        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Lund, 2. V. 1898.. 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Mit eh. adr. Kuvert.. An die Buchhandlung Wilhelm Jacobsohn et Cie. in Breslau: "Ihr verehrte[s] Angebot als Redacteur der Skandinavischen Abtheilung der Perlen der Weltliteratur' bin ich in Gelegenheit anzunehmen. Aber ich möchte zuerst wissen, ob es sich um eine Anthologie, Sammlung vorher gedruckte[r] Stücken [!], oder ob es ein Album mit nicht gedruckte[n] Sachen sein soll. Das Honorar für meine Mühe kann nicht so hoch werden, aber hat der Verleger die Übersetzungen zu bezahlen oder von Anderen [!] Verleger[n] zu lösen so wird das Ganze theuer. Da ich die Absicht habe in nächster Zeit nach Berlin zu reisen, so können wir da vielleicht ein persönliches Zusammentreffen zu Stande bringen [...]".

        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.

        DATOS SOBRE LA MARINA DE GUERRA DE LAS DIFERENTES NACIONES: ESTADOS UNIDOS.

      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.

        ORIGINAL PENCIL SKETCH OF A GROUP OF MEXICAN MEN].

      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.

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. Postgraduate Medical Journal 81 (2005): pp.108-114

        Falling Prices and The Remedy

      Boston: George Book Publishing Co.. Hardcover. 231 pages. History certainly does repeat itself as the following statement appears upon the title page: "Equity and justice demand that the merchant, manufacturer, farmer, and wage-earner shall receive as much consideration at the hands of the law-makers as is accorded to those who deal in money." Clearly, the author would not be a fan of Goldman Sachs and their modern-day ilk. Chapter titles include the following: Thirty Years' Fall in Prices; Disastrous Effects of Falling Prices; Opinions Regarding the Cause of the Fall in Prices; Money, its use and abuse; Our Money a Banker's Money; A Monetary System Which Will Restore Prosperity; Bimetallism as a Cure; Immigration; Trusts and Department Stores as a Cause; Overproduction; Hard Times - The Effect of "Improved Machinery"; Confidence; Supply and Demand; Review and Summary of Overproduction; Review and Summary of Bimetallism; Conclusion. Tissue-protected black and white photographic frontisplate of author. Bright gilt lettering upon maroon backstrip and decorated front board. Prior owner's signature upon front free endpaper, otherwise unmarked. Moderate wear. Binding sound. An above-average copy of this important and timely work. . Good. 1898. First Edition.

        The Wooings of Jezebel Pettyfer

      London: Grant Richards,, 1898. Being the personal history of Jehu Sennacherib Dyle, commonly called Masheen Dyle; together with an account of certain things that chanced in the House of the Sorcerer; here set down. Octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spine and pictorial design to upper board in black. Binding lightly rubbed and browned, a little wear to corners and ends of spine with cracking of the cloth at the head of the spine, which is tanned, hinges cracked. A very good copy. First edition, in the first issue binding, of the classic picaresque novel with a West Indian setting of Barbados and Jamaica. Vincent Starrett devotes a chapter to Haldane Macfall in his Buried Caesars (1923), in which he says: "Mr. Macfall will write other novels before he dies, but he need not unless he wishes. His fame is assured by those already written: 'The Wooings of Jezebel Pettyfer' and 'The Masterfolk'. Few better novels have been written in the language… Jezebel Pettyfer is a Barbadian negress, utterly reckless, unmoral and delightful. Even more adjectival are Jehu Sennacherib Dyle, her first recorded lover, and his amazing companions. Around this yellow pair, and its satellites, centers the long and rambling narrative of West Indian life… Old George Meredith enigmatically told the author that the book was the finest novel of his generation, but that it out never to have been written… a fire in the publisher's plant destroyed what remained of the edition". Tipped in are two autograph letters signed of 1927 and 1928, about six closely written pages, from the author to Scott Cunningham about Jezebel and drawings of her. With Cunningham's bookplate.
