        TALES OF THE WONDER CLUB .

      Harrison & Sons n.d. [1899-1900]., [London] - Octavo, three volumes: pp. [1-5] 6-401 [402] [403-404: blank]; [1-5] 6-388; [i-v] vi-viii [389] 390-662 [663-664: blank], 23 inserted plates with illustrations by John Jellicoe and Val Prince after designs by the author, original maroon cloth, front panels stamped in gold, spine panels stamped in gold and ruled in blind, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in olive-green, upper edges untrimmed. First edition. "Omnibus collection of 'bloodcurdling' tales with decidedly mid-Victorian flavor, in spite of publication date; set in an old-fashioned frame, too, told 'round the Yule Log at 'Ye Headless Ladye,' a Midlands hostelry of the old coaching days circa 1800, by an informal club of travelers and their hosts. Enlivened by a Dickensean mixture of the cold grue and the grotesquely humorous: like the fat boy, they 'only wants to make your flesh creep.' Notable tales include 'The Phantom Flea' and 'The Spirit Leg' in volume I; 'Execution' and 'The Waxen Image' in volume II; Volume III has no fantasy content being mostly taken up with Gothic melodrama 'The Gipsy Queen.' Literary curiosities which seem to have strayed from an Christmas annual circa 1865 into a triple-decker, probably self-published by the author. Binding, design, and illustrations are archaic for 1899." - Robert Knowlton. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 87. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-50. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 565. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 72. Bleiler (1978), p. 64. Reginald 06648 and 06649. Some spotting and scuffing to cloth, mostly volume one, hairline crack along inner front hinge and partial crack along inner hinge of volume one but both holding tight, a very good copy, superior condition for this book.

        The River War

      00- London, New York andBombay- Longmans, Green and Co., 1899 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A beautifully bound first edition set of this famous work by Winston Churchill. Volume I is first edition, first impression, dated 1899. Volume II is first edition, second impression, as stated on the title page and dated 1900. Only 2000 copies were printed of the first impression, and only 500 printed of the second impression, making both volumes scarce for any collector. Collated: Complete, with seven photogravure plates, 34 maps and plans and numerous illustrations by Angus McNeill. Without the non-essential 32 page publisher's catalogue to the rear. The River War was Churchill's second published work, a history of the British imperial involvement in the Sudan and the Mahdi War between the British forces and the Dervish forces. The River War is a fascinating work of military which combines Churchill's deep reflections on the war, the historicaldetails, and Churchill's own anecdotes of personal adventure. Churchill's writing iscritical,both of the native inhabitants of the Sudan and the Britisharmy withwhom he fought, and provides a unique insight into this period. The work is famous for Churchill's scathing criticism of thecommander of the campaign,Lord Kitchener. Churchill recountsKitchener's desecration of the tomb of The Mahdi, the leader of the Dervish forces, and the criticism lead to Kitchener's behaviour being debated in Parliamentand fuelled the deepening ill feeling between the Churchill and the commander. The controversial passages were excised from the 1902 one-volume edition, which was greatly abridged. The abridged version is the work that best survives in modern paperbacks, making the first edition, two volume, unabridged work an important and interesting work for any collector. Condition: Rebound in red half calf bindings with contrasting black spine labels. Externally, very smart with some light rubbing to the extremities, heavier tot he head and tail of the spine. Label of the Argus Office, Rushden to front pastedown of each volume. Pencil signature dated 1901 to front free-endpaper. Rebound without the black endpapers or the publisher's advertisements. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright with scattered spotting throughout, mostly marginal. Heavier patches of spotting in places particularly to pages 154 and 337 of volume I, the map at page 154. All folding maps are intact and generally bright with just occasional odd spot or mark. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        A Vertebrate Fauna of the Shetland Islands.

