        Oo-Mah-Ha Ta-Wa-Tha

      Lincoln: Self-published. (1898). A small volume dealing with the Omaha tribe, the treaty of 1854, and a number of notable chiefs who signed the treaty. With illustrations by Susette La Flesche Tibbles, aka Bright Eyes, daughter of one of the Omaha chiefs. One chapter, reprinting the 12th Article of the Treaty, is translated by Bright Eyes; another chapter recounts a story told by Waoo-winchtcha, and is translated by her daughter, Dr. Susan Picotte, an Omaha and half-sister of Tibbles. Repairs to the front free endpaper and some minor rubbing to the cloth at the folds; else a near fine copy. This book, being illustrated by an Indian woman, co-published by her, and with stories and translations by Indian women, is an extremely early example of Native American women writing books and being involved in their production. It is also, according to some, the first book illustrated by a Native American, a claim we can report but cannot confirm. A small but significant volume with work by two of the most prominent Native American women writers of the 19th century. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Brushwork Studies of Flowers, Fruits and Animals for Teachers and Advanced Students.

      London/Liverpool, George Philip & Son (& Nephew), 1898.. Oblong Quarto. Coloured frontispiece, 11 pages of text and XXVII plates with explanations. Original Hardcover (green cloth with lettering to spine and cover). Extraordinarily excellent (Near Mint) condition with barely any signs of wear. Wonderful and rare publication !. Elizabeth Corbet Yeats (11 March 1868 - 16 January 1940), known as Lolly, was born at 23 Fitzroy Road, London. She was the daughter of the Irish artist John Butler Yeats and sister of W. B., Jack and Susan Mary "Lily" Yeats. She trained and worked as an art teacher and was a member of William Morris's circle in London before her family returned to Dublin in 1900. Yeats wrote and created the artwork for "Elementary Brush-Work Studies" (published in 1900), an educational book that teaches young children the technique of painting flowers and plants using her simple method. At the suggestion of Emery Walker, who worked with Morris on the Kelmscott Press, Yeats studied printing with the Women's Printing Society in London. In Dublin, she accepted the invitation to join Evelyn Gleeson to form the Dun Emer Guild along with Lily, who was an embroiderer. Yeats managed the Dun Emer Press from 1902. The Press was located at Runnymede, the house of Evelyn Gleeson. (This house, located in Dundrum, was later renamed Dun Emer. It has since been demolished.) This was set up with the intention of training young women in bookbinding and printing. In 1908, she and her brother William started the Cuala Press, publishing over 70 books including 48 by the poet. Yeats was the first commercial printer in Ireland to work exclusively with hand presses. (Wikipedia)

        The Psychology of Suggestion

      New York: D. Appleton and Company, , 1898. A Research into the Subconscious Nature of Man and Society. With an Introduction by Prof. William James… Octavo. Publisher's dark blue cloth, mid-blue surface-paper endpapers. Cloth just a little rubbed at the extremities, front hinge slightly cracked and repaired, light toning, but a very good copy. 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. An uncommon book in nice condition.

First announcement of "Heroin" in Print'! - Added - Dreser, Heinrich: Ueber den experimentellen Nachweis der Vertiefung und Verlangsamung der Athemzüge nach therapeutischen Heroingaben (pp.86-95, 1 Taf.).";"Pflüger's Arch., 80/1-2. - Bonn, Verlag von Emil Strauss, 1900, 8°, pp.1-110, 3 Abb., 1 Taf., OBrosch. 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. .

        Lehrbuch der Röntgen-Untersuchung zum Gebrauche für Mediciner von Hermann Gocht, Sekundärarzt der Chir.-Orth. Klinik von Prof. dr. Hoffa zu Würzburg.

      . 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.
