        Topographie des weiblichen Ureters mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der pathologischen Zustände und der gynäkologischen Operationen.

      - Wien und Leipzig, Wilhelm Braumüller, Leipzig 1901, Folio, 78 pp., mit 32 farblith. Tafeln, Halblederband mit orig. geprägten Deckelbezügen; feines Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe - Entklammert und neu aufgebuden; feines Exemplar ! - "1901 erschien bei Wilhelm Braumüller in Wien der Atlas über die "Topographie des weiblichen Ureters mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der pathologischen Zustände und der gynäkologischen Operationen", von Tandler und Josef Halban (1870-1937), der 1903 zum Dozent für Gynäkologie ernannt wurde. Auf 32 lithographischen Tafeln mit kurzem Text werden alle topographischen Beziehungen dargestellt, die für den gynäkologischen Operateur wichtig sind. Verschiedene Operationsmethoden, vor allem die vaginalen sind festgehalten; pathologische Zustände der weiblichen Beckenorgane wurden durch Bilder dem Verständnis näher gebracht. Die Präparate, in natürlicher Größe abgebildet, sind teilweise durch IVoige Chromsäure fixiert worden, in anderen Fällen durch ein Gemisch von Formol, Alkohol und Glycerin. Die Bedeutung des Werkes liegt darin - und hier findet sich eine Ansicht Tandlers nicht nur vorgebildet, sondern schon ausgeprägt -, daß die Anatomie die Gynäkologie befruchten kann." - Der Wunsch nach naturgetreuen Abbildungen entspricht den praktischen Bedürfnissen des gynäkologischen Operateurs, heißt es im Vorwort. Die normale Anatomie wurde nicht mit einbezogen, da Zuckerkandl gerade ein einschlägiges Werk vorbereitete. Nur die pathologischen Zustände und operativen Eingriffe wurden dargestellt. Die Bilder zeigen den Einfluß der pathologischen Zustände auf die Topographie des Ureters. Die Topik des Ureters wird in den einzelnen Phasen der wichtigsten Operationen festgehalten. Die Bilder - der Künstler war B. Keilitz - wurden nach dem frischen Objekt in natürlicher Größe gezeichnet, mit möglichster Beibehaltung der topographischen Verhältnisse. - Die Rezensionen überboten sich: "Nach wissenschaftlichem Inhalte und Ausstattung einfach ein Prachtwerk ersten Ranges", schrieb Gustav Klein (1862-1920, Leiter der Universitätsbibliothek München) in der "Münchner Medizinischen Wochenschrift" (92), der Operateur findet sofort alles in klarster Weise im "Tandler und Halban". Das Buch wurde zum Begriff. Man sollte es "neben dem Operationszimmer" aufbewahren, um es bei schwierigen Fällen stets zur Hand zu haben. Der Rezensent schloß sich den Worten Zuckerkandis an, daß bald ähnliche Werke für andere Organe geschrieben werden mögen. .

An excellent view into what was available at the time for those in the hardware business. A short history of the various incarnations of the company follows. "Rose, Kimball & Baxter, Inc.- On June 25, 1864 Miles Ayrault and Stephen Rose founded Ayrault & Rose at 14 Lake Street in Elmira, NY. There they sold hardware and mill supplies. In 1867, they changed the name to Ayrault, Rose & Co. During the 1860's the company struggled through recession and a series of fires, but still expanded the business into the wholesale hardware trade in addition [to] retail. In 1872, Ayrault and Rose were joined by Irvin D. Booth and and Dounce to form the Booth, Dounce, Rose & Co.. By 1875, Booth had left the partnership while Fred Barker joined, leaving the company as Barker, Dounce, Rose & Co. In 1888, the company became Barker, Rose & Gray and, in 1898, Arthur Clinton replaced Gray making it the Barker, Rose & Clinton Co. In 1928 Howard Kimball joined the partnership and the company became Barker, Rose & Kimball, Inc. In 1952, the name changed again to Rose, Kimball & Baxter, Inc."

