        The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War, the first edition with interesting provenance

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1898. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. Very good plus. This is Churchill's first book, based on his exploits with Sir Bindon Blood's expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. Offered here is a superior, collector worthy first edition, first state copy with interesting provenance. The sole previous owner name is "M. G. Cassels" in pencil on the half-title and what appear to corresponding corrections to pp. 187-89 and p. 207. On page 207, the third name in a list of "Wounded severely" British officers is "O. R. Cassells, 35th Sikhs." The "O." is crossed out and replaced with a "G" for the first initial and one of the "l"s struck to match the "G. Cassels" on the half-title. The corrections are in pencil and the "G" appears to be in the same hand as the "G." on the half-title. Lieutenant Cassells (or Cassels) was wounded while fighting alongside Churchill; his gallantry and good fortune are described in some detail on pp. 187-189. In each of the four instances of "Cassells" appearing in these pages, a single "l" is neatly crossed out in pencil. It seems quite plausible that the signature on the half-title page and corrections to the wounded officer's name were made by the officer himself. When this book was written and published, Churchill was a young cavalry officer still serving in India. While he had successfully applied his pen as a war correspondent - indeed the book is based on his dispatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail - this was his first book-length work. The young Churchill was motivated by a combination of pique and ambition. He was vexed that his Daily Telegraph columns were to be published unsigned. On 25 October 1897 Churchill wrote to his mother: "...I had written them with the design... of bringing my personality before the electorate." Two weeks later, his resolve to write a book firming, Churchill again wrote to his mother: "...It is a great undertaking but if carried out will yield substantial results in every way, financially, politically, and even, though do I care a damn, militarily." Having invested his ambition in this first book, he clearly labored over it: "I have discovered a great power of application which I did not think I possessed. For two months I have worked not less than five hours a day." The finished manuscript was sent to his mother on the last day of 1897 and published on 14 March of 1898. Publication was arranged by Churchill's uncle while the author was still in India, resulting in numerous spelling and detail errors. Churchill was incensed by the errors and acted with haste to address them. Hence later states of the first edition bear errata slips. Home Issue copies also bear a 32-page Longmans, Green catalogue bound in at the back, which is dated either "12/97" or "3/98" at the foot of page 32. With only a little more than 1,900 copies bound, this first edition of Churchill's first book is both desirable and elusive in collector worthy condition. Here is such a copy, notable not only for provenance, but for very good plus condition. The green cloth binding remains square with only light wear to extremities. We find a tiny ink mark below the author's name, but the spine gilt remains bright and we note only trivial overall soiling. The contents remain bright with modest intermittent spotting. First state is confirmed both by the lack of an errata slip and by a rear catalogue dated "12/97". The original black endpapers are intact, as are the frontispiece, tissue guard, and all maps, including the two folding maps at pages 1 and 146. The binding remains firmly attached, though we note some tenderness at the half-title verso, where there is a cosmetic split at the gutter, the paper separated but the mull and binding cords beneath still intact. We find a miniscule, unobtrusive bookseller sticker affixed to the lower front pastedown. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.1.a, Woods/ICS A1(aa), Langworth p.12.

        Lettres de deces

      [letters date from 1898-1937]., Brussels - Folio Printer’s sample book with 43 tipped-in examples of funereal and memorial letters dated between 1898 and 1937. Rare collection of interesting examples of letters of condolence and sympathy to send to the bereaved. When the family of a deceased wanted to step up above placing the same old notice in the obituary pages of the local newspaper, they sent out formal printed letters of their loss. And here we have a slew of samples. Letters are directed to family friends, acquaintances, the nobility and landed gentry, etc., printed by specific name to whom they are sent. The text mentions the deceased (obviously), with the usual added supplements (loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, etc.) After this information is imparted, one can create their unique letter, including, for example, when and where the burial took (or will take) place, additional funeral information, when mass will be celebrated, and related facts that might be important. Of particular interest are the different ways of starting your letter (still is the most difficult part today). As an example, you might wish to start: "We have the honor to inform you of the painful loss of." or your "It pains us to have to share the cruel loss of." Many are quite touching. Also included are printed responses to sympathy letters.Van der aa (1899-1949?) was the printer and lithographer to the Court of Brussels. This collection was gathered to be used as examples for customers.

