        1899 ALICE in WONDERLAND & THROUGH the LOOKING GLASS, 2 vols.

      Mansfield and Wessels, New York 1899 - RARE FIRST EDITIONS, MANSFIELD & WESSELS -- TRUE FIRST PRINTINGS !! >>>>ONLY PRINTING, ALL BLANCHE McMANUS COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS! RARE FIRST EDITIONS, MANSFIELD & WESSELS -- RARE FIRST & ONLY PRINTINGS !! Yes, they are the ONLY PRINTING done in the Original Grey Cloth & Published by Mansfield & Wessels. The Second Printing (Edition) in 1900 was done in Mustard Cloth with Identical Illustrations on both book covers, unlike this First Set with Different Illustrations on the 2. Also, The Copyright was 1900 by Wessels only! There are a number of reasons why, including Wessels taking the Company late in 1899 & an error in the contents listing that needed clarification (Number of Color Plates in "LOOKING GLASS" Was Stated as 12 --IN ERROR! Publication was stopped after this printing, and the Company was taken over by Wessels who did publish it again in early 1900, but in the different Color Cloth, New Cover Designs, & CORRECTION of PLATE LISTING ERROR! That error was in "Through the Looking Glass" which had the specific error in which the number of Color Plates it was published with was Copyright 1899 by Mansfield & Wessels, Both in Very Good - Near Fine Condition. Mansfield & Wessels (New York) published the First Issues of Lewis Carroll's two classic tales to be fully illustrated by an artist other than Tenniel. Fortunately, they chose the incomparable Blanche McManus!! Similar Front Color Embossed Illustrations over Original Grey Cloth with Gilt Titles and yellow/blue/red characters, each title having a different character layout. __________________________________________________________________ NOTE: The question to ask when you view this and the Companion 1900 listing is this: Why were 2 Printings/Varieties, and only 2, done within 1 year of each other. That may seem silly to ask - of course publishers made many impressions of books over years. But that is not the case here. There were only these two (not counting the compendiums done later)! Other than the interpersonal complications of Wessels and McManus being Married at the time, There were two basic publication reasons: 1. The Original 1899 "Looking Glass" had a publisher's error -- specifically, the number of Color Plates it was published with was listed as 12 in the title page. But there were ONLY 10.Never any more! Dealers invariably mislabel their books as "missing" 2 Color Plates in the "Looking Glass". Now, if they view my listings, they will know the error -- an I will have given up a trade secret!! The 1899 clearly states Twelve (12); and the 1900 CORRECTS The Error, Clearly stating Ten (10)! It wasn't because they decided to remove only the so called "last two" Color Plates, and only those two, from the Second Printing. It clearly corrected the Original error that the turn-of the-century dealers and buyers must have vehemently brought to the Publisher's attention!! Their "Looking Glass" books were "missing" the last 2 Color Plates, as listed! Needless to say, in order to not lose credibility, they needed to IMMEDIATELY correct the problem. THUS THE SECOND PRINTING/EDITION/VERSION (You choose the term) was born. 2. The second problem (and I don't claim to know the reasons) was that Wessels took over the publication from Mansfield at the same time!! So what to do?? Wessels could not simply publish the same exact book with the one correction of the number of Plates in one of the two books.He did not own the Dual copyright; and, even if he could use the very same books with only a corrected Title page, Dealers and buyers might be confused by both changes - the number of Plates listed, and the Publisher's name. Thus, the Changed Cover Cloth from Gray to Dark Yellow was born! And, to further eliminate any confusion over the number 12, THEY REPLACED THE NUMBER IN THE 1900 ALICE WITH "MANY" (There are still ALL 12)! _____________________________ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Leipzig: B. G. Teubner, 1899. - Entire volume offered. 112 pp; 50 figs. Contemporary 3/4-cloth and marbled boards. Ink stamp on title page, else Very Good. 'There is hardly one result of his Grundlagen der Geometrie which would not have been discovered in the course of time if Hilbert had not written this book. But what matters is that one man alone wrote this book, and that it is a fine book. Grundlagen der Geometrie, published in 1899, reached its ninth edition in 1962. This means that it is still being read, and obviously by more people than read Hilbert's other work. It has gradually been modernized, but few readers realize that foundations of geometry as a field has developed more rapidly than Grundlagen der Geometrie as a sequence of reeditions and that Hilbert's book is now a historical document rather than a basis of modern research or teaching' (D.S.B. VI: 390). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Dichter (1875-1926): Eigenh. Brief mit U. Schmargendorf bei Berlin, 13. III. 1900. 8°. 1 ½ S. a. Doppelblatt.

