Flat Wheels Blue Canyon. Jan. 1897." Some contemporary newspaper accounts seem to indicate that the Club came into existence in 1895, and exchanged images for exhibition with other clubs throughout the country. The photo of the Club is a very nice, large and relatively early image of amateur photographers. .

"The Greco-Turkish War of 1897, also called the Thirty Days' War and known in Greece as the Black '97 or the Unfortunate War, was a war fought between the Kingdom of Greece and Ottoman Empire. Its immediate cause was the question over the status of the Ottoman province of Crete, whose Greek majority long desired union with Greece. Despite a decisive Ottoman military victory, an autonomous Cretan State under Ottoman suzerainty was established the following year (as a result of the intervention of the Great Powers after the war), with Prince George of Greece and Denmark as its first High Commissioner. This was the first war effort in which the military and political personnel of Greece were put to test since the Greek War of Independence in 1821." wikipedia [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      University of Chicago Press 1898 - 109 volumes. Volumes 6-114, 1898-2006. 109 years of the Journal + Index (for 1893-1927). First 23 volumes bound in 3/4 antique red leather, later 85 volumes bound in full red buckram. Volume 6 (1898) contains only No. 6 for that year.

Institutional stamps. 26 cm high. Some volumes have a spine label. A massive set filled with articles, diagrams, tables, maps, illustrations, photographs, etc. This set is so gneiss you shouldn?t take it for granite. From the University of Chicago: One of the oldest journals in geology, The Journal of Geology has since 1893 promoted the systematic philosophical and fundamental study of geology. The Journal published original research across a broad range of subfields in geology, including geophysics, geochemistry, sedimentology, geomorphology, petrology, plate tectonics, volcanology, structural geology, mineralogy, and planetary sciences. Many of its articles have wide appeal for geologists, present research of topical relevance, and offer new geological insights through the application of innovative approaches and methods. International buyers, please do NOT purchase this set unless you are willing to cover the costs. The weight and width of this 109 volume set is significant. Don't expect perfection from these books, they all have their faults. These books are perfect for the sedimental geology lover. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE KLONDYKE NUGGET. By S.F. Cody

      Belfast, Ireland, 1898. Tears in both corners of upper margin, not affecting image or text. Light edge wear. Very good. A rare poster for the popular stage play, THE KLONDYKE NUGGET, written and performed by S.F. Cody throughout the British Isles at the end of the 19th century. Samuel Franklin Cody (1867-1913) was a unique figure in late Victorian Anglo-American popular entertainment. Born Samuel Franklin Cowdery, he later changed his surname to capitalize on the fame of Buffalo Bill Cody, even mimicking Buffalo Bill's clothing and facial hair style. Born in Texas, S.F. Cody trained in the Forepaugh Wild West Show, and found much of his fame in England. He is renowned in the history of aviation as the first man to conduct a powered flight in England, and he later developed large kites that were used for artillery spotting during World War I. Cody's life was filled with tall tales (though some of them are perhaps true), including his claim that he prospected for gold in Dawson City during the Klondike Gold Rush. That story set the groundwork for the theatrical play advertised herein, where Cody plays the role of George Exelby; Lela Cody, his (common law) second wife, the part of Rosie; and her son, Edward LeRoy, plays Joe Smith. All three are depicted on this poster, which also features a large gold nugget, and shows scenes from the play in camp, on the trail, and in hairy situations in barrooms and the frozen wilderness. One of the larger illustrations shows a forlorn Cody pondering a map, while another shows him, pick-axe in hand, "on the summit of the Chilcoot Pass." OCLC locates a single copy of this poster, at Yale. A colorful and rare poster from a remarkable American showman at the height of the Klondike Gold Rush.

