        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]

        Philosophical Conceptions and Practical Results. The Annual Public Address before the Union. August 26, 1898.

      Berkeley: The University Press, 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". McDermott 1898-3. See Frederick Burckhardt, Fredson Bowers, and Ignas K. Skrupkelis (eds.), William James: Essays in Philosophy, vol. 5 of The Works of William James (Harvard University Press, 1978); Ralph Barton Perry, The Thought and Character of William James, vol. 2 (Boston: Little Brown, 1935), p. 129.

        S/W Porträtfotographie. [ca. 22,5 x 17,4 cm].

      [Prag?], -, o. J. Mit hds. Bleistift-Titelei auf der Rückseite. - Nach einer Fotografenlehre im Atelier Antonin Mattas in Príbram von 1898 bis 1901 besuchte Drtikol, (1883 - 1961), von 1901 bis 1903 die Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt für Photographie in München (später umbenannt in Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Lichtbildwesen und ab 1990 in Staatliche Fachakademie für Fotodesign München). Nach dem Militärdienst 1907, betrieb er bis 1935 ein eigenes Studio, zunächst in Príbram, später in Prag. 1945/46 war Drtikol Professor an der Schule für Graphik in Prag. Schwerpunkt seiner Arbeit war die Aktphotographie. In seinen frühen Werken lässt sich der Einfluss des Prager Symbolismus und \"Art Nouveau\" erkennen. In den 1920er und 30er Jahren prägten Stummfilm, Avantgarde und Art Deco sein Schaffen. Noch vor dem 2. Weltkrieg gab František Drtikol die Photographie auf und widmete sich fortan der Malerei. Sein Ruhm schwand und er starb 1961 einsam und vergessen. Erst in jüngerer Zeit nimmt sein Werk wieder einen hohen Stellenwert in der Geschichte der tschechischen Photographie ein.

        Doctor Theodor Herzl: A Biography].

      Satanovskiy Ekaterinoslav 1898 - Small octavo (20 x 13 cm). 23 pp., with a portrait of Herzl; some light spotting. Publisher's wrappers. Rare first edition of the biography of Theodor Herzl in Russian published in his lifetime and only a year after the First Zionist Congress. From the note on page 3 we known that the work was compiled by Reuben Brainin (1862, near Vitebsk, Belarus – 1939, New York), a Russian Jewish publicist, biographer and literary critic. At different times Brainin contributed to the periodicals "Ha-Meliz," "Ha-Zefirah," "Ha-Maggid," and "Ha-Shiloah." making his name as an intermediary between Western and Jewish literature and culture. He also wrote about one hundred biographical sketches of modern Jewish scholars and writers. In this publication Brainin included a text of the Herzl's speech given at the First Zionist Congress in Basel in 1897, which laid the foundations for the political process culminating in the creation of the state of Israel. The biography was translated into English and published under the title "The Life of Herzl" in New York in 1919. Very rare. WorldCat locates only two copies in public libraries: in the Yeshiva University, New York and the National Library of Israel; NYPL holds only a microform. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Publisher's original green cloth, image of excavation teams with camels blocked in gilt to upper covers, lettered in gilt, top edges gilt; pp. xx, 663; xii, 665-1278; photogravure frontispiece to each, numerous illustrations including some coloured, 2 large folding coloured maps; light spotting at front and rear of each, but otherwise a remarkably bright, fresh set. First English edition of the book that established Hedin's fame. 'This work does not claim to be anything more than a plain account of my journeys through Asia during the years 1893 and 1897' (Preface). Hedin's travels took him through the Pamir steppes, the deserts of Taklamakan and the Lob-nor region, Tsaidam and Southern Tibet. They form part of the tradition of Central Asian exploration catalogued by Hedin himself in the opening chapter of the work. A lovely set of this absorbing work. Yakushi H97b.

Abb., 5 Taf., OBrosch.Heinrich Dreser (1860-1924), chemist and opportunist, was one of the most influential men of his age between 1897 and 1914, Dreser worked for Bayer, the former dye factory that was to become the first of the world's pharmaceutical giants, in Elberfeld (Wuppertal), north-west Germany. Dreser was responsible for the launch of two drugs that have shaped the way we live: aspirin, the world's most successful legal drug and heroin, the most successful illegal one. He was admired for his thorough, methodical approach, and for his innovations in testing, he was, for example, the first chemist to use animal experiments on an industrial scale.Diacetylmorphine was first synthesized in 1874 by Charles Robert (Romley) Alder Wright (1844-1894), an English chemist working at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, but his invention did not lead to any further developments.23 years later by another chemist, Diacetylmorphine was again synthesised by Felix Hoffmann in the Bayer laboratory in 1897.Already by early 1898 Heinrich Dreser was testing it on sticklebacks, frogs and rabbits. He also tested it on some of Bayer's workers, and on himself. The workers loved it, some saying it made them feel "heroic" (heroisch). This was also the term used by chemists to describe any strong drug (and diacetylmorphine is four times stronger than morphine). Creating a brand name was easy. Later, November 1898, Dreser presented the drug to the Congress of German Naturalists and Physicians, claiming it was 10 times more effective as a cough medicine than codeine, but had only a tenth of its toxic effects. It was also more effective than morphine as a painkiller. It was safe. It wasn't habit-forming. In short, it was a wonder drug - the Viagra of its day. -cf.

