Dibner 135, Garrison Morton 1022, Norman 1664; Heirs of Hippocrates 1105. - The first item is the first appearance of this classic work outside Russia and was not translated into English until 1902. Pavlov received the 1904 Nobel Prize in physiology / medicine for his studies of the physiology of digestion, which revealed the part that the nervous system plays in controlling digestive secretions. In conducting his researches, Pavlov introduced the method of long-term or continuous experimentation, which-in contrast with traditional vivisectional methods-allowed him to study the operation of physiological processes in healthy animals under normal conditions over extended periods of time. "The continuous method inaugurated a new era in the physiology of digestion and led to new work and concepts, especially in experimental surgery and in the physiology of the brain... The object of Pavlov&#39;s research was both the organism as a system and any of its separate organs that fulfilled a definite function" (DSB). <br><br> II. Garrison-Morton 1022, Norman 1665, DSB 10:431. - First edition in English of the greatest contribution to our knowledge of the physiology of digestion (PMM385). This is one of the rarest of scientific works which alone establishes an entirely new dimension with broad application to several other fields. Pavlov (1849-1936) describes his series of experiments which helped him establish the existence of &#39;conditioned reflexes&#39; and for which he won the Nobel Prize in 1904..

        1898 Spanish American War ~ 8 Document Archive ~22pgs~ Hospital Operations Cuba

      1898 - For sale is an archive of eight manuscript document written Cuba between May 23 and June 17, 1898. 22 pages (21 pages hand written & one page lank) 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. This is a fantastic and extensive archive of manuscript documents that describe the operational situation of a Spanish troop hospital located in a small town near Havana called Santiago de las Vegas. There are eight documents written over three weeks in may and June 1998. All eight contain official letter head from the "Comandancia Militar - Santiago de las Vegas" Translated summaries of the documents read as follows; Doc 1; Miltary Post- Santiago de las Vegas Because of the extraordinary circumstances affecting commerce the suppliers of the Hospital at Santiago de las Vegas have stopped their trade, due to lack of creditworthiness. The director of the hospital has been able, thus far, to act as guarantor for the supply of provisions necessary for the treatment and nourishment of sick people. However, this situation is untenable. We kindly ask that you authorize the Royal Exchequer to release the necessary funds for the purchase of supplies. Santiago de las Vegas, 23/5/1898. Signed: Alfredo Martínez Doc 2; Miltary Post- Santiago de las Vegas To the Commander of the Second Division The Administrator of the Hospital at Santiago de las Vegas kindly requests that the sum of 15,000 pesos be sent to the hospital in order to purchase necessary supplies.We have been forced to purchase supplies in Havana (having to pay cash for it) in order to ensure that the ever-decreasing number of troops have sufficient provisions. We are all in agreement that the requisition of supplies from the local trading posts will aggravate the situation in a significant manner. Signed: Santiago de las Vegas, 26/5/1898. Alfredo Martínez. Doc 3; Miltary Post- Santiago de las Vegas Since there is practically no supply of provisions, it is now accepted that there is no choice but to impose the requisition of supplies from the local trading posts. Signed: Santiago de las Vegas, 31/5/1898. Alfredo Martínez. Doc 4; Miltary Post- Santiago de las Vegas Due to need to provide food for the troops, it is agreed that supplied be requisitioned from the local trading posts, in accordance with the current legislation on the matter. The articles to be requisitioned include, salt, butter, coffee, sherry, chick peas, flour, potatoes and soap. Signed: Alfredo Martinez. Commander. Doc 5; Miltary Post- Santiago de las Vegas Commander of the First Division Dear Sir, The Administrator of the Hospital will initiate the procedure for the requisition of supplies from local trading posts. Signed: Santiago de las Vegas, 3/6/1898. Alfredo Martínez. Doc 6; Military Post- Santiago de las Vegas We expect the local tradesmen to abide by their patriotic duties and supply the troops with provisions, so we can avoid going forward with the requisitioning procedure. Signed: Santiago de las Vegas, Alfredo Martínez. Doc 7; Since we are in a situation of extreme need regarding the provision of supplies to the troops, and the local tradesmen will only trade those goods, the requisitioning procedure should be implemented. Santiago de las Vegas, 16/6/1898. Signed: Alfredo Martínez. Commander. Doc 8; Military Post- Santiago de las Vegas To the Commander of the Second Division/First Brigade Dear Sir, The Administrator of the local hospital asks for a second time that supplies be requisitioned from local tradesmen It should be noted that the local tradesmen are retailers, which means that they do not stock sufficient supplies in their stores. It can therefore be inferred that the requisitioning would only be helpful for a limited period of time. Signed: Santiago de las Vegas, 17/6/1898. Alfredo Martínez. Condition; documents are in very good condition with only minor wear. #555/1-8

