        Blood Tracks of the Bush.

      - London, Gay & Bird 1900. Octavo publisher's red cloth. Sixteen page publisher's list dated January 1900 at the end. Some light spotting at the beginning; a nice, bright copy. First edition. We begin, as we must, on an English country estate with an unscrupulous debt-ridden squire directing his equally unscrupulous son to take his young ward's inheritance, make his fortune in the colonies and save the family home. Scene change to Wilcannia and no-one behaves any better. It's a well filled novel, plenty of murder and robbery, false identity, a dash of lost race fantasy when the last survivor of the Leichhardt romp is discovered and points our hero west into the setting sun to rediscover, under the snow capped mountain, the mysterious chamber filled with gold, and - most notable - graphic accounts of the massacre of Aborigines foolish enough to cause trouble. Not much mercy here; I don't think it's giving too much away that the only protaganist left standing at the end of the book is the noble and loyal young ward and she's badly scarred. Trove locates only two copies of this first edition - the Bell colonial edition is a bit more plentiful - and OCLC and Copac adds few copies outside the four British deposit libraries.

        Ueber das Verhalten der Laevulose im Stoffwechsel. Diss.

      - Leipzig, Druck von Brunno Georgi, 1900, 8°, 44 pp., 1 p. Lebenslauf, OBrosch. Hans Sachs (1877-1945), "als Sohn jüdischer Eltern in Kattowitz geboren, Schüler und (1915-1920) wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter Paul Ehrlichs in Frankfurt, seit 1920 dem Institut für Immunitäts- und Serumforschung des Krebsinstituts vor. Beide Gebiete wurden bis in die dreißiger Jahre in Deutschland wesentlich durch ihn beeinflusst. Als grundlegend galten seine Arbeit zur immunbiologischen Pathophysiologie (1928) und seine umfassende Darstellung "Antigene und Antikörper" (1930). Zusammen mit Witebsky (seit 1925 in Heidelberg) arbeitete Sachs an Untersuchungen über die Bedeutung der Lipoide für die Krebsimmunität. Ernst Witebsky (1901-1969) begründete durch seine Arbeiten am Institut das Forschungsgebiet der immunologischen Organspezifität. Sachs festigte in dieser Zeit seinen immensen Ruf als international führender Immunologe. Als Jude allerdings geriet er 1933 rasch ins Visier der Nationalsozialisten, die ihn bereits im Frühjahr "beurlaubten". - Durch eine mutige Intervention des Dekans der Medizinischen Fakultät Siebeck und des Internisten v. Krehl gelang es zwar, die "Beurlaubung" zunächst wieder rückgängig zu machen. Endgültig entlassen wurde der "erste Serologe Deutschlands" (Siebeck) dann aber doch im Januar 1936. Unter dramatischen Bedingungen gelang die Emigration über die Schweiz zunächst nach England und schließlich nach Dublin, wo Sachs am 25. März 1945 starb. Auch Witebsky wurde vom Rassenwahn der NS-Machthaber (bereits 1933) in die Emigration über die Schweiz in die USA getrieben. Der jüngere Witebsky allerdings konnte seine glänzende Karriere als Serologe dort fortsetzen. - In wenigen Jahren hatten die Nationalsozialisten mit der Immunologie eines der in seiner Zeit vielleicht wichtigsten und zukunftsweisenden medizinischen Forschungsgebiete der Ruprecht-Karls-Universität zerschlagen. An die früheren Forschungserfolge konnte in Heidelberg erst Jahrzehnte später wieder angeknüpft werden." Stolze Anfänge, von den Nationalsozialisten aber schon 1933 zerschlagen, - Ein Beitrag von Prof. Dr. med. Wolfgang U. Eckart (Heidelberger Immunologie feiert 100jähriges Bestehen) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        On the Criterion that a Given System of Deviations from the Probable in the Case of a Correlated System of Variables is such that it Can Reasonably Be Supposed to have Arisen from Random Sampling