        Sartor Resartus

      1898. first edition. Strange Fantastical Figures, Drawing Strongly on the Genre of the Grotesque[SULLIVAN, Edmund J., illustrator]. CARLYLE, Thomas. Sartor Resartus. The Life & Opinions of Herr Teufelsdröckh… London: George Bell and Sons, 1898. First Edmund J. Sullivan illustrated edition. Limited to One Hundred and Fifty copies (this being No. 34) on Japanese vellum, with an additional illustration (facing page 258). Octavo (7 15/16 x 5 1/4 inches; 201 x 134 mm.). xxiv, 352 pp. Frontispiece and extra plate "The Divine Symbol" facing page 258. Seventy-seven additional illustrations including eleven full-page. Publishers cream buckram, spine lettered in black and red. Spine very slightly darkened otherwise an excellent copy of this very scarce book. Edmund Joseph Sullivan (1869-1933), usually known as E. J. Sullivan, was a British book illustrator who worked in a style which merged the British tradition of illustration from the 1860s with aspects of Art Nouveau. Sullivan's style is comparable to that of Aubrey Beardsley, but is more romantic than Beardley's acerbic manner. His illustrated books include: The Compleat Angler (1896) and Tom Brown's Schooldays (1896), Sartor Resartus (1898), and The French Revolution (1910).  This amazing, illustrated edition of Thomas Carlyle's Sartor Resartus, contains seventy-nine illustrations ranging from emblems to full page pictures. Sullivan adapted his style to use the faux-Rococo techniques he had developed in his play-illustrations in order to combine them with bizarre images of strange fantastical figures, drawing strongly on the genre of the grotesque.Of Edmund J. Sullivan (1869-1933), Gordon N. Ray wrote “Sullivan’s career as an illustrator was one of the most substantial and distinguished in the annals of English art” (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England, p. 187).Sartor Resartus (meaning 'The tailor re-tailored') is an 1836 novel by Thomas Carlyle, first published as a serial in 1833–34 in Fraser's Magazine. The novel purports to be a commentary on the thought and early life of a German philosopher called Diogenes Teufelsdröckh (which translates as 'god-born devil-dung'), author of a tome entitled "Clothes: their Origin and Influence", but was actually a poioumenon. Teufelsdröckh's Transcendentalist musings are mulled over by a skeptical English Reviewer (referred to as Editor) who also provides fragmentary biographical material on the philosopher. The work is, in part, a parody of Hegel, and of German Idealism more generally. However, Teufelsdröckh is also a literary device with which Carlyle can express difficult truths.

        Über die operative Verkleinerung einer Nase (Rhinomiosis) (pp.882-885, 5 Abb.).