        Sambo Book c.1898 Isaac Coale Rare True First Edition HB

      Rare, 1898 Hardcover of "Sambo Book" by Isaac Coale, Jr. Not to be confused with "Little Black Sambo", or "The Little Black Sambo", which were printed later. This book pre-dated Bannerman's Sambo books. With that said, the book offered here is extremely rare. A large book with paper boards and low quality paper, these book's were mass produced in high volume and sold at a low price. Hence, few copies have survived. This book has just returned from a professional conservator. The spine of the book was restored along with tissue reinforcement in the gutters of many pages. The paper of the book is aged and brittle and this work was accomplished to stabalize the book's condition. All pages are intact. There is a few chips to the edges of random pages. A vintage inscription is on the first flypage it is signed 1898 (see photo). No other writing to the book. Text on front board in red with black illustration. The color's are still vibrant. Front and rear grey green boards show age with most wear to the lower points. It is 94 pages. Text is written in dialect typical of that era. Not politically correct by modern standards, but typical of racial stereotype of the late 1800's. A significant and historical piece of Black Americana.

Cloth cleaned and resized, spine relined and neatly relettered, contents complete, clean and sound, a well-restored and very neat copy. First edition. Extremely uncommon, and highly sought-after memoir. "An adventurer and soldier of fortune, Gardner (1785-1877) travelled through much of Central Asia and Afghanistan before joining the service of Ranjit Singh in 1832. Carefully edited by Major Pearse, Gardner's memoirs tell in a rough-hewn fashion of his experiences as the Commander of Sikh artillery in the 1835 conflict with Afghanistan over control of the Peshawar Valley. Similarly, Gardner gives an accounting of the bloody internal struggle for control of the Sikh State following the death of Ranjit Singh. With the imposition of British dominion over the Sikhs at the conclusion of the First Sikh War of 1846, Gardner's memoirs recede into the record of his retirement years spent in the Vale of Kashmir" (Riddick). Near contemporary bookplate of Lt. Col. Norman Dunbar Walker R.A.M.C. to the front pastedown, Walker saw service in India between 1903-16, and again in 1919 n his return from the Mesopotamian Expedition, when he was mentioned in despatches three times.

Linda Hall 27 (ref.) - First edition, very rare. Krieger (1856-1902) 'was a gifted draftsman, but he realized that it make little sense to spend time drawing features that the camera could record. So he had the brilliant idea of adding the finer details by hand at the telescope. The resulting maps of selected craters were not equalled until the U.S. Air Force began issuing its own series of photobase lunar charts in the 1960s. 'Krieger published the first volume of his drawings in 1898; it contained twenty-eight plates. Due to overwork, his health broke shortly thereafter, and he died before the contemplated second volume could be issued. His manuscripts were taken over by Rudolf König, and the remaining drawings were finally published in 1912. 'The posthumous publication contains one of the most impressive drawings of the crater Gassendi ever made. Gassendi has always been a favorite object for observers, because of the intricate rill system on the crater floor' (William Ashworth, Jr, The face of the moon, Galileo to Apollo, n 27 (1912 vol only)..

        The Story of the Malakand Field Force

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 14 March 1898. An Episode of Frontier War ... With maps, plans, etc. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles gilt to spine with gilt rules, and to front board boxed in a blind-ruled border, black-coated endpapers. Frontispiece portrait of Major-General Sir Bindon Blood, and 6 maps, 3 of them folding and coloured, 3 full-page. Illustrated bookplate. Cloth very faintly marked, extremities lightly rubbed, edges mildly spotted, partial tanning to a few early or late leaves; a very good copy indeed, entirely sound. First edition, home issue, only printing, first state, of Churchill&#39;s first book, this copy without the errata slip at p. 1, catalogue dated 12/97. Relates his exploits with the Malakand Field Force, led by Sir Bindon Blood, on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897. Based on Churchill&#39;s despatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail, and, as Churchill was still in India, the final editing was undertaken by Moreton Frewen, Churchill&#39;s uncle, husband of Clara Jerome, Jennie&#39;s elder sister, resulting in numerous small errors which were corrected the following year in the Silver Library edition. Churchill had a clear purpose in writing these pieces, as he wrote to his mother, "I had written them with a design, a design which took form as the correspondence advanced, of bringing my personality before the electorate. I had hoped that some political advantage might have accrued &#133; I do not think that I have ever written anything better".

