        The Lord of the Sea

      London: Grant Richards,, 1901. Octavo. Original tan cloth, titles to spine in black, decoration and titles to front board in red and black, top edge gilt. Small reference number to rear free endpaper in red pencil. Spine very faintly toned, fore edge of text and endpapers block lightly foxed. An excellent copy with contents bright and fresh. First edition, first impression, of a key Shiel mystery in which the world's seaways are ruled by an English farmer. This is the preferred issue with the initial blank extant. The Lord of the Sea was an immediate literary sensation, thanks to its "grandiose sweep of imagination, the vigour and inventiveness of [its] prose, and Shiel's surreal images of obsession, hysteria, and horror" (ODNB). An exceptional copy.

He was ordained in 1876 in Toronto. All Saint's turned against him in 1898 after 21 years of service, and greatly reduced his stipend from $900 per annum to $1; he sued and won. ; Mair, the member of the Canada First Movement, opposed the Provincial Government of Louis Riel's Red River Rebellion of 1869-70, and the North-West Rebellion of 1885, he was taken prisoner, escaped, and subsequently raised the force that eventually took Riel down ; "The first edition of 'Tecumseh', published in Toronto in 1886, had a quick sale, but, not being stereotyped, ran out of print, and a reissue is now called for. The author has often been asked to republish his youthful venture, entitled 'Dreamland and other poems', only a limited number of copies of which saw the light. Whilst the edition was passing through the binder's hands in Ottawa, and the author himself in the then wilderness of Prince Rupert's Land, the greater part of it was burnt in the Desbrats fire of 1869. In the following pages (Part II) the major portion of that unfortunate volume is included, with such revision as seemed desirable." --preface ; an important work of Canadian literature ; only 5 copies held: at Princeton, University of British Columbia, Vancouver Public, University of Western Ontario and the University of New Brunswick St. John ; rare ; near FINE.

        Archive of Reminiscences of the Civil War in the West and later life in Oregon and Washington State (21 Letters and 2 Manuscripts)

      Reminiscences of Greene as recorded in a group of 21 letters, dated 1901 and between 1916-1917 to an old friend, Judge Leander Stillwell of Erie, Kansas; accompanied by two manuscripts by Greene and his calling card as a political candidate in Portland, Oregon, and other places. Various sizes. The 21 letters comprise 75 pages, both typed and holograph, approximately 15,000 words. The two manuscripts, one a typescript, the other in holograph, are 17 pages each comprising approximately 4000 words; the calling card, which measures 2.5" x 4", presents Greene as a candidate for the 1916 Republican nomination for a state assembly seat in Stevenson, Washington - he lost by 24 votes.A rich collection of letters and manuscripts, offering detailed accounts of personal experience in the Civil War in the West, displaying a literary bent. Some pages frayed around the edges, other modest wear and soiling, but overall very good or better. Albert R. Greene (1842-1918) was a soldier with the 9th Kansas Cavalry during the Civil War, afterwards he worked as journalist, lecturer, Kansas State Senator, Inspector with the Department of the Interior's General Land Office, and Chief of the Division of Forestry in Washington, D.C. In later life he moved west, living in Stevenson, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, from where most of these letters were written.Several of the letters recount detailed specifics from his Civil War service, including details of battles at Pittsburg Landing (Shiloh) in Tennessee,and of battles at Prairie Grove, Little Rock, and at DuVall's Bluff in Arkansas, including details from notes that he kept during the war. One letter recounts his witnessing of the execution of a deserter from the 22nd Ohio at DuVall's Bluff; he describes crossing a newly built pontoon bridge south of town, and of skirmishing all day on September 8, 1864; capturing rebel prisoners, and being fired upon from the canebrakes as his company floated down river. At Prairie Grove, he reports that the Union forces under Blunt lit hundreds of campfires in the evening to make the Rebels think many reinforcements had arrived, but then withdrew from the hills just as the Confederates under Hinman were muffling their wagon wheels with blankets while withdrawing the other way.Green returned to Pittsburg Landing in later years and spoke with a descendant of the family in whose house General Grant was quartered during the battle. She was a young girl at the time and recounted how calmly Grant ate his breakfast to the sound of cannon fire before riding off to join his troops. In another letter, Green asks for information on the killing of Confederate recruiting officers by a band of Osage Indians south of Cherryvale, Kansas.The correspondence is full of literary discussions mentioning Greene's attempts to get his stories and historical essays published, his testimony in land fraud cases, a story he was writing regarding the opening of Kiowa-Comanche lands to settlement in 1901, and reports on lumber production in the Western states spurred by the requirements of the Allies in World War I. He also describes the mustering of some 60,000 troops under the command of Maj. General Henry Augustus Greene in 1917 and comments on how much better fed and provisioned the troops were then than during his Civil War days, remembering the test for beef in the summer of 1864: "throw it against the side of an army wagon; if it stuck it was for us; if it rolled off on the ground, it was for the officers!"The two manuscripts offer samples of Greene's skills: one is a short history of the rise and fall of Lecompton, the territorial capital of Kansas in the pre-Civil War era and a victim of the conflicts between free-staters and pro-slavery advocates in "Bleeding Kansas"; the other is a memoir of a veteran of the Napoleonic Wars who worked on his father's farm in Illinois. [See Dornbusch Kansas 34 ("Campaigning in the Army of the Frontier"), 35 ("On the battle of Wilson Creek"), and 36 ("What I saw of the Quantrill raid") for three published works on the Civil War written by Greene].The recipient of the material, Judge Stillwell (1843-1934), was also a veteran of the Civil War, fighting in an Illinois regiment and recording his experiences in his memoir, The Story of a Common Soldier of Army Life in the Civil War, 1861-1865 (Erie, Kansas, 1920). Stillwell moved to Kansas following the war and had an active legal practice there until retirement. .

