        Six vintage gelatin silver photographs (each 120 x 177 mm) taken before the fall of Jerusalem on 9 December 1917

      Lengthy captions in pencil on the verso of each photograph are most illuminating, not least because they were inscribed by an Australian soldier in Jerusalem shortly after the fall. He is possibly a member of the 4th Light Horse Brigade, and accordingly a veteran of the famous charge at Beersheba (see below). One of his most important observations is that the photographs were produced by 'the Turkish army photographer who was left behind in Jerry and now sells the prints to us deluded fools at a bondman price'. These comments are among others written on the verso of a photograph of Australian prisoners of war: 'Some of our cavalry, looking pretty dejected, poor devils, at Jerusalem Station. The officer is ours, too. Note the jacko wounded in the rear'. We have traced only one other example of five of these photographs (albeit cropped differently), and two different variants of the sixth, in two named collections in the Library of Congress. The main repository is a pair of albums compiled by John Whiting (image numbers 75, 87, 116 ['Australians captured at Shellal'], 151, 179, and 205 [a variant image]; all of these prints are of an image a centimetre to the right and a centimetre lower than the six on offer). The source of the other variant image is the G. Eric and Edith Matson Photograph Collection. An informative (but not entirely accurate) online article by Issam Nassar, 'John Whiting's Album of the Great War in Palestine', gives details of Jerusalem's American Colony and the photography department it opened in 1898; 'Whiting, along with others including Eric Matson, was one of its leading photographers ... [and Whiting] might be the one who shot most, if not all, of the photographs in the albums'. The captions on this small group of photographs tell a different, more complete, and much more nuanced, story. For example, Whiting's prosaic caption on his number 179, '6th Cavalry Squadron', is more accurately described thus: 'Jacko cavalry on the edge of the plain our 4th L.H. Bde charged over into Beersheba. Taken two days before our attack'. Whiting has on number 205 'Last review by Jamal [sic] Pasha & Von Kress in Jer.', while our almost 70-word account commences with 'Review by Jemal Pasha, Jacko C. in C. on the open ground just south of Jerusalem and on part of which I am at present camped. X is now used as our army post office ...'. All in all, the annotations run to nearly 340 words, not all of them complimentary, no matter what the nationality. In one instance, he writes that 'These pictures will illustrate the fact that we are fighting an army on this front and not a mere ragged rabble as some good folk in Australia - home of the Fenian and cold feet - might be [tempted?] to think'. The photographs are clearly rare by any definition; these unvarnished observations make them uniquely desirable.

        The Surgical Complications and Sequels of Typhoid Fever. SIGNED BY WILLIAM W. KEEN.

      Philadelphia: W. B. Saunders, 1898. - 386 pp; 5 plates; text figs. Original cloth. Very Good. First Edition. SIGNED BY WILLIAM W. KEEN: "To Dr. Roland F. Fleck/ with the kind regards of/ W. W. Keen/ Philadelphia/ June 5, 1920." "In 1876, Keen delivered the fifth Toner Lecture on the surgical complications and sequels of continued fevers . which was published in 1877 as a 68 page monograph. In 1896, Keen delivered the Shattuck Lecture before the Massachusetts Medical Society. These lectures formed the basis for his Surgical Complications. He included in the volume the six complications and sequels discussed in his Toner Lecture and added a chapter on the surgical affections of typhoid fever and twelve chapters on complications of particular organs and regions. Most books on complications of surgery were not written until the twentieth century. In this respect Keen's work is quite remarkable" (Rutkow GS178).

        Philosophical Conceptions and Practical Results.

      Berkeley: The University Press,, 1898. The Annual Public Address before the Union. August 26, 1898. Octavo, 24 pp. Original light green wrappers, front wrappers printed in black. Wrappers lightly foxed and browned, an excellent copy. First edition thus of James's lecture in which he first pledged his commitment to pragmatism, delivered before the Philosophical Union in August 1898, considered the "opening gun in James's discourses on pragmatism" (Burkhardt, et al., p. 264) and laying the groundwork for his influential 1907 masterwork. There are two known variant states of the printed wrapper and title page. One accredits James as "Professor of Psychology in Harvard University", and the latter as "M.D., Ph.D., Litt.D., LL.D, Corresponding Member of the French Institute, Professor of Psychology in Harvard University". Our copy shows the latter. Neither state holds priority at present. The lecture was originally published as the lead piece in The University Chronicle in September 1898, and this pamphlet was printed from the standing type in a very small print run. In 1904 James remarked in a letter to the F. J. E. Woodbridge, editor of the Journal of Philosophy, Psychology, and Scientific Methods, that the "address of mine was printed in the Cal. University Magazine which had absolutely no circulation outside. I had 30 reprints which I distributed. Apart from that it can hardly be said to be published" (Burkhardt, et al., p. 266). At the time of writing, James owned two of the remaining 30 copies. Woodbridge would reprint James's slightly revised lecture in his journal later that year under the title "The Pragmatic Method".