      - BKW, 35/40. - Berlin, August Hirschwald, 1898, 4°, pp.877-896, Brosch. Erstdruck! - "1898 fürhte Jacques Joseph (1865-1934) in eigener Praxis die erste Nasenverkleinerung über einen äußeren Zugang aus" - - "Joseph's rhinoplasty, developed independently of Roe and Weir." - "It is a fascinating experience to read the report of the first rhinoplasty operation by a man who eventually became one of the world's foremost plastic surgeons and who developed the classic rhinoplasty methods. The fascination of this paper is even greater for me because of my personal contact with Joseph and because, after practicing plastic surgery for almost half a century, I still find Joseph's classic methods unsurpassed. - Joseph began originally as an orthopedic surgeon, but soon he became involved with the reduction of large, protruding ears. Apparently the rumor of this successful operation spread around, and one day a male patient appeared in his office, asking to have his unshapely large nose reduced. - Joseph describes the psychologic effect of the conspicuous nose and makes the fundamental observation that the rhinoplasty was performed to make the patient inconspicuous. After the operation he noted that the patient "is happy to move around unnoticed." Even today, 70 years later, one often hears the erroneous remark that rhinoplasty is an operation for vanity's sake. That is not true. Vanity is the desire to excel. The average rhinoplasty patient wishes to be relieved of a real or imagined conspicuousness of his nose. - Joseph used the name "Rhinomiosis" for the operation. He liked to coin technical terms, usually Greek and Latin (e.g. "Rhinoneoplastik" for nasal reconstruction, "Melomioplastik" for a face lift, or "Metopo-mioplastik" for wrinkles and frowns of the forehead). - The day before the operation, Joseph tried it on a cadaver. He was extremely thorough, and his analytical approach manifested itself in the exact nose measurements, made before and after operation. I always admired this exactness when he fashioned a skin flap. He would measure the defect and flap from every angle, and carefully study the effect of turning the pedicle. The flap fitted perfectly; it never had to be stretched to make up for shortage. His sense of form was that of an artist. I have never seen a better total nasal reconstruction, whether from the forehead or arm, than Joseph's. - Joseph had an ingenious and constructive mind and devised many instruments, some of them obsolete today. It was bewildering for a young surgeon to see that he had a special instrument for practically every step of a rhinoplasty. It almost seemed that one only had to have all those instruments and the operation was easy. He also devised, for "aseptic" suturing, a horseshoe-shaped double-pronged forceps. It was to thread the suture material without touching either the needle or the thread. He gave this method the fancy name "Apodactyle suture" (fingerless suture). This was to prevent stitch infections. Joseph did not use gloves, only three rubber fingers on each hand. He considered the sense of touch important in endonasal plastic work. - He did not wear cap or mask. Nevertheless, he observed accurate aseptic technique and had few complications. This was due to his extreme care and gentleness in handling tissues; he called it "biologic sense." - Joseph amassed a vast experience which he crystallized into definite methods. No operative step was ever haphazard, nor without careful consideration. One could sense his concentration during an operation, saying many times "it can be done this way or that way." He often uttered the word "so," when he accomplished a step. - Joseph has been accused of being secretive about his methods. To a certain extent this was true. On the other hand, one must realize that there was sharp rivalry at that time among some of his colleagues in Germany who jealously observed Joseph's meteoric rise in this new specialty.

On the other hand, one must realize that there was sharp rivalry at that time among some of his colleagues in Germany who jealously observed Joseph's meteoric rise in this new specialty. They were eager both to learn and to appropriate his methods under their own names. Some of the general surgeons thought that rhinoplasty was a very simple operation, and that was the reason Joseph was reluctant to show it. It was said that Prof. Axhausen, one of Germany's leading plastic surgeons, asked and received permission to observe Joseph's operation. He admitted afterward that while rhinoplasty was surgically simple it took Joseph's special talent to perform it successfully. - Joseph gave some courses to foreigners (mostly Americans) after World War I-for which he charged a considerable fee. These consisted of observing (without questions in the operating room) his operations. He also gave a few courses in the Anatomical Institute on well-dissected specimens. In the beginning I had to pay him also, but only a nominal fee (coming from a poor European country). After a couple of months he relinquished my tuition, which was a great favor. At that time it was customary to pay for knowledge and experience. - Joseph did not lose much time in reporting his first rhinoplasty. Within about three months after doing it he presented this, his only case, before the Medical Society of Berlin. Priority was (and apparently always will be) an important ambition of surgeons. It must have been a shock and disappointment when Joseph learned that his rhinoplasty was not the first one. Nevertheless, without doubt, it was his original operation. It is touching, and characteristic of his reasoning, that he insisted that in certain respects his operation was the first one, just the same. With exacting mind he took apart Weir's operation, step by step, and compared it with his own. Finally he came to the conclusion that the only similarities between the two operations were that they both were done to relieve the psychologic effect of a large, conspicuous nose-and that both noses were radically reduced in size (rhinomiosis totalis). Otherwise his surgical method was entirely different, he claimed, and he achieved a better result with a single operation than Weir did with four. Therefore, Joseph felt that his priority claim was valid. - Peculiarly, both patients were men. - I am sure that if Joseph read this paper 20 to 25 years later, he must have smiled. Compared with later refinements, this first operation (which he so jealously defended) was primitive and crude. Nevertheless, from an historical point of view, it clearly sjnows the characteristics and the germs of the genius-who became the world's unchallenged father of modern rhinoplastic surgery."