      1899 - Edinburgh: David Douglas. 1899. 8vo. Original green cloth, gilt lettering to spine, t.e.g.; pp. xxx + 248 + [12, ads.], 15 illustrations, 1 map; slightly bumped to extremities, very good. First edition. A Vertebrate Fauna of Scotland series. A scarce and sought after volume, "one which should be indispensable to every visitor to the most northern group of the British Islands, whether or no he be specially interested in birds. For in place of restricting themselves to a detailed account of the various members of their vertebrate fauna, Messrs. Evans and Buckley have furnished a very interesting description of the more striking physical features of these islands, together with numerous notes on the people and their mode of life. But perhaps the most generally attractive feature of the work will be the exquisite views of Shetland scenery with which it is adorned; these illustrations reflecting the highest credit alike on the photographer and on the artist responsible for their reproduction in the present form" (Richard Lydekker, review, Nature 62, 75-76 ,24 May 1900). This remains a standard work. From the library of R.J. Berry. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"WENCKEBACH - LUCIANI PHENOMENON - Wenckebach observed for the first time, a form of periodic rhythm which is now called the "Wenckebach phenomenon. 1.: Zur Analyse des unregelmässigen Pulses (36: pp.181-199, 11 Abb., 1 Taf.). 2.: Zur Analyse des unregelmässigen Pulses (37: pp.475-488, 1 Taf.). 3.: Ueber einige Formen von Allorhytmie und Bradycardie (39: pp.293-304, 2 Abb., 1 Taf.). 4.: Zur Analyse des unregelmässigen Pulses (44: pp.218-225, 4 Abb.)."Karel Frederick Wenckebach (1864-1970) was born at The Hague on March 24, 1864. In 1888 he obtained his medical degree from the University of Utrecht, where he met and became a friend of Einthoven. While a medical student under the influence of Engelmann, he developed a keen interest in the arrhythmias. He published his classic work on the arrhythmias, "Die Arhythmie, als Ausdruck bestimmter Funktionsstörungen des Herzens", in 1903, shortly after Mackenzie published The Study of the Pulse. At that time, Wenckebach was Professor of Medicine at Groningen. Later, he held similar positions at Strassburg and Vienna. He remained at Vienna until 1929, where he established a clinic which attracted students from all over the world, particularly from America. Wenckebach, although younger than Mackenzie, was like him in many ways. Wenckebach was primarily a clinician. He worked with the polygraph and was suspicious of the electrocardiograph. An era in the history of cardiology began and ended with Mackenzie and Wenckebach. As a youth, Wenckebach had a great admiration for Mackenzie and at a time when Mackenzie was ignored by his own countrymen, Wenckebach went to Burnley to visit him. In 1930, five years after Mackenzie's death, Wenckebach made a pilgrimage to the Research Institute founded by Mackenzie at St. Andrews. Wenckebach was the first to recognize extrasystoles in man (1898). However, he is best known for his description, in 1899, of the arrhythmia which is now termed the "Wenckebach phenomenon." As a result of his studies on the arrhythmias with the polygraph, Wenckebach had great influence on electrocardiography. He was also one of the first to suggest that the various disorders of the heartbeat which were produced in experimental animals were of the same nature as those observed clinically in man.""Incomplete hear block was studied extensively in man by Wenckebach, Mackenzie and Ha, by means of the polygraph. Wenckebach first noted the phenomenon from a patient with incomplete heart block. Wenckebach recognized that the pulse varied in an manner that had been described by Luciani in 1872. Luciani showed that the isolated ventricle of a frog was able to beat when supplied with serum but that the contractions were irregular and occurred in distinct groups, with pauses of varying lenths between the groups. Wenckebach called the pauses seen in the clinical sphygmogram "Luciani periods. .." G.E. Burch & N.P. de Pasquale, A History of Electrocardiography, pp.83-84 154-155 Garrison & Morton No.2809.1

        Merton College Caricature Album

      Oxford, England, 1899-1904. Half Leather. Very Good. Madcap "salad days" from back when! 4to. 30 by 25.5 cm. Unpaginated, 20 pages with caricatures mounted onto card rectos. Additional blank card, and a number of drawings that are loose, some of which were probably always so. In total, 91 separate pieces of overwhelmingly, caricature, of varying size, and ranging from simple portraits, exaggerated in one way or another as called for by the medium, to multi-character cartoons, or depictions of a scene, with dialogue bubbles and captions. The caricatures center around, but are not confined to, the doings and personalities of Merton College, Oxford. A few of the portraits would appear to be of Theodore Roosevelt, for example. Many, but far from all, of the mounted caricature illustrations are signed or credited, although we think it is quite likely that pseudonyms were used, as was obviously the case with "the Freak". The album is quite unusual, then, in its creation, with multiple contributors, something common in a friendship or amicorum album, which this decidedly is not. We would surmise that the contributors were members of an informal club of artistic anarchists. The quality is not entirely even, as might be expected from such an effort, but overall, the caricatures are vivid and amusing, with quite a few displaying true artistic cleverness. Rebacked in matching calf. Wear to the corners and edges. Some scrappiness to interior. Paste marks where there once were a few mounted pieces.