        Autograph Letter, Signed, to Frederic Schiller Lee, January 20, 1901,

      1901 - "My dear Lee, I trust you bear in memory that you kindly agreed to be the American Secty for the International Congress of Physiologists 1901. I do not suppose that it will involve you in very arduous labours, but Prof. Mosso of Turin has probably already sent to you some papers to distribute. Many of us here would much prefer to have the Congress begin on Tuesday the 17th September instead of Monday 16th. One reason of our wish lies in the date of opening of the Brit. Assoc. meeting at Glasgow being Sept. 11th; and the extra day would be of convenience in allowing physiologists to get from one meeting to the other. I think also that for any on your side the water who might travel via Liverpool the Tuesday allows a better journey to Turin than does the Monday-arrival here being Saturday. Let me wish you a very happy New Year & Century! My wife joins me in best regards. I am yours most truly Ch. S. Sherrington." Charles S. Sherrington shared the Nobel prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1932 with with Edgar Adrian “for their discoveries regarding the functions of neurons.” [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Bedford - Guido Holzknecht (1872-1931), Pionier der Radiolgoie, studierte in Straßburg, Königsberg und Wien.

        Functionelle Nierendiagnostik, mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der Nierenchirurgie. Klinisch-Experimentelle Untersuchungen.

      . Berlin & Wien, Urban & schwarzenberg, 1901, 8°, (4), 155, (1) pp., 2Holuschnitte, orig. Leinenband; St.a.Tit.. Erste Ausgabe! - "Mit Hilfe seines Instrumentenbauers Georg Hirschmann gelang es dem damals 35-jähriger Leopold Casper (1859-1959) durch einen gleitenden Schieber dem Katheter eine Krümmung zu geben, mit deren Hilfe das Einführen in den Harnleiter nun einfach und sicher wurde. - Leopold Casper ging nach dem Studium in Berlin für neun Monate nach London und Wien, um dort speziell urologische und chirurgische Vorlesungen zu hören.58 Nach seiner Rückkehr ließ er sich im Jahr 1885 in seiner Heimatstadt als Arzt nieder.59 Im Jahre 1900 eröffnete er zunächst eine Privatklinik und wurde im Jahre 1908 Belegarzt im Franziskus-Krankenhaus. Viele Ärzte wurden an seiner Klinik ausgebildet, auch Eugen Rehfisch (1862-1937), dessen Rolle bei der Entwicklung der Urodynamik in den letzten Jahren beleuchtet wurde. Der amerikanische Urologe Hugh H. Young kam für zwei Monate nach Berlin, um bei Casper das Zystoskopieren zu erlernen. Um den Harnleiterkatheterismus entbrannte am Ende des 19. Jahrhundert ein Prioritätenstreit zwischen Casper und Nitze, der in der medizinischen Literatur über längere Zeit präsent war. Gemeinsam mit dem Internisten Paul Friedrich Richter (1868-1935) verfasste er die "Funktionelle Nierendiagnostik". - *) Keller1954, p.41 Dazu folgende Bemerkung von Eugen Joseph: "erst durch die Konstruktion, welche Casper dem Instrument gab, indem er dem Ureterkatheter eine Biegung verschaffte, durch die er in den Harnleiter eindrang, wurde die Methodik des Ureterkatheterismus geschaffen." Joseph 1929

        An English miscellany presented to Dr. Furnivall in honour of his seventy- fifth birthday.