        Der Krieg. Uebersetzung. Des russischen Werkes des Autors: Der zukünftige Krieg in seiner technischen, volkswirtschaftlichen und politischen Bedeutung. Johann von Bloch

      Berlin: Puttkammer & Mühlbrecht, , 1898. 6 volumes quarto ( 250 × 174 mm) contemporary black publisher&#39;s half skiver on marbled boards, title gilt to spines, red edge-stain, marbled endpapers. Profusely illustrated throughout with plates, plans and diagrams, many of them folding, illustrations and tables to the text, many full-page. Ex-library set with the ink stamps of the Stadtbibliothek of Thun in Berne to the title pages together with the discard stamps of the University of Bern, a little rubbed, spines variously sunned, minor repairs to heads and tails of the spines, some stripping from the endpapers, tape repair to the front hinge of volume I, but overall a very good set. First edition in German, first published in Russian the year previously with a French translation issued the same year. This copy inscribed by Bloch on the half-title of volume I; "Herr Oberst Rohr vom Verfasser", and subsequently by the state librarian recording the gift of the set from Rohr&#39;s widow just two months after the outbreak of World War I. Decidedly uncommon inscribed. Never fully translated into English, an "abridgement," actually a full translation of the final volume, the General Conclusions, was published in 1899 with an introduction by W. T. Stead under the title "Is War Impossible?" Uncommon, a lost classic of nineteenth-century analytical thought. In January 1916 The New York Times carried a lengthy article headlined "Prophet of Trench Deadlock Vindicated. Ivan S. Bloch, who wrote seventeen years ago, foresaw &#39;Stalemate&#39; like that on Western Front today, and made many more excellent guesses," which, in trying to give credit, entirely misunderstands one of history&#39;s most original, but clearly unappreciated, thinkers. Bloch was a Polish-Jewish banker who was involved developing the railways of the Great Russian Company, his work on the scientific management of railways winning a medal at the Paris Geographical Exhibition on 1875. In 1878 he completed a massive five volume work analysing the economic condition of Russia with special reference to the impact of the railways, which he followed in 1882 with an apologia for government financial policies in the nineteenth century, and a monumental investigation into the conditions of life and industry in various regions across Russia, which also addressed the issue of origins of anti-Semitism, and the rôle of Jews in Russian life, Bloch had himself converted to Calvinism. Shortly before his death he retired from the business world and applying the same statistical methods that he had perfected in his analyses of industry and finance "&#133; immersed himself in the study of modern war." (Gat - The Development of Military Thought. p.109) For eight years he collected and collated data from a wide variety of sources and consulted Russian military experts, filtering the results through his own peculiar intelligence, "He brought to the study of war an entirely new sort of mind, one in which the analytical skills of the engineer, the economist, and the sociologist were all combined. His book was in fact the first work of modern operational analysis." Bloch foresaw the domino-effect caused by the complex tracery of alliances; the creation of an "impassable zone of fire deadly in equal degree to both the foes" on the battlefield; and the disruption caused to the complex interdependencies of the world economy which would be ruinous to the participants, bringing "&#133; even upon the victorious power, the destruction of its resources and the break up of society." The almost incomprehensible mechanism whereby the assassination of a minor aristocrat could lead the Great Powers to the verge of mutually assured destruction. As an avowed pacifist Bloch&#39;s rational analysis was certainly influential on the world "peace circuit", but the pre-Great War impact of his work in military and political circles was negligible, recognition coming late and generally grudgingly. Perhaps the most apt plaudit came from another eminent "forecaster", H.G. Wells, who at the time that the NY Times was congratulating Bloch on his "excellent guesses," described him as "the prophet who emerges with the most honour from this war." Wells also chastises the Allies for their failure to read him with profit, whereas; "His book was very carefully studied in Germany. As a humble disciple of Bloch I should have realised this, but I did not, and that failure led me into some unfortunate prophesying at the outbreak of the war. I judged Germany by the Kaiser, and by the Kaiser-worship which I saw in Berlin. I thought that he was a theatrical person who would dream of vast massed attacks and tremendous cavalry charges, and that he would lead Germany to be smashed against the Allied defensive in the West &#133; I did not properly appreciate the more studious and more thorough Germany that was to fight behind the Kaiser and thrust him aside, the Germany we British fight now, the Ostwald-Krupp Germany of 1915. That Germany, one may now perceive, had read and thought over and thought out the Bloch problem" (What is coming?).