        HELL ON THE BORDER He Hanged Eighty-Eight Men (Signed Association)

      Fort Smith: Phoenix Pub. Co, (and Fort Smith Elevator, Composition, Fort Smith), 1898. Book. Very Good+. Hardcover.. First Edition. 1st printing. Bound in cloth, most likely soon after publication. The original green paper covers were removed when bound & are therefore not present. Decorated title label (a little worn & browned) on spine. 720pp. Illust. This copy was a gift from the famous Western historian, E. A. Brininstool. In ink on the ffep is written, "L. H. Spragle from my ole' pard E. A. Brininstool Los Angeles Calif. Nov/1918." The copy is not signed, however, by Brininstool. One of the rarest & most sought of all outlaw & law enforcement books, this is the story of Judge Isaac C. Parker's Fort Smith federal court which served Indian Territory for many years. This book is a primary source for countless books on territorial outlaws & lawmen. Very good condition, although the upper corner of the text block was bumped resulting in compression bending across the corner on each page -- typical for a bumped book. The first 60pp at the upper front corner have a very tiny chip, only about 1/16". There is the occasion page elsewhere with minuscule chip. Covers vg, if somewhat worn at head & toe of spine, & at the fore corners. Your bookseller had the hinges professionally redone. This is a tight, eminently usable copy. Surprisingly good paper was used in this book; very little or no browning & no brittleness. Rare. 150 #65, 6-guns 929, Howes H203, Rader 1780, Graff 1785..

        The Psychology of Suggestion: A Research into Subconscious Nature of Man and Society. With an Introduction by Professor William James, of Harvard Universitiy

      NY: D. Appleton and Company 1898 - Spine rebacked in modern red cloth. 3/4 binding over marbled boards. x, 386 pages illustrations, plates. Hardcover. Good binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages. "First edition of Sidis's first book. Sidis arrived in America from Russia in 1887 "a friendless and almost penniless immigrant," (H. Addington Bruce, "Boris Sidis - an Appreciation," The Journal of Abnormal Psychology and Social Psychology, Apr. 1923) he was accepted at Harvard graduating in 1894, and attracting the interest of William James. James encouraged him to specialize in psychology and in 1897 he received his PhD. He subsequently did important work at New York State Psychopathic Institute, developing his method of hypnoidization, "and effecting impressive cures in cases of functional nervous and mental disorder." In 1904 he set up in private practice in psychotherapy at Brookline, Massachusetts, whilst continuing his experimental work, being "one of the first to undertake really scientific exploration of the subconscious region of the mind," and in 1909 he established a sanatorium for the treatment of nervous afflictions in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Bruce considers him to have been a "notable figure," and one who would be increasingly recognized for his contribution to the "larger knowledge now possessed regarding the nature and possibilities of the human personality." This is indirectly true, in that Sidis is probably best remembered now as the father of the prodigious William James Sidis." - Peter Harrington. Subjects: Mental suggestion. Suggestion.

        IN QUEST OF LIFE; OR, THE REVELATIONS OF THE WIYATATAO OF XIPANTL. THE LAST HIGH PRIEST OF THE AZTECS.

      London, New York: F. Tennyson Neely, Publisher, [1898] - Octavo, pp. [i-iii] iv [v] vi-ix [x] [11] 12-363 [364] [365-368: ads], three inserted plates, including frontispiece (photographic portrait of the author), original gray-green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and silver. First edition. "This eccentric American lost-race fantasy, while presenting a confused and sometimes turgid appearance to the casual reader, has, hidden away in its pages like dormant magma, some of the most bizarre and controversial conceptions of its period. The story posits the former existence of a tribe of Toltecs in the American Southwest who practiced human sacrifice, and from whose altar dripped blood and gore that sank down into the ground and mingled with an underground stream to produce a liquid that acted as an elixir vitae (thus, technically, making this a kind of vampire story). In one scene, the high priest takes refuge from an earthquake in the cavern through which this stream flows, but, in trying to bring his young bride along with him, she suffers an accident that cuts her torso in two. The priest rescues the lower half, impregnates it and, by steeping it in the elixir stream for nine months, ensures the vitality of the fetus and the eventual birth of his heir." - Robert Eldridge. Reginald 15423. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Bookplate of Stuart A. Teitler (a noted collector of lost race fiction) affixed to front paste-down. Cloth lightly rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, two short closed tears in title leaf, a very good copy with clean and bright covers. A notably rare book.