      - Sehr früher und interessanter Brief an die Redaktion des "Montagsblatt aus Böhmen" anlässlich einer am Vortag erschienenen Besprechung seines berühmtesten Jugendwerkes "Mir zur Feier. Gedichte" (1899) mit Buchschmuck von Heinrich Vogeler. Rilke geht auf die lobende Kritik nicht ein, sondern bittet um die Korrektur der falschen Angabe, er habe seine erste nennenswerte Gedichtsammlung dem Illustrator und weiteren Förderern gewidmet: "[ ] in der Beschreibung meines Buches ‚Mir zur Feier` ist ein sachlicher Irrtum zu verzeichnen. [mit Stern eingefügte Anmerkung unten:] Nr. 11 vom 12. März 1900. Sie würden mir einen Dank erweisen, wenn Sie ihn in der nächsten Nummer richtigstellen wollten, umsomehr, als er nicht direkt mich [im Original unterstrichen] trifft. Das Buch ist nicht [im Original unterstrichen] dem Maler Heinrich Vogeler-Worpswede und dem Herrn Prof. Dr. August Sauer und der ‚Gesellschaft zu Förderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst und Literatur` - ‚zugeeignet.` Diese Namen sind nur darin notiert, mit der Bemerkung, durch wessen Freundschaft, Vermittlung und Theilnahme das Buch schöner und reicher werden durfte in seiner Erscheinung. Zu einer Widmung fehlte mir bei den Persönlichkeiten, sowie dem Institut gegenüber das Recht, da ja der Inhalt des Buches zu keinem von den dreien in irgendeiner persönlichen Beziehung steht. / Mit Dank / hochachtend: / Rainer Maria Rilke" - // - Die Besprechung in der deutschsprachigen Prager Zeitung "Montagsblatt aus Böhmen", liegt in Kopie bei. - Rilkes "neues Versbuch", das erstmals unter dem auf Veranlassung von Lou Andreas-Salomé (Schriftstellerin, Psychoanalytikerin, 1861-1937) eingedeutschten Namen Rainer (statt René) erschien, wird darin außerordentlich gelobt: "Es hat ein festliches Gewand, entzückende Arabesken und reizvolle Miniaturen des Vorpsweder (sic!) Künstlers Heinrich Vogeler umrahmen die Lieder, es ist stattlicher als die früheren Gedichtbände unseres Landsmannes, es ist persönlicher und künstlerisch entschieden reifer". - Der Autor bedauert die fehlende Resonanz und begründet seine Bewunderung für Rilkes Kunst: "er ist eine geheimnisvolle, aus einer überreichen Phantasie und verblüffenden Beweglichkeit der Sprache quellende Kraft, welche in seinen Versen zittert." - Dies alles vermag die Verärgerung Rilkes über die versehentlich unterstellte Widmung nicht zu bremsen. Den Maler, Designer, Illustrator und bald engen Freund Heinrich Vogeler (1872-1942), hatte Rilke 1898 in Florenz kennen gelernt. Im September 1900 wurde Rilke eingeladen auf den Barkenhoff, dem Domizil Heinrich Vogelers in Worpswede, da sich Lou, mit der er seit 1897 befreundet war, vorerst von ihm getrennt hatte. Dort lernte Rilke die Bildhauerin Clara Westhoff kennen und heiratete sie im folgenden Frühjahr. Der österr. Literaturhistoriker und Hochschullehrer August Sauer (1855-1926) gehörte zu den Intellektuellen in Rilkes Geburtsstadt Prag. Er begründete die Zeitschrift Euphorion. Die "Gesellschaft zur Förderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst und Literatur in Böhmen", wurde 1890 in Prag gegründet und unterstützte in den tschechischen Länden lebende deutsche Forscher, Künstler und Schriftsteller mit Finanzierung von Druckkosten. - // - Wenn Rilke das Buch jedoch überhaupt jemandem gewidmet hätte, dann nur Lou Andreas-Salomé. Ursprünglich wollte er für die Freundin eine Gedichtsammlung mit dem Titel "Dir zur Feier" veröffentlichen. - Dass Rilke zur Zeit unseres Briefes noch ganz im Banne Lous war, zeigt schon der Absender. Er war der 14 Jahre älteren Geliebten nach Berlin Schmargendorf gefolgt und bewohnte 1898 bis 1900 eine Wohnung in der Villa Waldfrieden in Lous unmittelbaren Nachbarschaft. Dort entstand nicht nur unser Brief, sondern berühmte Werke wie der Cornet. Endgültig beendete Lou die Liebesbeziehung mit dem Abschiedsbrief vom 26. Februar 1901. Die leidenschaftliche Beziehung ging über in eine enge Freundschaft, die bis zu Rilkes Tod anhielt. 1905 widmete er ihr das "Stunden-Buch". - Kleiner Einriss [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Textura del sistema nervioso del hombre y de los vertebrados.