        THE WAR OF THE WORLDS

      1898. [handsome copy, earliest ads] London: William Heinemann, 1898. 16 pp ads dated Autumn 1897. Original grey cloth. First Edition of Wells&#39;s classic science fiction tale of the invasion of the Martians, immortalized forty years later in Orson Welles&#39;s Hallowe&#39;en radio broadcast. Wells (spurred on by his brother Frank, to whom this book is dedicated) had always been fascinated by the idea of life on Mars (he had brought up the idea in his HONOURS PHYSIOGRAPHY in 1893). He wrote the book while living in Woking, near London, and the area behind his house was the scene of the first confrontation with the invaders. The book was an immediate success, helped no doubt by the population&#39;s perception of the growing threat of invasion by the powers gathering strength across the English Channel.~THE WAR OF THE WORLDS was finally produced as a movie in 1953 (the rights had been bought back in the 1920s); it featured a low-budget cast but "no expense was spared in getting the right special effects" [Wykes]. Stephen Spielberg has more recently produced a film.~This copy has the 16-page ad catalogue dated Autumn 1897 -- the first of two ad catalogues cited by Currey (the other is a 32-page undated catalogue headed by ILLUMINATION); we have seen a third, 32 pages headed by THE NIGGER OF THE NARCISSUS, and some copies have no ads at all. Since the other two ad catalogues list as "the latest fiction" books published in mid-to-late 1898, this 1897 ad catalogue is presumably the earliest. This copy is unusually clean, with practically none of the usual cover soil; except for minor cracking of the front endpaper, it is a fine copy. This is a book increasingly difficult to find in desirable condition. Wells Soc. 14; Hammond B5; Currey p. 526. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case.

        THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL

      London: Leonard Smithers, 1898. First edition. Very Good + to Near Fine. One of 800 copies on handmade Van Gelder paper. Very Good + to Near Fine with bright spine gilt and internal contents tight and clean. Top front corner bumped and spine very slightly toned. An excellent copy of this late poem by Wilde, based on his two years hard labor at Reading Gaol for "gross indecency." Published under the pseudonym "C. 3. 3." for his cell block because the publisher feared having his name on the work would adversely affect sales. & & The poem is based on a fellow inmate convicted of murdering his wife and generated one of the great lines from Wilde, "Yet each man kills the thing he loves." Wilde continued to revise his plays until his death in 1900, but said that he had lost the joy of writing and would write no other new works. An excellent copy, housed in a handsome slipcase with chemise. Very Good + to Near Fine.

        Spanish-American War Photograph Album - New York Volunteers

      Various: Photograph Album, 1898. Photograph album with 22 vernacular photos (all but the cover photograph are approximately 3" x 4") documenting military life in a New York National Guard unit camp during the Spanish-American War. The photographs appear to be of the 1st Regiment Infantry New York Volunteers as "NY" patches can be clearly seen on the shoulders of some uniforms and blown up images of some collars show large "1" pins. The 1st NY was the only New York Regiment to deploy overseas during the war. After mustering at Camp Black near Hicksville, its units made the western train trip to San Francisco, where it was temporarily housed at Camp Merritt awaiting transport to Hawaii. It arrived in Honolulu in September and remained there until mustered out of federal service in December. The photograph on the album cover probably is of the album&#39;s creator. Other photographs show camp scenes (probably Camp Black or Camp Merrit), officer groupings, the unit colors, a review, a mess tent, possibly a medical tent, and a ubiquitous blanket toss scene. There are two photographs of Eads Bridge that crosses the Mississippi at St. Louis and on photograph that may show soldiers waiting inside the San Francisco Ferry Terminal which was still incomplete and under construction. That photograph is especially interesting as in includes a Buffalo Soldier dressed in a Regular Army khaki uniform standing apart from the group. (Three of four American Army&#39;s black units deployed to the Philippines from San Francisco after first serving in Cuba; perhaps this image shows the units crossing paths in San Francisco in 1899.) The photographs and album are in nice shape; one leaf is slightly pulled and edge-worn. Quite scarce.. Photographs. Very Good.

        White Stains. The Literary Remains of George Archibald Bishop A Neuropath of the Second Empire.

      [London: Leonard Smithers.], 1898.. FIRST EDITION being number 3 of 100 copies. Octavo (217 x 174mm) pp. 131. Bound in recent full black morocco, five bands and gilt titles to spine. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed, with plain endpapers. A little occasional light foxing and thumbing to pages and a small closed tear to the fore-edge of title page. Bookplate of George F. Harding retained from previous deteriorated binding. The majority of copies seen are unnumbered; this copy has number three in black ink to limitation page. Among Crowley's most notorious works, Smithers had the anonymous manuscript printed in Amsterdam, a number of copies finally fell foul of British customs in 1924/5, when cases of his books and manuscripts were sent from Italy during the winding down of the Abbey of Thelema. Although certainly uncommon, White Stains appears more often than his other two 'erotic' works: Snow Drops from a Curate's Garden and Bagh-i-Muatter. A very good copy of this infamous collection of poems. Yorke [46]