        Manuscript book on heraldica in Dutch, meant as a handbook on heraldica. Containing 290 handcoloured coats-of-arms based on printed blank coats-of-arms.

      - Netherlands, late 17th century. 8o. Modern full vellum, in made to measure cassette. Good condition. Exlibris Daniel de Bruin. 19+ 290 pag. A couple pages professionally strengthened. This intriguing anonymous manuscript contains 290 prints of blank coats-of-arms, which are hand coloured and decorated with the appropriate heraldic figures. The families seem to be mainly of French origin. This manuscript was sold at auction in 1899 by Beijers from the collection of Royaards van den Ham, second part, nr. 3016 (then unbound but with register). What makes this manuscript exraordinary is the fact that at the time it was made (late 17th century), the only Dutch heraldic work was that by Thomas de Rouck, which was also based on the French heraldic ideas. It seems that this book originates from the same time and was never printed or maybe even not intended for printing. The drawings of the coats-of-arms are detailed and well executed. It starts with a 19 page description of the formal crowns and crests and is followed by 290 single page heraldic descriptions. The manuscript should be regarded as a handbook. H145

        Kunstformen der Natur

      Leipzig:: Bibliographisches Institut, [1899-1904]., 1899. Large 4to. 5 (of 10) fascicules, including parts I, II, III, IV, V. [2] ff., 100 pp. Title-pages and text within borders. 50 (of 100) lithographic plates (glassine tissues preceding the plates), mostly in colors. Original parts with original printed wrappers; some joints split, one mended with modern paper. VERY RARE IN ORIGINAL PARTS. WITH: AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR: "Mrs. J.O. Oertel, Newick, Sussex - Kind regards! Ernst Haeckel, Jena 7.6.1911." Haeckel both studied and taught (1862-1909) at the University of Jena. "He sold his "Villa Medusa" in Jena in 1918 to the Carl Zeiss foundation, and it presently contains a historic library." AS ISSUED IN THE ORIGINAL PARTS; PUBLISHER'S CUSTOM BOOK-FORM CASE - WITH AUTHOR'S SIGNED & INSCRIBED NOTE LAID-IN. The work of Ernst Haeckel, his milestone work, the "luxuriously illustrated volume depicting the shape and structures of living organisms" (Moore, p.90) Kunstformen der Natur, or Art Forms in Nature, had a considerable influence on the decorative design of its period, i.e., Art Nouveau or Jugendstil movement. The plates depict the fantastic forms and structures found in marine animal and plant life. According to Nissen, the artist was Adolf Giltsch, after Haeckel, and the lithographs by E. Giltsch. - Nissen. See: Gregory Moore, Nietzsche, Biology and Metaphor, Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2002. Michael Hann, Structure and Form in Design: Critical Ideas for Creative Practice, London; New York: Berg, (2014) - p. 123. Haeckel, notes German biologist and zoologist, considered a great morphologist, studied medicine and science under some of the greatest teachers of the era - Johannes Müller, Virchow and Kölliker - became professor of comparative anatomy and director of the Zoological Institute of the University of Jena. He later was appointed to the first chair of zoology there, Haeckel was the first German biologist to give a whole-hearted adherence to the doctrine of organic evolution and to treat it as the cardinal conception of modern biology, it was he who first brought Darwin's doctrine prominently before the German scientists - Encyclopaedia Britannica. "Haeckel's historical importance consists principally in his suggestions that stimulated further work. His spirited advocacy of Darwin's ideas - not all of which he agreed with - contributed to the breakthrough of evolutionary thinking in the construction of biological theories. Moreover, concepts that Haeckel was the first to formulate, such as ontogeny, phylogeny, ecology, and chorology, have been adopted." - DSB. Christoph Kockerbeck's work [1986] studies the lithographs from zoologist Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur and gives its importance as an aesthetic theory of turn of the century monists, giving the primacy of nature ahead of the beauty of art and justifying the art biologically. Kockerbeck examines this in the context of the history of science, philosophical and cultural environments of these aesthetics and contributions to the elucidation of the evolutionary nature of monism. Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur, "capped a career of visual innovation" (p. 53) and "celebrated the beauty and symmetry of organic structures, delighting families and serving as patterns for art nouveau design..." (p. 148). - Nick Hopwood, Haeckel's Embryos: Images, Evolution, and Fraud. University of Chicago Press, 2015. The plates, mostly of invertebrates (some others include vertebrates and plants), depict: Radiolaria, Foraminifera, Ciliata, diatoms, calcareous sponges, Siphonophora, star corals, starfishes, Protozoa, flagellates, brown seaweed, jellyfishes, sea-lilies, moss animals, sea-urchins, etc. "According to Haeckel scholar Olaf Breidbach, the work was "not just a book of illustrations but also the summation of his view of the world." The over-riding themes of the Kunstformen plates are symmetry and organization. The subjects were selected to embody organization, from the scale patterns of boxfishes to the spirals of ammonites to the perfect symmetries of jellies and microorganisms, while images composing each plate are arranged for maximum visual impact." - Wikip. & Olaf Breidbach, Visions of Nature, pp. 229-231.