      Nicolás Moya 1899-1904, Madrid - A fine copy of the very rare first edition. "This monumental work sets out the cytological and histological foundations of modern neurology. Ramón y Cajal’s research confirmed the neuron doctrine; his classification of neurons provided a histological basis for cerebral localization. His descriptions of the cerebral cortex are still the most authoritative." (GM). Only eight hundred copies were printed of this work, ABPC list just one copy; the Hardman copy bought by Norman in 1981 (but not offered again at the Norman sale).?Grolier, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine 86; Garrison-Morton 1293.1. "The work of Santiago Ramón y Cajal provided the foundation for present concepts of the cellular composition of the nervous system. Improving and refining existing histological techniques and developing new ones of his own, he demonstrated the microscopic anatomy of the brain as it had never before been seen, and correlated the cellular structures of the brain, nerves, and spinal cord with their functions, giving neurophysiology for the first time a firm anatomic base. Utilizing his remarkable skill as an artist and draftsman, Cajal was able, through the illustrations in his books, to convey to the scientific world what was revealed of the nervous system through his microscope. "Cajal was born in Navarre in northeastern Spain, the son of a country doctor. In his autobiography he revealed that he was an unusually poor and inattentive student who preferred to draw rather than study. He received his medical education in Saragossa, after which he served in the Spanish Army in Cuba. In 1877 he was appointed temporary professor of anatomy in Saragossa and later served as a full professor in Valencia, Barcelona, and Madrid successively. It was in Madrid that he carried out his major work. "Cajal was interested in histology from the first, beginning his work on the peripheral nervous system in 1880. At that time nerve cells and their processes were extremely difficult to observe because of their resistance to staining with conventional dyes. In 1887 Cajal learned of the precipitated silver chromate stain devised by the Italian anatomist Camillo Golgi, who had first reported its use in 1875; employing this stain, Golgi was able to observe minute details of nerve cells for the first time. Although this was a major breakthrough, the stain had been largely ignored because it was very difficult to use. Cajal adopted Golgi’s technique, refined it, made it more predictable, and thereafter based most of his work on this improved stain. He made other advances when he began concentrating on the more visible cells and fibers present in the less complicated embryologic and neonatal nervous system, and when he took advantage of the unique staining characteristics of degenerating neurons to reveal the separate paths that nerve cell processes follow through the brain. Cajal’s work convinced him that each nerve or neuron was a distinct entity, touching but not being in continuity with other cells. In 1888 he published an im’portant paper in which he affirmed this ‘neuron’ doctrine - a controversial subject at the time, as it contradicted the widely accepted ‘reticular’ theory that all nerves in the brain were in continuity. In this controversy Cajal had no less an adversary than Golgi himself, an adherent of the reticular theory; however, subsequent research proved that the neuron doctrine was correct. Cajal and Golgi shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1906 ["in recognition of their work on the structure of the nervous system"]. "Cajal studied all parts of the nervous system in both humans and animals, sketching the microscopic appearance of the cells and their processes with the aid of a camera lucida attached to his microscope so that it projected images directly onto a sheet of paper. Cajal’s articles and books are all magnificently illustrated, and his drawings of the microscopic appearance of the nervous system continue to be reprinted. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Second Tunnel, Grand River Canyon, Colorado

      Detroit Photographic Company - A large format scarce chromo-lithograph of Glenwood Canyon, Colorado, from William Henry Jackson's photos of the late 1800s. The image measures 21" x 17" and is attached to a mount with the caption Scenes Along the Line of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad and a railroad logo. The upper right corner of the mount is missing, there are tears up to six inches, and a triangular piece about two inches long has been put back into place on the lower edge, extending about 1/4" into the image area. The image has just the lightest soil. The imprint has the photo caption on the left and "Copyright 1899, Detroit Photographic Co" on the right, from the company that bought Jackson's massive negative collection. The colors are strikingly realistic and the color detail of the vegetation is fine. Large prints of Jackson's are hard to find, with large color lithographs even scarcer. ; 23 1/2" x 19"