        A Chinese and English vocabulary in the Pekinese dialect. By George Carter Stent, Imperial Maritime Customs. Revised by Rev. Donald MacGillivray.

      Shanghai: American Presbyterian Mission Press, 1898 Shanghai: American Presbyterian Mission Press, 1898. Third edition. Half leather cloth with corners. VG+. "(209x137mm.); 1 h., [V]-VII, 788 p.- // Half leather cloth binding with corners; gilt fillet edge of spine and corners. Rubbing to board edges and foot with loss of cloth. Spotless interior without signatures, annotations or any underlining.- // Refs.: Cordier, Sinica, 2ª ed., III, c. 1610. If the elaboration of dictionaries was part of the activities undertaken by Catholic missionaries in America, by both Jesuits and Franciscans, and in Asia by the Jesuits in the 16th and 17th centuries, it also became, from the decade of 1820s, a task for the Protestant evangelists and Biblical societies when they began the last great wave of the spreading of Christianity, in this case Protestant, outside of Europe. Continuing with this global work, the American Presbyterian mission in Shanghai reprinted the third edition of this vocabulary in 1898, the work of maritime customs inspector George Stent. The first edition of Stent s work had been printed in November 1871 by the British customs service in Shanghai, which also published the third and final version in 1877. More than vocabulary, this demonstration of patience includes a long list of phrases, or  narrated concepts , placed in alphabetical order of the transliteration of their pronunciation in the Peking dialect into Latin characters. So that, as the author notes in the brief preface, it is a vocabulary that takes its starting point from any expression that has previously been heard and, by its sound, provides information about how it is written in pictograms, what the meaning of the basic concept that comes into play is, and the major  ideas that can be built from it, as well as the writing of these related  ideas in pictograms. And as if that was not complicated enough, the author, so he indicated in the preface of the first edition, absent in this edition, set for himself the limit of not taking but one line per entry to simultaneously facilitate the organization of the information in columns and made it easier to search for the vocabulary."

        An Alphabet.

      Heinemann, London., 1898. First edition. The ''Library Edition'' with the tipped-in colour lithographic title-page and twenty-six plates printed on laid paper and bound in full pictorial oatmeal cloth, all edges gilt. Folio. The Alphabet was also issued in two other versions: a de luxe edition of about 50 copies printed from the blocks and coloured by hand; a popular edition with the plates printed on cartridge paper and bound in cloth-backed boards. This is the first of the five picture books that Nicholson published with Heinemann. The first image, ''A was an Artist'', is a self portrait, while the second, ''B for Beggar'', is a portrait of James Pryde with whom Nicholson developed a striking poster style under the name the Beggarstaff Brothers. Two of the plates differ from those in the de luxe edition, as it was thought that ''E is for Executioner'' and ''T is for Toper'' might not be suitable for younger eyes; here they have become ''E is for Earl'' and ''T for Trumpeter''.Covers rubbed at the corners. Spine tanned and scuffed, heavily in places. Very good. The plates are fine.

        1898 ?? ???????-???????. [Ionych [in] Monthly Appendix to Niva Magazine, 1989, October-December. ]

      Izd. Marksa Skt. Peterburg 1898 - Octavo (23.5 x 16 cm). [4], 855 pp., spotting throughout. Contemporary half-calf over red cloth boards, spine with raised bands, with gilt lettering and decorations in compartments; worn at extremities, some stains on boards. First appearance in print of this short story, one of the best examples demonstrating the author's world-renowned talent of describing a provincial everyman deprived of spiritual values and limited to struggling for simple pleasures and everyday comfort. Here, with the example of Dmitriy "Ionych" Startsev and other inhabitants of a small Russian town, Chekhov once again brilliantly demonstrates his self-invented concept of "obyvatelshchina" [babbittry] that implies a narrow-minded and complacent way of living of the members of the provincial middle class. Monthly appendixes to Niva magazine were first issued in 1894 and continued to be published until 1916, securing popularity for the magazine. This issue also includes works by Mamin-Sibiryak, Avseenko and Porfirov. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