        Autographed Typed Letter from Susan B. Anthony on the Stationery of the National American Woman Suffrage Association to Helen Pillsbury Cogswell, the daughter of Pillsbury Cogswell. Dated 19 December 1898. Includes the letter&#39;s envelope

      Rochester, NY, 1898. One page letter, signed "Susan B. Anthony". Letter and envelope are both in very nice shape. The letter has only some light edge wear, and there is some slight postal soiling to the envelope. In this letter, Anthony informs Cogswell that she has just received "some of the huge volumes of my biography" and notes that she will be dispatching a set to her shortly, "in memory of your dear father, mother and husband, and recognition of your own splendid services to them and to the world." She goes on to note that as they worked together on the book, her biographer, Mrs. Ida Husted Harper, would frequently say, "I do hope Mr. Pillsbury will live to read what I have said about him." Unfortunately, Parker Pillsbury died before the first two volumes of Stanton&#39;s biography were completed. Years before, Pillsbury, Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton had formed what Anthony previously referred to as "the Revolutionary trio" for their long-time and very close association working on the entwined causes of abolition and suffrage which they began as Garrisonians in the 1850s. Later in 1868, bitter and furious with the traditional abolitionists over their refusal to include women&#39;s suffrage in what would become the Fifteenth Amendment-something that Stanton described as "stand[ing] aside and see[ing] &#39;Sambo&#39; walk into the kingdom [of civil rights] first-the trio began publishing a weekly periodical, Revolution, which forcefully advocated for women&#39;s suffrage as well as addressed a number of related issues including birth control, divorce, prostitution, and abortion (which, probably to the surprise of many today, they regarded as infanticide). Pillsbury remained active in the suffrage movement until his death in 1898 at age 88. Anthony concludes her letter with an invitation to Cogswell for "a whole week&#39;s or month&#39;s visit." . Letter. Near Fine.

        Drawings By Thur De Thulstrup and Others

      New York: E.R. Herrick & Co., 1898. 22 plates, 36 x 52 cm. Each of the twenty-two color lithographs are in pristine condition. The binding is tight. Bror Thure Thulstrup (1848-1930) served in Sweden in the Svea Artillery Regiment then joined the foreign legion. He arrived in New York in 1974 to do illustrations for the Graphic and Harper&#39;s Weekly. This work became one of the finest not only for his vivid contrasts of the New York Upper Class with various elements of the lower class but also the war between the sexes. The rich colors of the men in formal dress and parties, card games etc are also matched with those from their counterparts in the Bowery and similar card games in the south of African Americans which while richly drawn cannot escape the charicature that was rooted in the white mind. The book is remarkably fine with each plate perfect with the original 1/4 cloth binding over pictorial boards. An uncommon item..

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED "MARK," TO RICHARD WATSON GILDER

      " Kaltenleutgeben, near Vienna." 7 May 1898.. 3 1/3 pages, in ink, on rectos and versos of two octavo lettersheets. Modest tanning, old folds from mailing, slightly weak at one fold, one word slightly smudged below baseline, otherwise very good. To "Dear Gilder," in the recipient&#39;s role as editor of CENTURY MAGAZINE: "If I want more, &#39;say so.&#39; A young person would walk into that trap, imagining it a promise, whereas it has only the gilded outside aspect of one ... But I am not a young person: I have had it & cannot catch it again. So I, who am the descendant of the horse- beck&#39;s daughter, say not a single word, but am amply content with the addition of that great compliment wherein you tell me it is the highest price you have ever paid to anybody for anything. I have had that compliment paid to me three or four times in my life, & in every case there was something upliftingly splendid about the feel of it. I think it must be the way a pirate or tiger feels when he has made a &#39;record&#39; ... I still remember the first two instances ... One was 31 years ago, when a now forgotten London magazine went down into its treasury & paid me $12.50 per mag. page for a 4-page article; the other was 22 years ago when the Atlantic paid me $18 per mag page for a series of articles. To be conscientiously accurate, that wasn&#39;t the highest the Atlantic had ever paid for prose - it had paid the same rate to Holmes for the &#39;Autocrat.&#39; Still, as you will easily understand, the &#39;feel&#39; was there: because to be rated with Oliver Wendell was itself a &#39;record.&#39; In those days the author hadn&#39;t his today&#39;s chance to scrape the fat off&#39;n an editor, but in those days there wasn&#39;t any fat on him - he hadn&#39;t either circulation or advertisements ...." Signed "Yours sincerely Mark [flourish]."
