        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.

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.

        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]