        Original Studio Portrait of Lt. Col. Sam Steele Royal Northwest Mounted Police

      Dawson City, Yukon Territory: Hegg & Co., Photos, Dawson. 1898. (Photograph) Very good. Original Photograph mounted on studio card: 9 1 / 2" X 6 1 / 4" Image: 7 5 / 16" X 4 7 / 8". Original Studio Portrait of Lt. Col. Sam Steele [South African War Service Kit?] Strathcona's Horse Samuel Benfield Steele 1851 - 1919 Samuel Benfield Steele, CB, KCMG, MVO (January 5, 1851 – January 30, 1919) was a famous member of the North West Mounted Police.He joined the local militia as a teenager and fought against the Fenians at the Battle of Ridgeway. He was sent west first to fight the Red River Rebellion of Louis Riel, but arrived after the Métis had surrendered. Steele had long been fascinated by the west, devouring the works of James Fenimore Cooper in his youth. He was especially interested in the First Nations, and spent his time in the west learning from them and the Metis. However he was recalled from Manitoba and based in Fort Henry in Kingston for the next few years.He was chosen to be one of the first members of the NWMP, being only the third officer sworn in. In 1873 he returned to Fort Garry with the new force and was put in charge of drilling the new recruits. Over the next few years he crisscrossed the prairies, before being assigned to NWMP headquarters to train new recruits.In 1881 he was assigned to meet with Sitting Bull, who fresh from defeating General Custer had moved into Canada and was demanding land for his people. Steele and a few officers met them and reached a peaceful agreement. This action won Steele great acclaim in the newspapers of the United States and was the beginning of his role as a public figure.In the North-West Rebellion Steele was dispatched with a small force. Missing the Battle of Batoche Steele and his force were sent to move against the last rebel force lead by Chief Big Bear. Steele and his two dozen Mounties defeated Big Bear's force at Loon Lake in the last battle ever fought on Canadian territory. The contributions of the NWMP to putting down the rebellion went largely ignored and unrewarded, to Steele's great annoyance. Steele spent the next ten years assigned to Fort McLeod, and at age 41 married Maria Harwood, eventually the couple had three children.In 1898 he was sent north to the Yukon to succeed Charles Constantine with policing during the Klondike Gold Rush. Initially, he was in charge of the customs posts at the Chilkoot Pass and White Pass, where he created the rule that no one would be allowed to enter without a ton of goods. Steele and his force made the Klondike Gold Rush into one of the most orderly events of its kind in history and made the police force famous around the world, which ensured its survival at a critical time when the force's dissolution was being debated in parliament.In 1900 he was second in command in Lord Strathcona's Horse, a Canadian light cavalry unit sent to South Africa during the Boer war and did so with distinction. Steele, however, disliked greatly what he was ordered to do by the British, which included burning towns and moving the populace to concentration camps.Steele was knighted in 1918 and was made a Companion of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, and Member of the Royal Victorian Order.Canada's fifth tallest mountain, Mount Steele, is named after him..

