        Die Verletzungen der Wirbelsäule und des Rückenmarks.

      - Dtsch. Chir., Lfg.40 . - Stuttgart, Verlag von Ferdinand Enke, 1898, 8°, XXXII, 564 pp., 232 Abbildungen, orig. broschiertes unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar; feines Exemplar. First Edition of "the first successful account of the management of spinal injuries was by Wilhelm Wagner (1848-1900) a general surgeon working alone in a small workers compensation hospital, Königshütte Hospital in Upper Silesia, where he spent his whole career. He developed the practical treatment of spinal injuries and demonstrated how patients could and should be treated. - He wrote a book with his former pupil, Paul Stolper (1865-1906), on injuries of the spine and spinal cord. This dealt with every aspect of the subject. He started with anatomy of the spinal column, pathology of injury, the mechanism of injury, the symptomatology, and practical treatment including the indications for surgery. He understood the necessity of relieving pressure in preventing pressure sores and was concerned to prevent subsequent deformity. He identified six major problems: sepsis from pressure sores; treatment of cervical fractures; post-traumatic syringomyelia; infection of the chest; stones in the kidneys leading to sepsis of the renal tract; and the necessity of immobilising patients in bed until the fracture healed. - The textbook is remarkable in its breadth of vision and its emphasis upon such commonplace but vital aspects of treatment as how the patient should be transported and nursed. Particular attention was paid to the pressure points and positioning of the patient. Water beds were used. He emphasised the need to prevent soiling of the mattress in incontinent patients. For doubly incontinent patients special beds were designed, such as those used for cholera patients, with a bucket underneath that could be removed. Once the fracture had healed the patient was mobilised and put into a bath. - The object of treatment of the spine was to establish bony union. Wagner was opposed to operative treatment on the spine and recommended that radiographs should be used to estimate the position of the fracture. He recommended palpation of the kyphus to reduce a dislocation. He described in detail how a dislocated cervical spine could be reduced. He devoted pages to the description of how the bladder should be managed. - Wagner treated patients with spinal injuries and was able to mobilise them. He gave opinions in court about their life expectancy so they were probably returning home. It is remarkable that he carried out all this work alone in a municipal hospital without an academic position." - J.R. Silver, History of the treatment of spinal injuries.

      Havana: Impr. y Litografía de la Maestranza de Artillería, 1898. - Letterpress title (verso blank); contents page (verso blank); 4pp. text (recto only of 4 leaves); 1p. text (a table listing all 34 of the "Acorazados" or battleships in the U.S. fleet, recto only); 1p. text (a table of the 51 other vessels ["No Acorazados"] in the U.S. fleet, recto only). Thirty-eight plates (each with a tinted lithographic image of an individual vessel above cross- sectional line images and a letterpress table giving logistical details of the same vessel). Large folio. Dark green three-quareter calf over textured green paper-covered boards, the flat spine lettered and simply decorated in gilt. Very good. This volume, printed for the Cuban navy's artillery division, illustrates thirty-nine ships in the United States Naval Fleet in detail. Each vessel is illustrated in pictorial and schematic form, with a toned lithograph of each ship and three cross-section views. The U.S.S. Maine, whose sinking in Havana harbor was a precipitating cause of the Spanish-American War, is among the ships illustrated. On each ship, the most vulnerable section is indicated. In the introductory notes, the author indicates that the purpose of this volume is to prepare Cuba for counterattacks to which it may one day be exposed. A large and remarkable volume, and an extremely interesting piece of American naval history. OCLC records only a single copy of this work, at the Naval Historical Center, but also mentions what may be a second copy at Harvard (lacking a titlepage, tentatively dated 1897 and apparently titled BUQUES DE GUERRA DE LA MARINA DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMÉRICA). Quite rare. OCLC 39900517.

      Amica, Mexico. . 1898 - Pencil sketch, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches (visible size within the mat). Framed and matted. Near fine. Not examined out of frame. A nice pencil sketch by the acclaimed Western artist, Edward Borein, done early in his career. The drawing shows five Mexican men, seated and standing, wearing ponchos and sombreros. It was likely done by the young artist as a figure sketch. It dates to Borein's first sojourn to Mexico. Borein was working as a vaquero on a ranch in Malibu and creating art on the side, when the ranch owner financed a trip for him to Mexico. Borein went there in 1897, and remained in Mexico until 1899. The town of Amica is in the province of Jalisco and is located just northwest of Mexico City. Signed in pencil by Borein along the lower left edge. John Edward Borein (1872-1945) was born and raised in California. He worked on ranches as a young man before attending art school in San Francisco, and returned to ranching in the 1890s. He left ranching behind at the turn of the century to concentrate exclusively on art, and rose to the front ranks of Western illustrators. A nice, early image by an influential Western artist.