        Contributions to the Comparative Anatomy of the Mammalian Eye

      1901. JOHNSON, George Lindsay. Contributions to the Comparative Anatomy of the Mammalian Eye, Chiefly Based on Ophthalmoscopic Examination. Tipped in index slip, [2], 82 pp. Illustrated with 30 full-page plates, containing 50 chromolithographic images of the retinal pigments of the eye, 4 of the plates in black and white. Large 4to., 295 x 220 mm, bound in contemporary English full black morocco, gilt-ruled and lettered covers and spine, light blue moiré patterned silk endpapers and fly-leaves, a.e.g.. London: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1901. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, Presentation Copy. A fascinating volume, prized both for the opthalmological discoveries recorded by Johnson in the 50 tipped-in brightly coloured lithographs and as a captivating illustrated book with technical plates that are akin to modern art. The exceptional coloured lithographs record retinal pigments of the interior surface of the eye, opposite the lens, and includes the retina, optic disc, macula and fovea, and posterior pole. These colours vary between and within species. The images include retinal pigments for a Nubian youth, a dark-haired European, a chimpanzee, a black-headed spider monkey, an Australian fruit-bat, a hedgehog, a seal, a striped hyaena, a Canadian skunk, a black bear, a Bactrian camel, a wild boar, an Indian rhinoceros, an African elephant, a red & white flying squirrel, a chinchilla, a Canadian beaver, a Brazilian porcupine, a hairy armadillo, a wombat, a Rufous rat kangaroo, a Tasmanian devil, etc. Johnson's original drawings for these chromolithographs have been preserved at the Royal Society in London. George Lindsay Johnson (1853-1943) "born in Manchester, England. He studied at Göttingen, Caius College, Cambridge and St. Bartholomew's Hospital. His ophthalmic career began as Registrar at the Royal Westminster Ophthalmic Hospital. He later worked at the Royal Eye Hospital with Brudenell Carter. Much of his spare time was spent at the zoo, where he studied the comparative anatomy of the eye. Papers on the mammalian eye appeared in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, London 1901. Johnson left England for South Africa in 1911 and practiced for a time in Johannesburg." (Albert p. 173). Later in life he devoted much of his time to devising optical instruments and photographic experiments. Johnson's ophthalmological career extended to colour photography where it is recorded that he coined the term "depth of field and "depth of focus"in the modern sense as the allowable distance error in the focal plane "possibly for the first time." See his book: Photographic Optics and Colour Photography, including the camera, kinematograph, optical lantern, and the theory and practice of image formation. London: Ward & Co., 1909). Insignificant rubbing to edges, a few short tears to margins, else a very fine copy. No copies listed at auction on ABPC. PROVENANCE: Edmund Landolt, with presentation inscription to him from the author. "To My Master/ Ed Landolt MD/ This little work is affectionately inscribed/ By his devoted and affectionate pupil & admirer/ the author/ Geo. Lindsey Johnson/ Sept. 20, 1901." Landolt (1846-1926) was a Swiss ophthalmologist who published widely and made a number of key discoveries in the field of ophthalmology; Bibliothèque du Docteur Jacques Mawas, with his blind stamp on fly-leaf and his signature in blue ink on title-page. Mawas was also a well-known French opthalmic pathologist of Egyptian heritage who lived in Paris where he worked at the Institute Pasteur and later became director of the Rothschild Foundation. Mawas published more than 250 studies and papers. Albert, Source Book of Ophthalmology 173. DSB, XII, 257-258.

        Autograph letter signed ("Theodore Roosevelt") as Vice President, to Jacob A. Riis, 11 June 1901