        Illustrated advertising envelopes for John W. Isham's Oriental America and Octoroons and the Octoroons' Hit Song, No Coon Can Come Too Black For Me

      New York City, 1898. Unbound. Very good. One of the advertising envelopes is from the Booking Office of John W. Isham's Oriental America and Octoroons and features ornate lettering and an oval half-tone portrait of Isham. The other cover is from Howley, Haviland & Company, the publishers of the Octoroons' hit song, No Coon Can Come Too Black For Me and features a large, dark-skinned African-American face enclosed in a yellow circle. The Octoroon cover is franked with a 2-cent pale carmine Washington stamp (Scott #252), and the other is franked with a 2-cent copper red Trans-Mississippi commemorative. The stamps and covers are in nice shape. One of the envelopes, from the Booking Office of John W. Isham's Oriental America and Octoroons, features a portrait of Isham. The other is from Howley, Haviland & Company, the publishers of the Octoroons' hit song, No Coon Can Come Too Black For Me and features a large, dark-skinned African-American face. The covers are franked with a 2-cent pale carmine Washington stamp (Scott #252) and a 2-cent Trans-Mississippi commemorative (Scott# 286). The stamps and covers are in nice shape. John Isham was an African-American theatrical entrepreneur who broke into advertising and managerial positions by passing for white. By 1890, he had become the advance man for Sam T. Jack's Creole Burlesque Show, the first African American show to replace its male minstrels with beautiful black chorus girls and to feature original songs, sketches and comedy by black artists. His work contributed greatly to the acceptance of quality black entertainment, and he was recognized by the Indianapolis Freeman newspaper as having "done more for the advancement of the colored race in all America than any other man since the day of its emancipation." Isham struck out on his own in 1895, forming what became the Octoroons. The company featured a chorus line and a musical story line that centered on New York City. The Octoroon's were popular with both black and white audiences and toured for five years. It's faced-paced, "reverse-coon" song, No Coon Can Come Too Black For Me, sang the praises of dark-skinned men, "The blacker they come, the better I like 'em. All them yaller babies, I'm bound to slight 'em." Isham created a second sshow, Oriental America, which was the first all-black show to appear on Broadway. By 1898, Isham had three companies, two touring the United States and one traveling throughout Great Britain. He retired in 1900, and turned the shows over to his brother William, who promptly converted them to a low-class "coon-show" that he named King Rastus. As of 2017, OCLC shows no institutions hold any Octoroons, Oriental America, or Howley-Haviland advertising materials. None is for sale in the trade, and no auction records are found at ABPC, the Rare Book Hub, nor Worthpoint.

        Lehrbuch der Röntgen-Untersuchung zum Gebrauche für Mediciner von Hermann Gocht, Sekundärarzt der Chir.-Orth. Klinik von Prof. dr. Hoffa zu Würzburg.

      Stuttgart, Ferdinand Enke Verlag, 1898, 8, VIII, 232 pp., mit 58 in Text gedruckten Abbildungen, Halbleinenband der Zeit St.a.Tit feines Exemplar. Meileinstein der Radiologie - Erste Auflage des ersten Lehrbuch über die Röntgenuntersuchung für Ärzte. "Es wurde das eigentliche Lehrbuch seiner Zeit und fand ungeteilten Beifall im In- und Ausland denn es beruhte auch auf einer Zusammenstelllung aller bis dahin erzeilten Ergebnisse zur neuen Wissenschaft "Röntgenologie" aus aller Welt und brachte den Weg bahnend einen reichen Schatz eigner Erfahrungen und Beobachtungen ärztlicher Anwendung der Röntgenstrahlen. Aus diesem "Lehrbuch", welches Gocht ab 1903 bei der Zweitauflage als "Handbuch der Röntgenlehre bezeichntete, zweigte er mit der 3.Auflage (1911) das Sammelwerk "Die Röntgen-Literatur" ab, nachdem die von ihm von allem Anfang an gesammelte Literatur aus aller Welt infolge ihres gewaltig zugenommenen Umfanges nicht mehr anhangsweise gebracht werden konnte." Das sich daraus entwickelnde "Handbuch der Röntgenlehre" erlebte mehrere Auflagen und wurde 1936 auf 15 Bände erweitert. Hermann Gocht (1869-1938), Pionier der Röntgenologie, Extraordinarius für Orthopädie in Berlin 1915, Mitbegründer der Deutschen Röntgengesellschaft 1905 - hat in Tübingen, Berlin, Erlangen und Halle Medizin studiert. Nach mehrjähriger Assistententätigkeit in der Chirurgie, Hygiene und Pathologie wurde er Mitarbeiter von A. Hoffa in der Orthopädie in Würzburg. 1900 errichtete er in Halle eine private orthopädische Krankenanstalt. 1915 wurde er Direktor der Universitätspoliklinik für orthopädische Chirurgie in Berlin und 1934 auch des Oskar-Helene-Heim n Berlin-Dahlem. Gocht hat sich seit der Jahrhundertwende mit der Anwendung der Röntgenstrahlen befaßt und mehrere wichtige Verbesserungen in der Röntgentechnik eingeführt, sowie zahlreiche wissenschaftliche Arbeiten auf dem Gebiet der Röntgendiagnostik und Strahlentherapie veröffentlicht. Schon 1898 schrieb Gocht das erste "Lehrbuch der Röntgenuntersuchungen". -cf. P.Gerhardt

Speckled edges.= In the Latin and German titles to the final volume '.aliarumque regionum neotropicarum' and '.und andere neotropische Gebiete has been added; also, Kenntniss became "Kenntnis".

Mollusca, Echinodermata and Cnidaria are all well treated, and there are also fine papers on fish, herpetology, ornithology, etc. The papers, by various specialists, show the transition of zoogeography and descriptive taxonomy (predominant in the earlier volumes) towards embryology, anatomy, histology, and cell biology (mostly in the last volumes). This set comes from an old library, with its abbreviation on the spine feet and pictorial bookplate on front pastedowns; otherwise no library markings. Some worming in the inner joint of the first volume, joints of the the third and fourth volume weak.
