        Étude d'une nouvelle formule pour calculer le débit des canaux découverts

      Paris: P. Vicq-Dunod et Cie, 1898. Paris: P. Vicq-Dunod et Cie, 1898. First Edition. Three-quarter morocco. Near fine. First Edition. Three-quarter morocco. 8vo (252 × 165 mm), pp. 55, [1, blank]; one folding engraved plate printed in black and red; pp. 46-55 containing an appendix with 9 printed tables; text crisp, slightly toned; ink inscription to half-title; bound in three-quarter morocco over pebble grained blue cloth boards, corners slightly bumped, else near fine. Extremly rare original offprint from the Annales des ponts et chaussées, 4, 1897, inscribed by the author to William Cawthorne Unwin (1838-1933), then professor of civil and mechanical engineering at the City and Guilds College.'The son of a professor at Nancy, Bazin [1829-1917] attended the Polytechnique and entered the Corps des Ponts et Chausées in 1848. He was sent to Dijon in 1854, where he met Darcy, who assigned him to hydraulic experiments until 1863. He was engineer-in-chief from 1875, when he took overall responsibility for the canal de Bourgogne, becoming inspector general of the corps in 1886 and sitting on its general council. He was also a corresponding member of the Académie from 1900 and a non-resident member from 1913.'An innovator and experimenter of the first order in his field, for half a century no course in applied mathematics was taught either in France or abroad, which did not contain his formulas. He discovered and explained the fact that in open channels the maximum speed of the current often occurs below the surface of the water. He also explained the action of tide in a river and explained the phenomenon known as mascaret (tidal wave in an estuary).' (Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 26)The work offered here presents the results of Bazin's long studies in open-channel flow begun in 1865. His '1865 treatise on open-channel flow contained a wealth of new information, presented in a lucid style completely at variance with his notoriously timid manner of speaking. The tests had been conducted in canals of cement, wood, brick, gravel, and rock, with rectangular, trapezoidal, and semi-circular cross sections. For conditions of uniform flow it was known that - as in Darcy's pipe tests - the resistance depended not only upon the type of boundary but also upon the relative size of cross-section. In fact, whereas the Prony formula indicated that RS = (a + b/V) V2according to the Darcy-Bazin data this had to have the form RS = (a + b/R) V2which, with variation in the two coefficiants according to boundary material, gave results ranging from half to twice those of Prony's accepted formula.' (Rouse & Ince, History of hydraulics, pp. 173-174)Provenance: William Cawthorne Unwin (1838-1933) 'After receiving a bachelor degree, Unwin became professor of engineering at the Central Technical College, London (1884-1904). In 1868 he became an instructor at the Royal School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, Kensington (1872), later professor of hydraulic engineering at the Royal Indian Engineering College.'

        Complications Sentimentales

      Paris - Alphonse Lemerre, 1898. Paris - Alphonse Lemerre, 1898 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A volume of short stories from the French novelist and critic, Paul Bourget, written in French. Binder's label of Auguste Fonatine to verso of front free-endpaper. Bourget's reputation as a novelist is assured in some academic and intellectual circles but while they were widely popular in his time, his novels have long been largely forgotten by the general reading public. Impressed by the art of Henry Beyle (Stendhal), he struck out on a new course at a moment when the realist school was the vogue in French fiction. With Bourget, observation was mainly directed to the human character. At first his purpose seemed to be purely artistic, but when Le Disciple appeared, in 1889, the preface to that story revealed his moral enthusiasm. After that, he varied between his earlier and his later manner, but his work in general was more seriously conceived. He painted the intricate emotions of women, whether wronged, erring or actually vicious; and he described the ideas, passions and failures of the young men of France. Condition: In a half-leather Morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally smartwith just someslight rubbing. Internally, firmly bound. Armorial prize plate to the front pastedown. The pages are age-toned, but generally clean with some light spotting to the first and last few pages. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        The List of the Benefactors and Annual Subscribers with the ANNUAL REPORTS, from AUGUST 1846 until June 1900, inclusive.