      1901 - Autograph letter signed ("Theodore Roosevelt") as Vice President, to Jacob A. Riis, Sagamore Hill, Oyster Bay, 11 June 1901. 2 pages, together 5 3/4 x 7 7/8 in. (148 x 200mm), Sagamore Hill stationery, in ink, with postscript portrait pasted on (letterpress halftone after an 1898 Pach Brothers portrait). "Dear Jake, Three cheers for little Virginia; and love and congratulations to her mother and grandmother, and to the father too; as for her grandfather, he knows that no one is more sincerely delighted than his attached friend." A most enthusiastic and literally cheerful letter to his dear friend on the occasion of the birth of Riis' first grandchild. While outside of my area of specialty, it is apparent that autograph letters by Theodore Roosevelt to associates of significance - in this case to "one of [his] truest and closest friends" are becoming quite scarce. Riis' "Theodore Roosevelt: The Citizen" of 1904 was among the very first biographies of the beloved President. T.R.'s reciprocated strong feelings for Riis were put to print in The Outlook (June 6, 1914) where he wrote: "I have ever prized the fact that once, in speaking of me, he said, 'since I met him he has been my brother'. I have not only admired and respected him beyond measure, but I have loved him dearly. and I mourn him as if he were one of my own family." This letter, entirely in holograph, is indeed a joyful object to behold. Additional contemporary annotation in ink verso likely by Mrs. Jacob A. Riis documenting the occasion of the letter’s receipt. Condition report request and inquiries welcomed. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Stances et Poemes (Paris: Achille Faure, 1865) Inscribed on verso of title page " Au cher poete François Coppée /….tres amicable/Sully Prudhomme" François Coppée was a French poet and dramatist. He won fame with the one-act comedy Le Passant (1869, tr. 1881), in which Sarah Bernhardt made her first successful appearance. His early verse, as in Le Reliquaire (1866), linked him with the Parnassians; his later work, as in Les Humbles (1872), is sentimental and tells of the sorrows of the poor. La Bonne Souffrance (1898), a religious novel, was written after his return to Catholicism. 2a) Sully Prudhomme. Autograph letter signed. To Mademoiselle Marie Champion. One page 8vo. Dated Aulnay, 29 8th 1901 sending a poem and recalling visits in Aulnay. 2b) Sully Prudhomme. Handwritten poem :pour Mademoiselle Marie Champion / a Aulnay/ le 29 Octobre 1901. A one page poem, Le Vase Brise (The Broken Vase) in Prudhomme's hand. 2c) Sully Prudhomme. Envelope in his hand to Mademoiselle Marie Championd) (Sully) Prudhomme. His calling card with and written notations.René François Armand (Sully) Prudhomme was a French poet and essayist, and was the first ever winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, in 1901. His first collection, Stances et Poèmes ("Stanzas and Poems", 1865), was praised by Sainte-Beuve. It included his most famous poem, Le vase brisé. He published more poetry before the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War. This war, which he discussed in Impressions de la guerre (1872) and La France (1874), permanently damaged his health. During his career, Prudhomme gradually shifted from the sentimental style of his first books towards a more personal style which unified the formality of the Parnassian school with his interest in philosophical and scientific subjects. The inspiration was clearly Lucretius's De rerum natura, for the first book of which he made a verse translation. His philosophy was expressed in La Justice (1878) and Le Bonheur (1888). The extreme economy of means employed in these poems has, however, usually been judged as compromising their poetical quality without advancing their claims as works of philosophy. He was elected to the Académie française in 1881. Another distinction, Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur, was to follow in 1895.After, Le Bonheur, Prudhomme turned from poetry to write essays on aesthetics and philosophy. He published two important essays: L'Expression dans les beaux-arts (1884) and Réflexions sur l'art des vers (1892), a series of articles on Blaise Pascal in La Revue des Deux Mondes (1890), and an article on free will (La Psychologie du Libre-Arbitre, 1906) in the Revue de métaphysique et de morale. quoted from Wikipedia.

Auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz verso zwei handschriftliche Hinweise mit Blei- stift auf Fundstellen auf den entsprechenden Seiten: "104 x" und "28 x", dort jeweils ebenfalls mit einem Bleistift-Kreuzchen markiert, Abbildung 12, die einen mit einer Swastika verzierten Speer zeigt, ein in vielen alten Kulturen vorkommendes Symbol, auf Seite 104 ein Hinweis auf einen Dr. Hermann Strebel aus Hamburg angekreuzt, für uns mangels zum Vergleich vorliegen- der Handschriften nicht festzustellen, ob es sich bei diesen Einträgen um Lesespuren Warburgs, Danzels oder anderer handelt. Mit Buchbinderklebemarke auf dem hinteren Innendeckel der "- Buchbinderei von - Johs. Larink, G. Jebsen Nachf. - Hamburg. -", die darauf hinweist, daß War- burg die ursprüngliche Broschur in Hamburg für seine Bibliothek binden ließ. Zum Kontext der Widmung, bzw. der genannten Personen: Abraham ("Aby") Moritz Warburg (1866 - 1929) war ein deutscher Kunsthistoriker, Privatgelehrter, Professor und Begründer der Kulturwissenschaft- lichen Bibliothek Warburg. Warburg erkundigt sich in einem längeren Schreiben an Franz Boas am 13.12.1924 nach dem Verbleib von Zelia Nuttall, die er seit seiner Amerika-Reise 1896 kenne und zuletzt vor etwa 20 Jahren in Florenz getroffen habe. Boas antwortet ihm am 14.01. 1925 u.a., daß die 1857 geborene Anthropologin in Mexiko lebe und teilt die Adresse mit, er selbst habe sie schon seit Jahren nicht mehr getroffen. Übrigens korrespondierte auch Danzel mit Boas, Ernst Cassirer weist dann Warburg auf die Arbeiten Danzels hin, dem er in der Folge, 1923 hielt er eine Vorlesung über das Schlangen-Ritual in Mexiko, dann das Buch aus seiner Sammlung schenkt. Der hier genannte Dr. Danzel ist Dr. Theodor Wilhelm Danzel, der Großneffe des gleichnamigen Hamburger Literaturhistorikers, der von 1818 bis 1850 lebte. "Theodor Wilh. (1886-1954), Ethnologe u. Völkerpsychologe, Kustos u. Abteilungsleiter am Mus. für Völkerkunde, ao. Prof. an der Univ. in Hamburg (W u. a. Der magische Mensch, Vom Wesen der primitiven Kultur, 1928)." ex: http://www.deutsche-biographie.de/sfz9315.html "* 17.2.1886 in Hamburg. Danzel studied Ethnology and Anthropology in Göttingen (with Eduard Seler), Leipzig an Paris. 1912 PhD in Leipzig Ethnology. From 1922 onwards, Danzel worked in the Hamburgische Museum für Völkerkunde, (since 1924 as permanently employed scientific aide) From 1931 to 1933, Danzel travelled to China (Nanjing, Hangzhou, Beijing; in Nanjing he organized an ethnographic Museum), Japan and the Philippines. In Nov 1933 Danzel had to retire due to his jewish descent. In Jan 1934 his retirement was anulled due to Georg Thilenius' intervention, so that he could work again in the Museum - but he lost his title as professor and the right to teach. Franz Boas helped him to teach at Columbia University/New York . In 1945 Danzel regained his title as professor as well as his right to teach in Hamburg. Ulla Johansen was amongst his students. Danzel died on 17. Nov 1954 in Ham- burg. (text by Dieter Haller, based on BAA)" ex: http://www.germananthropology.com/short-portrait/theodor-wilhelm-danzel/209 "Zelia Maria Magdalena Nuttall (* 6. September 1857 in San Francisco; 12. April 1933 in Coyoacan, Mexiko) war eine US-amerikanische Archäologin und Anthropologin und als solche Spezialistin für präkolumbische mesoamerikanische Manuskripte und vor-aztekische Kulturen in Mexiko." "Zelia Nuttall (1857 - 1933) was born in San Francisco and specialized in Pre-Columbian MesoAmerian manuscripts. 'Fundamental Principles' was her largest publication and dealt with the Incas, Aztecs, Mayans, Zuni along with Greece, Egypt, and Rome. For 47 years she was an Honorary Assistant in Mexican Archeology at the Peabody Museum." * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich. Versand mit Deutsche Post oder DHL. *

Sully's first edition of his first book.plus a group of 4 ephemera items including signed letter and hand written poem: 1) (Sully) Prudhomme. Stances et Poemes (Paris: Achille Faure, 1865) Inscribed on verso of title page " Au cher poete François Coppée /….tres amicable/Sully Prudhomme" François Coppée was a French poet and dramatist. He won fame with the one-act comedy Le Passant (1869, tr. 1881), in which Sarah Bernhardt made her first successful appearance. His early verse, as in Le Reliquaire (1866), linked him with the Parnassians; his later work, as in Les Humbles (1872), is sentimental and tells of the sorrows of the poor. La Bonne Souffrance (1898), a religious novel, was written after his return to Catholicism. 2a) Sully Prudhomme. Autograph letter signed. To Mademoiselle Marie Champion. One page 8vo. Dated Aulnay, 29 8th 1901 sending a poem and recalling visits in Aulnay. 2b) Sully Prudhomme. Handwritten poem :pour Mademoiselle Marie Champion / a Aulnay/ le 29 Octobre 1901. A one page poem, Le Vase Brise (The Broken Vase) in Prudhomme's hand. 2c) Sully Prudhomme. Envelope in his hand to Mademoiselle Marie Championd) (Sully) Prudhomme. His calling card with and written notations.René François Armand (Sully) Prudhomme was a French poet and essayist, and was the first ever winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, in 1901. His first collection, Stances et Poèmes ("Stanzas and Poems", 1865), was praised by Sainte-Beuve. It included his most famous poem, Le vase brisé. He published more poetry before the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War. This war, which he discussed in Impressions de la guerre (1872) and La France (1874), permanently damaged his health. During his career, Prudhomme gradually shifted from the sentimental style of his first books towards a more personal style which unified the formality of the Parnassian school with his interest in philosophical and scientific subjects. The inspiration was clearly Lucretius's De rerum natura, for the first book of which he made a verse translation. His philosophy was expressed in La Justice (1878) and Le Bonheur (1888). The extreme economy of means employed in these poems has, however, usually been judged as compromising their poetical quality without advancing their claims as works of philosophy. He was elected to the Académie française in 1881. Another distinction, Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur, was to follow in 1895.After, Le Bonheur, Prudhomme turned from poetry to write essays on aesthetics and philosophy. He published two important essays: L'Expression dans les beaux-arts (1884) and Réflexions sur l'art des vers (1892), a series of articles on Blaise Pascal in La Revue des Deux Mondes (1890), and an article on free will (La Psychologie du Libre-Arbitre, 1906) in the Revue de métaphysique et de morale. quoted from Wikipedia.