      Clarendon Press, Oxford 1901 - "First edition, 8vo, pp. viii, [2], 500; gravure frontispiece portrait and 10 plates (1 folding and 6 double-p.); original red cloth, spine quite faded, else good and sound. Laid in is a 2-p. A.L.s. from Furnivall (previous folds, some foxing) written on the back of a corrected proof sheet (probably by Furnivall and probably from the Early English Text Society), to "Miss Ward," and dated "3.2.1900 (Brit. Mus)": "Last Sunday I asked some of you girls whether 25 of your Singing Club and others wd. come to our Girls' Sculling Club on Saty, 13 Oct. from 2.30 to 3 & then to scull up to Kew, scull in the Gardens, scull down to the Club, and then to tea & some singing & a little Dancing The Club is on the bank of the river, next to Jack Biffin's boathouse. Also laid in is a 4- p. offprint (also with previous folds and a bit foxed) from the Westminster Gazette entitled The Furnivall Sculling Club Unwritten Chapters from "Nowhere," by Mrs. Frances Campbell who describes a day spent with Furnivall and his crew, and concludes, "There was dancing after the music and reading, and then came the saying of good-night, and I, among others, turned homewards. The river came under Hammersmith Bridge like a torrent of black glass. The only substantial thing in the dusk was the Doctor walking beside me, and the tall young Stroke. It is a very beautiful chapter, that is lived in Nowhere, by the great Doctor Furnivall, with his working girls and men." Also laid in: Dr. Furnivall Memorial, 4to, 3pp. on integral leaves, previous folds, regarding the raising of money "to commemorate the late Dr. Furnivall's great services to literature and to social progress." On the Committee for the Memorial were Thomas Hardy, G. Bernard Shaw, and Anthony Hope Hopkins, who was Treasurer. Furnivall was the founder and "moving spirit" behind The Early English Text Society. The Ballad Society, the Chaucer, the Wyclif, the Shakespeare, the Shelley and the Browning Societies were "but some of his tireless activities." He also established a rowing society and "put thousands on the river who were never there before, and among these as the crowning touch of his energy and good intent, an eight sculled by shop girls." This lot is also accompanied by William Benzie's biography of Furnivall: Dr. F. J. Furnivall, A Victorian Scholar Adventurer, Norman, OK, 1983." [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Spectator

      J. B. Millet Company, London 1901 - Eight volumes, complete. Includes Appendices (3), Corrigenda, and General Index to the volumes Octavo. bound in three-quarter green morocco over marbled boards, decorated with delicate flowers on spines a and covers, lettered in gilt, spines with raised bands and extra gilt, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. With forty original portraits and eight sketches by Railton; some plates in colour. No. 88 of 200 numbered sets. The Spectator was a literary magazine of some note in 16th century London and England, founded by Sir Richard Steele and Joseph Addison. It succeeded "The Tatler" which Steele had begun in 1709. "The Spectator" set out to inform its readers as well as impart and instruct in morality and aesthetics. It's motto was "Enliven With with Morality and to temper Wit with Morality". It used a unique method of presenting the stories, through a "Spectator Club" with imaginary members. Those members, who included representatives of commerce, the army, the town extolled the author's own ideas about society.Addison and Steele met at Charterhouse [school] and formed a lifelong friendship. Steele was the son of a solicitor in Dublin, born in March 1672 and Addison's father was the Dean of Lichfield, born almost two months earlier. Steele's father died when he was about five and through his guardian, Henry Gascoigne, he was sent to Charterhouse. Steele was welcomed in Addison's home and felt like one of the family. Both went to Oxford although Addison was the only one who took a degree; they went their different ways for several years and then found themselves both in London in 1704.Despite a modest daily circulation of approximately 3,000 copies, The Spectator was widely read; Joseph Addison estimated that each number was read by 60,000 Londoners, about a tenth of the capital's population at the time. Contemporary historians and literary scholars, meanwhile, do not consider this to be an unreasonable claim; most readers were not themselves subscribers but patrons of one of the subscribing coffeehouses. These readers came from many stations in society, but the paper catered principally to the interests of England's emerging middle classÑmerchants and traders large and small. -from WikipediaVolume I of the set begins with "The Spectator. No. 1, Thursday, March 1, 1711" and ends with "No. 635, Monday, Dec. 20, 1714" in volume VIII. Spines faded to brown, slight rubbing to extremities, else fine [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