      - Each report comprises 4 pages, folio, with a Supplementary leaf Medical Report for the year 1898. In cloth-backed marbled boards, rubbed and worn at the corners, the stitching broken at one point and a few leaves coming loose, the text corners a little worn and the fore-edges nicked and occasionally chipped in the margin, the Report for 1888 torn along the centre of both leaves without loss, one leaf with a piece lost from the top margin not affecting the text, occasional marginal damp-staining, some ink annotation. *The North Devon Infirmary, a charitable trust, was established in 1828 in Barnstaple. It was replaced by a modern hospital in the 1980s. The Reports list all the benefactors and subscribers, in order of generosity, give the names of the medical roll, provide accounts of the AGMs and the secretary's Reports, list expenditure and income, the Resident Medical Officer's Report, and detail the motions of thanks to all who helped during the year. In all, the Reports are a detailed and vital historical source for the development of the local, voluntary hospital system in England. However, they are even more useful when dovetailed with other sources. For example, the Secretary's Report for the first year here, 1846, states - 'We regret to find that the affairs of the Institution are not in so satisfactory a state as the Report at the last General Meeting induce the Subscribers to infer. In the absence of a sufficient supervision by the late Auditor, considerable laxity appears to have occurred both in the collection of the income of the Institution and the payment of its expenditure; the result of which is, that large arrears of subscriptions have been suffered to accumulate, and a serious amount in trademen's bills, with which the accounts had been debited, remain unpaid.' This veiled statement is given clarity by the account in the same year in the North Devon Journal, that the Secretary and House Surgeon of the North Devon Infirmary, J.Knox, commited suicide with cyanide on the day his accounts were to be examined. In 1846, the Consulting Physician was Dr. Britton, the Physician was Dr. Richard Budd, the Surgeons were Mr. Curry and Mr. T. S. Law, the House Surgeon and Apothecary was Mr. Morgan, and the Surgeon-Dentist was Mr. Borlase. In 1856, the post of Consulting Physician appears to have been eliminated and Richard Budd F.R.C.P. [1809-1896] was made the senior physician, retaining this post until his death. Interestingly, he became the most generous of all patrons in 1883, donating an annual £400 until he died in 1896. His successors were Drs. C. H. Gamble and J. Harper. Each Report also gives a brief inventory of patient turn-over; overall, by the year 1900, the number of in-patients since the foundation in 1828, was recorded as 34,309 - the number of out-patients, 105,208.

        Gastrophotography [cover title].

      - New York: Gastro-Photor Laboratories, [1930s]. Oblong small folio. (10 x 13 inches). Album containing 76 silver print photographs, comprising 4 of the Gastro-Photor gastric camera, and 72 stereo views of the interior of the stomach (mounted 8 per page), 14 typed notes or captions (all but one tipped to the facing pages, one tipped below), all mounted recto and verso on 13 leaves of black paper. Contemporary black pebbled cloth boards, lettered on the upper cover. Possibly unique album of early photographs of the human stomach, intended as a marketing tool for the Gastro-Photor: among the earliest endocscopic imaging devices. While efforts to photograph the interior of the stomach began in the 1890s and the first gastric camera was developed in 1898, the first widely used device for this purpose was the Gastro-Photor, based on a prototype introduced in 1929 by the Viennese physicians Otto Porges and Max Josef Heilpern in collaboration with the engineer Franz Gerhard Back. This was a miniature round pinhole camera with multiple apertures and a tungsten lamp, appended to a stomach tube, capable of taking 8 stereo pictures at a time. Its 360° field of view was intended to compensate for the operator's lack of visual control in positioning the camera. The album offered here was probably created for marketing or sales purposes. In addition to the numerous sample photographs, it contains a description of the Gastro-Photor and its use, and positive quotes about it from medical journals dated 1930 to 1936.

      Wiesbaden, Verlag von J. F. Bergmann, 1898.. 4°. XII, 199 (1) S., HLdr. d. Zt. a. 4 Bünden m. etw. Rückenverg. u. goldgepr. Rückentitel.. Erste dt. Ausgabe. - "Speichelbildung ist eine geläufige Erfahrung; sie kann auch ohne den Anblick oder Geruch von Speisen erzeugt werden. Bei einem Menschen kann sich diese Reaktion zum Beispiel dann einstellen, wenn er hört, wie im Nebenraum der Tisch zum Essen gedeckt wird, und beim Hund ist dieselbe Erscheinung zu verzeichnen, wenn er beispielsweise das Klappern seines Freßgeschirrs hört. In einer Reihe von Vorlesungen, die Pawlow in Petersburg hielt und die im Jahr darauf veröffentlicht wurden, befaßte er sich eingehend mit der Erforschung dieser Vorgänge und lieferte damit einen bedeutenden Beitrag zu unserem Wissen über die Physiologie der Verdauung. Im Verlauf dieser Vorlesungen beschrieb er den künstlichen Magen für Hunde, mit dem es ihm gelang, zum ersten Mal Magensäfte ohne Nahrungszufuhr zu erzeugen [...]. Pawlows Ergebnisse bilden eine Ergänzung zu denen Freuds, und viele schreiben ihnen eine wesentlichere Bedeutung zu. Wie bei Freud, so haben wir es auch hier mit dem Werk eines einzigen Mannes und mit einem völlig neuen Weg zu tun. Pawlow erhielt den Nobelpreis für Medizin im Jahre 1904" (Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 689f.). - "This first edition in German is the first translation of this classic work on the digestive glands, published in Russia the year before" (Heirs of Hippocrates). - Einband berieben u. gering bestoßen.