Bishopsgate Institute was built using funds from charitable endowments made to the parish of St Botolph's, Bishopsgate. These had been collected by the parish for over a period of 500 years, but a scheme agreed by the Charity Commissioners in 1891, enabled these to be drawn together into one endowment. Reverend William Rogers, Rector of St Botolph's and a notable educational reformer and supporter of free libraries was instrumental in setting up the Institute and ensuring that the original charitable aims were met. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm, however one of the inner front hinges has gone. There is some rubbing to the extremities and fading to the spines.

Complete serialization within magazine issues #128 through #136 [but with three additional non-HOUND-serialization issues, #127 and #137 and #138, also being present]. [Please note that listings often cite August 1901 through April 1902 as the HOUND serialization issues, but the title page dates on the issues present in this set are clearly September 1901---which has the opening chapters---and May 1902---which has the concluding chapters. I have been advised that the explanation is that when published in the UK version of the magazine, the issue dates were indeed August through April, but in the US version of the magazine, the issue dates were a month later resulting in a September through May run for HOUND]. The issues are complete [with the other stories, illustrations, etc], save that the original paper covers of the individual issues are mssing]. Privately bound in two true half-leather [spine and corners] hardcover volumes. [This is not the publisher's pictorial blue cloth binding]. Badly in need of rebinding [because the leather has very badly deteriorated, with the spine area broken] but the contents are very nice [as the original paper was of good quality, it is still nearly white, without foxing, etc].

        The Frog Princess].

      Eksped. Zagotov. gos. bumag St. Petersburg 1901 - Quarto (32.5 x 25.5 cm). 9 pp., chromolithographs throughout, some of these full-page. Original chromolithographed wrappers, protected by cardboard wrappers. An exceptionally fine example of this beautiful children book, finely illustrated in colour. Rarely found in such a nice, unrestored condition. Over a four-year period Bilibin illustrated six tales using as backgrounds the typical Russian countryside and buildings: dark and luscious forests and meadows, blue ribbons of rivers, colourful medieval building, ancient monasteries and wood huts. He strove to create an artistic whole for the series by careful layout and design. He placed the illustrations within intricate frames of his own design, employing a variety of decorative motifs that imitate wood carvings and poker-work; and he selected and drew the ornamental lettering used on the cover and at the beginning of each tale. The books were released as thin, large-format publications in stiff wrappers and illustrated with colourful high quality chromolithographs. Bilibin's style has been frequently imitated and his approach to book design, where everything is subordinated to a single artistic concept, was very influential in the history of Russian book design (Golynets, pp. 6-7; 13-15).

        The International Socialist Review: A Monthly Journal of International Socialist Thought : Volumes I - IX [ Complete Run from July, 1900 - June, 1909 ]

      Charles H. Kerr Co., Chicago 1901 - A very good set of publisher-bound complete run of Volumes I through IX (i.e., July, 1900 through June, 1909), lacking jackets, no doubt as issued. Each volume bound separately, and each includes th full run of issues in that volume, beginning in July of one year, and ending with the June issue of the following year. Thus, volume I runs from July, 1900 through June, 1901. The texts of all nine volumes are wholly unmarked, pristine, with no ownership marks, no writing, no highlighting. Since they were bound by the publisher, no covers are included for any of the issues, but each volume has a full contents listing with page numbers cited. The bindings are very good for Volumes I, III, VI, VII, VIII, and IX: no splitting in the gutters, no wobble to the boards, red-cloth with gilt lettering still quite bright and fresh in appearance, no noticeable age-toning to the pages. Issues with the three remaining volumes are as follows: Volume II: Damp-stain to front board, with splitting of front endpaper in the gutter, revealing the webbing, which remains intact, but with some wobble to the board. Volume IV: Partial splitting of front endpaper in the gutter, with very slight wobble to front board, and front free endpaper loose and laid in. Volume V: Front endpaper split in the gutter, revealing the webbing, which remains intact, and with some wobble to the front board. All-in-all a superb set of the first full nine years. [Please note: Due to the size and weight of the volumes extra shipping may be required depending on the destination and speed of delivery requested. International buyers may especially wish to inquire before ordering. Quotations gladly provided.] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
