        Arte de navegar, em que se ensinão as regras praticas, e os modos de cartear, e de graduar a Balestilha por via de numeros, e muitos problemas uteis aì navegac¸ão, e roteiro das viagens, e costas maritimas de Guineì, Angola, Brazil, Indias, e Ilhas Occidentaes, e Orientaes ... Lisbon, Miguel Manescal da Costa, 1762. Folio (30 x 20.5 cm). With 21 engraved plates (1 folding), 1 nearly full-page engraving of a compass rose and about 10 woodcut diagrams in the text. Contemporary or near contemporary tanned sheepskin, richly gold-tooled spine, new endpapers.

      Borba de Moraes, p. 672; Rodrigues 1899 note; Sabin 62883 note; cf. Bosch 144. Third edition of a detailed Portuguese handbook of navigation, primarily concerned with navigation in the Portuguese colonies and former colonies in America (including Brazil), Africa and the East and West Indies. It includes 18 numbered plates containing 36 nautical charts, maps of islands, city plans, etc., most from these regions, and unnumbered 3 plates (1 folding) showing instruments (quadrants, sundials, etc.). The author's father Luís Serrão Pimentel (1613-1679) wrote a handbook of navigation in 1673, but it remained in manuscript until Manuel Pimentel (1660-1719) published it posthumously in 1681. This and his 1699 revised edition were shorter than the present work and had only 2 plates. In 1712, however, Pimentel greatly expanded it and added numerous plates, bringing the book more or less to its present form. With bookplate. Some marginal tears and worm holes restored in the foot margin at the beginning and end, but otherwise in very good condition. Somewhat worn at the hinges and with some scratches on the back board, but binding otherwise very good. A practical Portuguese handbook of navigation that remained a standard work into the early 19th-century.

        INDIANS OF SOUTHERN MEXICO: AN ETHNOGRAPHIC ALBUM

      Printed for the Author by the Lakeside Press, Chicago 1899 - xxxii + cxli (350pp), 141 monochrome gravure illustrations. "Indians of Southern Mexico: An Ethnographic Album" is Frederick Starr's beautifully illustrated ethnographic survey of the indigenous peoples of the southern states of Mexico at the close of the nineteenth century. It was printed for the author in 1899 utilizing letterpress and gravure in an edition of five hundred and sixty copies only at Chicago's fabled Lakeside Press. Reproducing photographers Charles B. Lang and Bedros Tartarian's albumen images from the author's 1896 and 1898 expeditions amongst the Aztec, Chontal, Cuicatec and Chinantec, Juave, Mixe, Mixtec, Otomi, Tarascan, Tehuantepecano, Tlaxcalan, Triqui, and Zapotec tribes along with a descriptive text, to this day it remains a standard work in the field. A handsome copy of this elegant tome SIGNED AND NUMBERED by Frederick Starr in black ink on the front colophon, as issued, showing only minor wear to the extremities and tips of its still bright, navy blue gilt debossed cloth along with a few insignificant surface abrasions to the front and rear boards. With one hundred and forty-one photographic plates and weighing nearly eleven pounds, this title's binding and hinges are notoriously fragile. The massive textblock exhibits some typical play and slight pulling to the signatures, however it remains remarkably sturdy given its age and weight. The rear hinge is well preserved but for two small starts, with the front hinge revealing some separating along its length that has been securely repaired using archival adhesive without the need for reinforcement. The endpapers and edges show light wear and soiling, while the plates are bright and crisp with the occasional minor blemish to the margins. This particular example (number 440 of five hundred impressions on "heavy plate paper") was circulated in the 1993 Museum exhibition "Mexico Through Foreign Eyes: 1850-1990" curated by Carole Naggar and Fred Ritchin, and reproduced in the comprehensive catalogue published by W.W. Norton. All in all, it is a spectacular age-appropriate copy of this exceptionally striking and important Mexican ethnography. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

O'Doul's is a quite uncommon signature -- though nowhere near as scarce as Heilman's, which is an exceptionally scarce signature. A superb and unique display item.

Er ließ die Villa von de Neapolitaner Pirro Ligorio (1515 - 1583), einem ungemein vielseitigen und phantasiereichem Architekten, Ingenieur und Antiquar bauen. Die Villa d‘ Este in Tivoli gehört mit ihrem Palast und Garten zu den bemerkenswertesten und komplettesten Beispielen der Renaissancekultur.

