Abb., 5 Taf., OBrosch. - - Heinrich Dreser (1860-1924), chemist and opportunist, was one of the most influential men of his age; between 1897 and 1914, Dreser worked for Bayer, the former dye factory that was to become the first of the world's pharmaceutical giants, in Elberfeld (Wuppertal), north-west Germany. - Dreser was responsible for the launch of two drugs that have shaped the way we live: aspirin, the world's most successful legal drug; and heroin, the most successful illegal one. - He was admired for his thorough, methodical approach, and for his innovations in testing, he was, for example, the first chemist to use animal experiments on an industrial scale. - Diacetylmorphine was first synthesized in 1874 by Charles Robert (Romley) Alder Wright (1844-1894), an English chemist working at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, but his invention did not lead to any further developments. - 23 years later by another chemist, Diacetylmorphine was again synthesised by Felix Hoffmann in the Bayer laboratory in 1897. - Already by early 1898 Heinrich Dreser was testing it on sticklebacks, frogs and rabbits. He also tested it on some of Bayer's workers, and on himself. The workers loved it, some saying it made them feel "heroic" (heroisch). This was also the term used by chemists to describe any strong drug (and diacetylmorphine is four times stronger than morphine). Creating a brand name was easy. - Later, November 1898, Dreser presented the drug to the Congress of German Naturalists and Physicians, claiming it was 10 times more effective as a cough medicine than codeine, but had only a tenth of its toxic effects. It was also more effective than morphine as a painkiller. It was safe. It wasn't habit-forming. In short, it was a wonder drug - the Viagra of its day. -cf.

        Four Girls at Cottage City

      Boston: James H. Earle. 1898. First. First edition, second issue (the earliest obtainable edition -- see below). Gift inscription on the front fly, and a neat horizontal repair near the bottom of the spine, else a fine and fresh copy of a not particularly well-manufactured book. Republished in 1988 by the Oxford University Press, this is an early novel for adolescents about four (racially unidentified) young ladies leaving Providence for a vacation on Cape Cod or Martha's Vineyard. The true first edition was originally published (and almost certainly self-published) in 1895 in Providence, Rhode Island under the imprint of The Continental Printing Co. After the successful publication of the author's earlier and anonymously authored novel Megda by James H. Earle, Earle apparently obtained the remaining sheets of the original printing of Four Girls at Cottage City and reissued them with a separately printed cancel title page. The text and collation of the text of the 1895 issue are identical to that of this 1898 issue except for the title leaf, which was completely reset and is typographically inconsistent with the text. Generally considered the sixth novel published by an African-American woman, the identification of the 1895 issue would perhaps move the book up one place. The 1895 issue is known in only one copy, held by the John Hay Library at Brown University. OCLC lists four copies of this 1898 edition. We have seen only one other (physically much inferior) copy of the 1898 issue offered on the market in the past two decades. Our thanks to Richard Nobel of the John Hay Library for his research in identifying and distinguishing the printing priority. .

      . Stuttgart, Ferdinand Enke Verlag, 1898, 8°, VIII, 232 pp., mit 58 in Text gedruckten Abbildungen, Halbleinenband der Zeit; St.a.Tit; feines Exemplar.. Meileinstein der Radiologie - Erste Auflage des ersten Lehrbuch über die Röntgenuntersuchung für Ärzte. - "Es wurde das eigentliche Lehrbuch seiner Zeit und fand ungeteilten Beifall im In- und Ausland; denn es beruhte auch auf einer Zusammenstelllung aller bis dahin erzeilten Ergebnisse zur neuen Wissenschaft "Röntgenologie" aus aller Welt und brachte den Weg bahnend einen reichen Schatz eigner Erfahrungen und Beobachtungen ärztlicher Anwendung der Röntgenstrahlen. Aus diesem "Lehrbuch", welches Gocht ab 1903 bei der Zweitauflage als "Handbuch der Röntgenlehre bezeichntete, zweigte er mit der 3.Auflage (1911) das Sammelwerk "Die Röntgen-Literatur" ab, nachdem die von ihm von allem Anfang an gesammelte Literatur aus aller Welt infolge ihres gewaltig zugenommenen Umfanges nicht mehr anhangsweise gebracht werden konnte." Das sich daraus entwickelnde "Handbuch der Röntgenlehre" erlebte mehrere Auflagen und wurde 1936 auf 15 Bände erweitert. - Hermann Gocht (1869-1938), Pionier der Röntgenologie, Extraordinarius für Orthopädie in Berlin 1915, Mitbegründer der Deutschen Röntgengesellschaft 1905 - hat in Tübingen, Berlin, Erlangen und Halle Medizin studiert. Nach mehrjähriger Assistententätigkeit in der Chirurgie, Hygiene und Pathologie wurde er Mitarbeiter von A. Hoffa in der Orthopädie in Würzburg. 1900 errichtete er in Halle eine private orthopädische Krankenanstalt. 1915 wurde er Direktor der Universitätspoliklinik für orthopädische Chirurgie in Berlin und 1934 auch des Oskar-Helene-Heim n Berlin-Dahlem. - Gocht hat sich seit der Jahrhundertwende mit der Anwendung der Röntgenstrahlen befaßt und mehrere wichtige Verbesserungen in der Röntgentechnik eingeführt, sowie zahlreiche wissenschaftliche Arbeiten auf dem Gebiet der Röntgendiagnostik und Strahlentherapie veröffentlicht. Schon 1898 schrieb Gocht das erste "Lehrbuch der Röntgenuntersuchungen". -cf. P.Gerhardt

        THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL

      London: Leonard Smithers, 1898. First edition. Very Good. One of 800 copies on handmade Van Gelder paper. A Very Good copy with the spine toned (as usual) and minor soiling to the boards. Decorative bookplate of Clement K. Shorter on the front paste-down. Wilde's later work, based on his two years hard labor at Reading Gaol for "gross indecency." Published under the pseudonym "C. 3. 3." for his cell block because the publisher feared having his name on the work would adversely affect sales. The poem is based on a fellow inmate convicted of murdering his wife and generated one of the great lines from Wilde, "Yet each man kills the thing he loves." Wilde continued to revise his plays until his death in 1900, but said that he had lost the joy of writing and would write no other new works. An excellent copy, housed in a handsome slipcase with chemise. Very Good.

        The Forest Lovers. A Romance.

      London, Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1898 - Octavo. Original decorated green cloth, blocked in darker green, titles to spine gilt, pages uncut. With the dust jacket. A stunning copy in the slightly dusty dust jacket. First edition, first impression, rare in this condition. The author's first novel, which was published to immediate popular and critical acclaim. Loosely inserted in this copy is a 2-page autograph letter from Hewlett to his literary agent Charles F. Cazenove dated 24 February 1913, remonstrating with him for offering rights for The Forest Lovers "to Kinematograph people" (i.e. film producers) at lower rates than those being offered by Macmillan's agent; also asking him to arrange collection of some books. The letter dates from the earliest days of feature films. Though it was ultimately not filmed, Hewlett's historical novel was attracting attention in the immediate wake of the Famous Players production of Anthony Hope's The Prisoner of Zenda, released the same month, February 1913.

Abb., 5 Taf., OBrosch. - - Heinrich Dreser (1860-1924), chemist and opportunist, was one of the most influential men of his age; between 1897 and 1914, Dreser worked for Bayer, the former dye factory that was to become the first of the world's pharmaceutical giants, in Elberfeld (Wuppertal), north-west Germany. - Dreser was responsible for the launch of two drugs that have shaped the way we live: aspirin, the world's most successful legal drug; and heroin, the most successful illegal one. - He was admired for his thorough, methodical approach, and for his innovations in testing, he was, for example, the first chemist to use animal experiments on an industrial scale. - Diacetylmorphine was first synthesized in 1874 by Charles Robert (Romley) Alder Wright (1844-1894), an English chemist working at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, but his invention did not lead to any further developments. - 23 years later by another chemist, Diacetylmorphine was again synthesised by Felix Hoffmann in the Bayer laboratory in 1897. - Already by early 1898 Heinrich Dreser was testing it on sticklebacks, frogs and rabbits. He also tested it on some of Bayer's workers, and on himself. The workers loved it, some saying it made them feel "heroic" (heroisch). This was also the term used by chemists to describe any strong drug (and diacetylmorphine is four times stronger than morphine). Creating a brand name was easy. - Later, November 1898, Dreser presented the drug to the Congress of German Naturalists and Physicians, claiming it was 10 times more effective as a cough medicine than codeine, but had only a tenth of its toxic effects. It was also more effective than morphine as a painkiller. It was safe. It wasn't habit-forming. In short, it was a wonder drug - the Viagra of its day. -cf.

        The Workman's Foe, A New and Original Dramatic Sketch in One Act [bound in with] Paul the Rebel, A New and Original Dramatic Sketch in One Act

      Watts & Co [1898?], London - Hardcover. Rare. A Presentation Copy, inscribed "To Joseph Fay from his old friend Arthur B Moss 25 June 98." The Workman's Foe concerns a man who succeeds in becoming a manager in a large firm and then turns upon the workmen who helped him climb the ladder, making their lives unendurable. Paul the Rebel is the story of a would-be anarchist whose mission is to blow up a bank. He ends up being blown up by his own bomb. Bound in brown cloth with titles and author in gilt to cover and original wraps bound in. Water staining on pastedowns and free endpapers, partially affecting the inscription. Some pages are loose and the paper has browned. The cloth binding is slightly rubbed and worn, but an extraordinary survival story as radical plays by a working-class author were printed in extremely perishable form. According to press notices reprinted on the original paper wrappers, both plays were actually performed in local theaters in London. No original copies in WorldCat, one of two known copies - the other is in the James Ellis collection of Victorian drama. Very good condition given the fragility of the items. Workman's Foe: 16 pages; Paul the Rebel: 14 pages. DRA/013113. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