        Merton College Caricature Album

      1899-1904, Oxford, England 1899 - Madcap "salad days" from back when! 4to. 30 by 25.5 cm. Unpaginated, 20 pages with caricatures mounted onto card rectos. Additional blank card, and a number of drawings that are loose, some of which were probably always so. In total, 91 separate pieces of overwhelmingly, caricature, of varying size, and ranging from simple portraits, exaggerated in one way or another as called for by the medium, to multi-character cartoons, or depictions of a scene, with dialogue bubbles and captions. The caricatures center around, but are not confined to, the doings and personalities of Merton College, Oxford. A few of the portraits would appear to be of Theodore Roosevelt, for example. Many, but far from all, of the mounted caricature illustrations are signed or credited, although we think it is quite likely that pseudonyms were used, as was obviously the case with "the Freak". The album is quite unusual, then, in its creation, with multiple contributors, something common in a friendship or amicorum album, which this decidedly is not. We would surmise that the contributors were members of an informal club of artistic anarchists. The quality is not entirely even, as might be expected from such an effort, but overall, the caricatures are vivid and amusing, with quite a few displaying true artistic cleverness. Rebacked in matching calf. Wear to the corners and edges. Some scrappiness to interior. Paste marks where there once were a few mounted pieces. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Bubbles. His Book

      Sydney: William Brooks, 1899. First edition of this rare and beautiful Australian children's book. Small quarto in publisher's blind blocked purple cloth, colour plates and black & white vignettes throughout; cloth mildly rubbed, inner hinges have split (not detached - binding remains firm and sound), some browning of the front free endpaper yet a very good and handsome copy nonetheless.

        LA DOMENICA DEL CORRIERE . rara collezione in sequenza senza lacune dal 1899 (primo anno) al 1942 - 44 volumi ben rilegati come da foto panoramica nel nostro sito, Condizioni veramente straordinarie con fogli puliti e senza pieghe e strappi, Milano, Corriere della Sera, 1899

      Siamo in presenza di una documentazione unica nel panorama editoriale e giornalistico italiano. La Domenica, emanazione settimanale del sempre potente e documentato CORRIERE DELLA SERA, ha attraversato molti anni della vita e della storia italiana (albori del '900, prima guerra mondiale, movimenti politici, i 20 anni di regime fascista e seconda guerra mondiale., ecc., ecc.) veniva letto ed apprezzato da una moltitudine di persone e fece grandissima presa specialmente sul "popolo" mentre in quegli anni la "borghesia" sfogliava "la Illustrazione Italiana" ed altri giornali patinati.- Il giornale prosegui' - stancamente - fino al 1989 ma il periodo veramente significativo ed apprezzato è compreso nella raccolta che qui presentiamo dove ci sono anche gli anni rarissimi della prima e della seconda guerra mondiale. Le copertine magistralmente illustrate da ACHILLE BELTRAME (1899-1944) sono state un PUNTO DI RIFERIMENTO STORICO PER ALCUNE GENERAZIONI DI ITALIANI. Il giornale entrò in quasi tutte le case ogni domenica con le sue immagini di attualità e di grande presa immediata, riassumendo i fatti più importanti ed anche di cronache eclatanti, e sopratutto TIMBRANDO i ricordi e la memoria di tantissimi italiani ormai non più giovani. La rara collezione, in sequenza e senza lacune è composta da volumi di dimensioni circa 30 x 40 e di pagine circa 8-16.per numero. La rilegatura è in piena tela rossa con titoli ai dorsi assolutamente eguali, il che permetterà una brillante ed orgogliosa esposizione in saloni qualilficati. Essendo l'uscita settimanale, ogni annata ha 52 giornali (pensate in tutto circa 2300 esemplari e quindi 37000 pagine ) Sono disponibili foto a richiesta per opportune prese d'atto La collezione è offerta a