        True Blue Stirring Stories of Naval Academy Life: Clif Faraday in Command or the Fight of His Life

      (New York): (Street & Smith). 1899. First. First edition. Pages browned, with a few short edge tears, else fine in very good pictorial wrappers with some splitting and chipping around the staples. Most likely written by Sinclair while at Columbia University, when he was struggling to get by as an author of dime novels and pulp fiction; this novelette was no. 39 in the "True Blue Stirring Stories of Naval Academy Life" series. Although not listed by Gottesman, possibly one of the approximately 100 pseudonymous dime novels Sinclair wrote in this period while working his way through graduate school (the Fitch pseudonym was shared with Henry Harrison Lewis and Weldon J. Cobb, writing for the same series, so exact authorship is difficult to attribute). Sinclair did not publish under his own name until his 1901 novel Springtime and Harvest. .

        Chesapeake Bay, York River Hampton's Roads Chesapeake Entrance

      Washington D.C.: Published by the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, 1899. Engraving. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of a large in filled tear in the upper margin. Another expertly mended tear on the bottom margin. Image size: 37 3/4 x 27 1/4 inches. A fascinating sea chart of the Chesapeake Bay, produced by the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey. In response to the growing need for accurate coastal charts of America, Thomas Jefferson signed a bill creating the United States Coast Survey. Founded in 1807, the agency was responsible for conducting detailed surveys of the coastal areas, which were then carefully recorded in large navigational charts. These charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued American vessels. Ferdinand Hassler, a young Swiss engineer, was selected to establish the new agency, but various obstacles meant that the actual surveying did not commence until 1816, when Hassler began work on New York Bay. Hassler was succeeded by Alexander Dallas Bache who dedicated himself to surveying the country's extended coastline. Under Bache the quality of the engraving and lettering in the charts achieved a high standard and the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey became a permanent, and heartily supported government function. The work of the Coast Survey not only resulted in the most accurate charts of America's coastal waters, but pioneered the techniques and equipment used by later surveyors in mapping the interior of the country. Conducted under S. Pritchett, who ran the Survey office for only three years before becoming president of M.I.T, this detailed chart covers the Chesapeake Bay including the York River, and the Hampton Roads waterway. Water depths and sand bars are all carefully recorded, as are the various lighthouses along the coastline. Tides, soundings and buoys are also noted as well as weather signal stations and life saving stations. This is an important sea chart of this area and wonderful example of the maps produced by the United States Coast Survey.

A.Bier - Gabka/Vaubel, Plastic Surgery, 4,114,140; McDowell, Sorce Book of Plastic Surgery, 241. - Maxillo-Facial Surgery v. Esmarch was one of the foremost German surgeons of the 19th century. In his monumental and well illustrated military manual he stressed not only immediate treatment, but secondary treatment and plastic surgery of the face with extensive series of step-by-step illustrations. This book was clearly intended for quick reference of the surgeon in the war zone. Esmarch is renowned for his introduction of the first aid bandage on the battelfield, and his technique of artificial bloodlessness during the surgery of extremities.

        The River War, An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1899. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a collector-worthy set of the first edition, first printing of Churchill's second book with both noteworthy provenance and bibliographic interest. Published in two massive volumes in 1899, the first edition is compelling in many respects. First is the inherent merit of the work itself, which is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. Writing about the British campaign in the Sudan, Churchill - a young officer in a colonial British army - is unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. The work offers the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. Not only a compelling piece of writing, the first edition is also beautiful, rare, and bibliographically important. The large volumes are aesthetically striking, decorated with gilt representations of the Mahdi's tomb on the spines and a gunboat on the front covers. Each of the two large volumes is printed on heavy paper with a profusion of illustrations, maps, and plans. There were only 2,000 copies of the first edition, first printing. Moreover, this is one of the few Churchill books for which there was no concurrent U.S. first edition. Bibliographically it is notable that the first edition is the only unabridged edition to this day. Here is a collector-worthy first printing set, notably clean and unrestored. The boards are exceptional and spine presentation superior, with bright gilt, only minor wear at the spine ends, and just a barely discernible hint of uniform spine toning. We note a single small bump to the Volume II lower front corner and minor wear to the hinges and extremities, with a 3/8 inch abrasion to the Volume II upper rear hinge. The contents of both volumes are complete. The original black endpapers are present, as are all maps, plans, and illustrations, including the tissue guards at each frontispiece. The sole previous ownership marks are those of the original owner from the month of publication, confirming that this is a lifelong mated set. Spotting is mild for the edition, intermittent throughout. Gutter breaks are endemic to the massive volumes of this edition. The Volume I binding remains uncompromisingly firm and tight. The Volume II binding remains intact but tender, showing a cosmetic split at the front endpapers with the mull beneath still fully attached. The sole previous owner name is that of "C. T. Atkinson", inked on both front free endpapers together with the notation "Exeter College, Oxford" and the date "November 1899" - the same month this first printing set was published. Interestingly, the life span of Christopher Thomas Atkinson (1874-1964) closely coincided with that of Churchill. Atkinson was admitted as a Fellow at Exeter College, Oxford, in 1898. During the First World War, Atkinson held the rank of Captain with a posting to the War Office. After the war, Atkinson, who became an eminent historian, wrote the history of the Seventh Division - which counted 68,000 casualties, fourteen VCs, and was called by Great War historian Cyril Falls "One of the greatest fighting formations Britain ever put into the field." Of bibliographic interest is the lack of the publisher's catalogue, typically bound in at the rear of Volume I. Bibliographer Ronald Cohen speculates "I consider that copies without a catalogue were destined for sale in either the American or other overseas markets." (Cohen, Volume I, p.35) Given the definitive domestic British provenance of this set, it seems that the inclusion or omission of the rear catalogue was not simply a matter of export vs. domestic copies. Each volume is housed in a custom preservation case with dark blue leather spine stamped gilt and blind over marbled paper boards with marbled paper interior. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.1.b, Woods/ICS A2(a.1), Langworth p.29