      Taylor & Francis, London 1900 - FIRST EDITION of one of the most important papers in the history of statistics, introducing the 'chi-squared' test of goodness of fit, "one of the most useful of all statistical tests" and "one of Pearson's greatest single contributions to statistical methodology" (DSB). "Specification or stochastic modeling of data is an important step in statistical analysis of data. Karl Pearson was the first to recognize this problem and introduce criterion, in a paper published in 1900, to examine whether the observed data support a given specification. He called it chi-squared goodness-of-fit test, which motivated research in testing of hypotheses and estimation of unknown parameters and led to the development of statistics as a separate discipline. In an article entitled "Trial by Number", [Ian] Hacking says that the goodness of fit chi-square test introduced by Karl Pearson (1900) 'ushered in a new kind of decision making' and gives it a place among the top 20 discoveries since 1900 considering all branches of science and technology" (C.R. Rao, "Karl Pearson Chi-Square Test: The Dawn of Statistical Inference"). In: Philosophical Magazine, Series 5, Vol 50, pp. 157-175. Complete volume (July-Dec 1900) offered. London: Taylor & Francis, 1900. Octavo, modern cloth. Provenance: with library stamp on volume title from the prestigious Gmelin Institute (after 1996, part of the Max Planck Institute). A fine copy.

        The Strength of Gideon and other Stories

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Co, 1900 362 pages with plates including frontispiece. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5") issued in brown cloth with prictorial front cover and spine, lettering in gilt. 1st edition. Dunbar was born in Dayton, Ohio to parents who had escaped from slavery; his father was a veteran of the American Civil War, having served in the 55th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment and the 5th Massachusetts Colored Cavalry Regiment. His parents instilled in him a love of learning and history. He was a student at an all-white high school, Dayton Central High School, and he participated actively as a student. During high school, he was both the editor of the school newspaper and class president, as well as the president of the school literary society. Dunbar had also started the first African-American newsletter in Dayton. He wrote his first poem at age 6 and gave his first public recital at age 9. Dunbar's first published work came in a newspaper put out by his high school friends Wilbur and Orville Wright, who owned a printing plant. The Wright Brothers later invested in the Dayton Tattler, a newspaper aimed at the black community, edited and published by Dunbar. His first collection of poetry, Oak and Ivy, was published in 1892 and attracted the attention of James Whitcomb Riley, the popular "Hoosier Poet". Both Riley and Dunbar wrote poems in both standard English and dialect. His second book, Majors and Minors (1895) brought him national fame and the patronage of William Dean Howells, the novelist and critic and editor of Harper's Weekly. After Howells' praise, his first two books were combined as Lyrics of Lowly Life and Dunbar started on a career of international literary fame. He moved to Washington, D.C., in the LeDroit Park neighborhood. While in Washington, he attended Howard University. His wife Alice Dunbar Nelson was a famous poet as well. A graduate of Dillard University in New Orleans, her most famous works include a short story entitled "Violets". She and her husband also wrote books of poetry as companion pieces. An account of their love, life and marriage was depicted in a play by Kathleen McGhee-Anderson titled Oak and Ivy. He kept a lifelong friendship with the Wrights, and was also associated with Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington. Brand Whitlock was also described as a close friend. He was honored with a ceremonial sword by President Theodore Roosevelt. He wrote a dozen books of poetry, four books of short stories, five novels, and a play. He also wrote lyrics for In Dahomey - the first musical written and performed entirely by African-Americans to appear on Broadway in 1903; the musical comedy played successfully toured England and America over a period of four years - one of the more successful theatrical productions of its time. His essays and poems were published widely in the leading journals of the day. His work appeared in Harper's Weekly, the Saturday Evening Post, the Denver Post, Current Literature and a number of other publications. During his life, considerable emphasis was laid on the fact that Dunbar was of pure black descent, with no white ancestors ever. Dunbar's work is known for its colorful language and use of dialect, and a conversational tone, with a brilliant rhetorical structure. Dunbar traveled to England in 1897 to recite his works on the London literary circuit. He met the brilliant young black composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor who some of his poems to music and who was influenced by Dunbar to use African and American Negro songs and tunes in future compositions. After his return, Dunbar took a job at the Library of Congress in Washington. In 1900, Dunbar was diagnosed with tuberculosis, and moved to Colorado with his wife on the advice of his doctors. Dunbar died at age thirty-three on February 9, 1906 from tuberculosis, and was interred in the Woodland Cemetery, Dayton, Ohio. Condition: Corners bumped and gently rubbed, some rubbing to spine points, book plate on front paste down, light ring stain to back cover else about very good.. First Edition. Original Cloth.