        The American Game Cock Or The Old-Fashioned Game

      Game Fowl Monthly, Sayre, PA 1898 - Octavo, 189pp., Light wear to cover. Old names inside. Very scarce book with details and equipment for cock fighting. Hinges just starting. A cockfight is a blood sport between two roosters ( cocks), held in a ring called a cockpit. Cockfighting is now illegal throughout all states in the United States, Brazil, Australia and most of Europe. The combatants, referred to as gamecocks, are specially bred birds,conditioned for increased stamina and strength. The comb and wattle are cut off in order to meet show standards of the American Gamefowl Society and the Old English Game Club and to prevent freezing in colder climates. Cocks possess congenital aggression toward all males of the same species. Cocks are given the best of care until near the age of two years old. They are conditioned, much like professional athletes prior to events or shows. Wagers are often made on the outcome of the match. While not all fights are to the death, the cocks may endure significant physical trauma. In many other areas around the world, cockfighting is still practised as a mainstream event; in some countries it is government controlled. Cockfighting is considered a blood sport by animal welfare and animal rights activists and others, due in some part to the physical trauma the cocks inflict on each other. Advocates of the sport often list cultural and religious relevance as reasons for perpetuation of cockfighting as a sport. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Pale foxing to perhaps two dozen plates, otherwise fine, the satiny paper clean and fresh, and THE LOVELY BINDING IN FLAWLESS CONDITION. This is a gracefully printed edition of De Vigny's collection of philosophical poems, accompanied here by extra illustrations and in a binding done by the younger Marius Michel in a style that features elements favored by both father and son. Alfred Victor de Vigny (1797-1863) was a successful French poet, playwright, and novelist who in 1845 became a member of the Académie Française. In 1838, he inherited the property of Maine-Giraud, near Angoulême, and in seclusion there wrote some of his most famous poems, including "La Maison du Berger," a work Proust regarded as the greatest French poem of the 19th century. Painter, lithographer, and engraver Georges Bellenger (1847-1915) was a precocious talent. An early member of the Salon, he was considered an excellent artist, "possessing a strong vein of individuality." (Duma's "Art Annual" of 1882) The sonnet to De Vigny that comprises the second part of the present volume is by Sully Prudhomme (1839-1907), the French poet and essayist who in 1901 became the first winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Our copy is from the library of the celebrated 19th century French bibliophile, Léon Rattier, whose collection was renowned for its beauty and uniformly outstanding condition. Rattier was married to the cousin of Edmond de Goncourt, one of the arbiters of taste in Belle Epoque Paris, and volumes from his library are always aesthetically pleasing. Rattier's collection of illustrated books in fine bindings was recorded in Henri Leclerc's 1920 catalogue, and Rattier volumes made up much of the sale held at Drouot on 6 June 1984. Our binding features an exterior with a classical design that would have been approved of by the elder Marius Michel (who had died eight years before the present book was published); the doublures, with their fanciful frame of lively floral and leafy inlays, are more in keeping with the new look pioneered by Marius Michel fils.

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 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cram's Standard American Railway System Atlas of the World.

      Chicago and New York: George F. Cram, 1897 [front cover says 1898]. - Folio, (18 x 13 ½ inches). 22-page Attorney's Directory, 17-page Select Bank List. 195 chromolithographed maps (many double-page). Original publisher's brown cloth, the front cover and spine lettered in silver (rubbed with one or two surface abrasions). First edition, later issue, first published in 1891. Formed in 1869, the George F. Cram Co. was a leading map firm and the first American firm to publish a world atlas. "With exceptionally bright colors, and crisp, bright paper, these maps are superior to other Cram railroad atlases. The maps' main emphasis, however, must certainly be the precise depiction of the railroad routes. Every railroad line is named, numbered and color-coded by a legend on the map, giving a detailed glimpse into the prolific rail-system of turn-of-the-century America. Cities, towns, lakes, rivers, creeks and mountain ranges are shown, counties are outlined in pink, and railroad lines are given in yellow, red, blue and green" (Central Pacific Railroad Photographic History Museum online).