        A spectacular Naval item evoking one of the most famous quotes in military history, "You may fire when you are ready, Gridley." Charles V. Gridley posthumously receives a gorgeous certificate for his heroics, signed by Admiral Dewey, the man who uttered those immortal words

      A beautifully engraved document signed, "George Dewey," as President of the Society of Manila Bay, 1 page, 14.5" x 12.5", [no place, no date, but c. May 1899], conferring posthumous membership in the society to Charles Vernon Gridley (1844-1898), commander of the Dewey's flagship, the U.S.S. Olympia, whose name has been completed in manuscript. Light horizontal creases, else fine condition with an intact foil seal of the society and a dark, bold signature. Admiral Dewey immortalized Charles Vernon Gridley on the morning of May 1, 1898, when he ordered the captain to begin the American naval assault on the Spanish fleet guarding Manila Bay. Over the next two and a half hours the ships of the U.S. Asiatic Squadron pummeled the ill-prepared Spanish flotilla, only withdrawing due to low stocks of ammunition. By that point, three Spanish ships were in flames and the Spanish flagship had been nearly blown to pieces after she attempted to charge the Americans. During the

Erste Ausgabe, späterer Abdruck! - "Erste Reihenuntersuchung auf Lungentuberkulose! - "Ce travail fut presente, sous forme de Rapport, au IVe Congres pour l'etude de la Tuberculose, le 29 juillet 1898, a Paris.." - Antoine Louis Gustave Beclere (1856-1939 ) der "Vater der französischen Röntgenologie", in dem von ihm aus eigenen Mitteln im Hospital Tenon eingerichteten Röntgenlaboratorium organisierte er Ende 1897 die erste Vorlesung für medizinische Röntgenologie in der Welt. Schon ab 1897 ließ er allen Patienten seiner Station bei ihrer Einlieferung systematisch die Lungen durchleuchten; dies war die erste echte systematische Untersuchung auf Lungentuberkulose, Er setzte sich vehement dafür ein, dass die Röntgenologie beziehungsweise Radiologie nur unter ärztlicher Aufsicht angewandt werden dürfe. Ab 1902 widmete er sich auch der Krebspathologie und Therapie mit Röntgenstrahlen und konnte bald Erfolge beim Brustkrebs, bei Uterusmyomen, bei Erkrankungen des Verdauungskanals und erstmals 1908 bei der Bestrahlung von Hypophysentumoren vorweisen. - Beclere hat die radiologische Entwicklung stets auch außerhalb seines Heimatlandes verfolgt und privat sowie auf Kongressen engen Kontakt mit Fachkollegen gepflegt. Er war Inhaber hoher in- und ausländischer Auszeichnungen, Titel und Orden (unter anderem Ehrenpräsident der von ihm 1908 gegründeten Societe de Radiologie Medicale de France, Kommandeur der Ehrenlegion, seit 1928 Alterspräsident der Academie de Medecine, Präsident des 3.

        Aradia or the Gospel of the Witches

      London, David Nutt, , 1899. Octavo, original sage green cloth, title gilt to spine and in white to the upper board, top edge gilt, others uncut. Pictorial title page. A little rubbed, spine a touch sunned, endpapers lightly browned, text-block mildly toned, overall a very good copy. First edition. The work of a Philadelphia-born journalist and folklorist, Aradia, a study of the persistence of "la vecchia religione" in Italy, was claimed by its author to have been based on a manuscript account obtained from "Maddalena", a Florentine fortune-teller and witch. Although the subject of continuing controversy, the text undeniably exercised a persuasive influence over Gerald Gardner in the development of his ideas of witchcraft, and is widely considered to be the foundation text of modern wicca and stregheria. This original edition is extremely uncommon.