Including a frontispiece and further plates featuring illustrations by J. Ambrose Walton. Guy Newell Boothby (13 October 1867 26 February 1905) was an Australian novelist and writer. Some of Boothby's earlier works relate to stories of Australian life, but later he turned to genre fiction. He was once well known for his series of five novels about Doctor Nikola, an occultist anti-hero seeking immortality and world domination. In A Prince of Swindlers he created the character of Simon Carne, a gentleman thief in the Raffles mould: Carne first appeared in Pearson's Magazine in 1897, predating Raffles by two years. Condition: In a decorative cloth binding. Externally generally smart although somewhat rubbed, with wear to the head and tail of the spine. The hinges are strained. Internally, generally firmly bound, slightly strained in places. Lovely and bright and clean with a few marginal tidemarks, not affecting the text and the odd spot.

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force, An Episode of Frontier War, the first printing of the Colonial edition with the Indian errata slip

      Longmans, Green, & Co., London 1898 - This book is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. Here is a scarce first edition, first printing of the Colonial Library issue of Churchill's first book, bearing the unusual and rarely seen Indian errata slip arranged personally by Churchill. The author's first book recounts his experiences when attached to Sir Bindon Blood's punitive expedition on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. First printing copies of the Colonial issue were produced in small numbers simultaneously with the Home Issue. The harsher climate and condition of the colonies meant low survival rates and often poor condition for those few examples that endured. Complicating matters for collectors, there were no fewer than 10 different editions, printings, and binding variations for the very small number of Colonial issues ultimately produced from 1898 to 1901. Here is the important first printing of the Colonial issue made all the more scarce by the presence of the unusual and scarce Indian errata slip unique to this particular Colonial issue. Publication of the first edition of 1898 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. Per Cohen in his Bibliography: "Colonial Library copies are known with an unusual errata slip, which was prepared in India on or about 7 April 1898. It was, therefore, in all likelihood available in first edition copies in India before the domestic errata slips were available in London and certainly before the domestic errata slips were available in India." (Cohen p.14). Churchill was still serving in India at the time. In a 22 March 1898 letter to his mother, Churchill lamented the "gross & fearful blunders" of the first edition and stated: "I may catch the Indian edition, in which the absurdities would be most laughed at." Evidence indicates that Churchill himself personally arranged for the printing of the Indian slips, paid for them himself, and had them tipped into the Colonial copies before distribution. These unique errata contain four additional corrections not found on the domestic errata slip, as well as small differences in the other corrigenda. Given the provenance of the unique Indian errata slip, we can be confident that this copy originally sold in India, where the young author was serving at the time. This is an original, unrestored copy, meaning it has not been rebacked or had endpapers replaced like so many of the copies that survive. Condition is about very good given the edition and colonial provenance. The binding is sound with a forward lean, some wear to hinges and extremities, and modest overall soiling. The pictorial front board retains strong color with some surface scuffing and edge wear. The spine is nicely rounded with the gilt still clearly legible, though with some fraying at the spine ends. The contents are quite respectable for a colonial issue, with toning to the page edges and light spotting primarily confined to the prelims and page edges. The frontispiece and original tissue guard are intact and the maps are present and properly folded. The binding remains intact but a bit tender, with a cosmetic split between the half title and frontispiece versos exposing the mull beneath. There is an indecipherable previous owner name inked on the half title and the ffep has been excised. Overall, a well-preserved and completely original copy of this first printing of the first Colonial Library issue, sold in India while Churchill was still there. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A1.2.c, Woods/ICS A1(ab.1), Langworth p.15. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
