        A Complete Diary of My Work while a Member of the New York Police Department from August 17, 1896, to, and including August 29, 1898

      Very Good. Folio. 152 numbered and lined, else blank pages. Disbound with boards present, some modest staining in the text not marring any text, overall about very good. Detailed handwritten diary of Patrolman Abraham W. Skidmore, Jr. Skidmore provides a legible and reasonably thorough account of his activities for each day, usually comprising of between three and five days to a folio page, but on occasion taking a page or more on particularly eventful days. Also laid in are relevant clippings or other material referring to arrests or cases he was involved in (calling him "William Skidmore"). The clippings are usually tipped in at the relevant places, thus not obscuring the text. Skidmore's begins at the first entry addressing his application to the Department to its Superintendent Theodore Roosevelt (here referred to as "President Theodore Roosevelt" suggesting that this was compiled by Skidmore sometime around or after 1901). He relates the (rather rapid) process of becoming a police officer, including an interview with Roosevelt. After he is given probationary status he leads a lively life - catching thieves, arresting various immigrants (often Irish) for fighting, public drunkenness, and other offenses. He was often called upon to intervene in domestic disputes, hustled off frequently to fires, catches runaway horses and horse-pulled wagons, accompanied prisoners to jail or the work house, and otherwise proved an effective officer. He was not however, afraid to acknowledge his shortcomings, recounting being reprimanded for a violation of the state liquor tax law, and with a small newspaper clipping noting the reprimand.Born in Canarsie, Brooklyn, Skidmore (1872 - 1958) remained in the NYPD for at least a quarter of a century. Apparently he was effective, because in 1925 he became the first Chief of Police (and later Commissioner) of the Nassau County Police Department. By the time of his retirement in 1945, that Department had grown from 55 to 650 officers.What must certainly be an uncommon and detailed personal account of a police officer in New York City at the end of the 19th Century.

        Theodor Herzl Supports Yiddish Version of His Zionist Newspaper Die Welt

      Vienna 1901 - Typed Letter Signed, on the need to support the Yiddish version of the Zionist Paper Die Welt. One page, in German, to his "colleagues" of the Zionist movement. Countersigned by Oskar Marmorek, the secretary of the Actions Committee. March 3, 1901, Vienna. "You understand that the Yiddish edition of the World arose from the need to reach those social strata that were not reached by the German World. It was absolutely necessary to create a periodical which would in a reliable and faithful manner report on Zionist events and the Zionist requirements."Though his newspaper Die Welt linked together supporters across three continents. Herzl recognized that, for his vision of a Jewish homeland to become a reality, Western and Eastern Jews would need to join forces, as would the literati and the Yiddish-speaking man-in-the-street. This letter supports Di Velt, the short-lived Yiddish edition launched in 1900, one of Herzl's attempts to bridge class, cultural and linguistic gaps. Full Translation Vienna, 3 March 1901.Dear Colleague!You understand that the Yiddish edition of the World arose from the need to reach those social strata that were not reached by the German World [Die Welt]. It was absolutely necessary to create a periodical which would in a reliable and faithful manner report on Zionist events and the Zionist requirements. As well as the German World emanated from the advocacy for the Bank, so the Yiddish World should be an official broadside of the Zionist organization's will. This purpose has been fulfilled admirably, although a similar scale event was not yet possible. For this reason some Comrades have again taken on the substantive requirements. However, these requirements are growing day by day. So were complaints from the Russian side that the circular is not written in Russian dialect. Instantly the redaction was made by Mr. Rosenfeld who, although the budget could not bear a larger load, garnered at our request the most outstanding Yiddish writers for the World.It cannot now correspond to the dignity of our Party, and is not in their interests, that some Comrades' needs are left without any support. At least we must demand that our trustees vigorously pursue the moral advocacy for the Yiddish World, as we have always done in similar cases. We ask you that you as forcefully but politely, conduct this advocacy forthwith. The value of reliable publications will increase significantly, if practical results of our achievements are set upon. With Zionist greetings yours faithfully for the Actions Committee:Marmorek HerzlSecretary Chairman.Theodor Herzl (1860-1904). Hungarian-born Austrian, considered the father of modern Zionism. As a journalist covering the Alfred Dreyfus affair in 1894, Herzl realized that the solution to anti-Semitism was the establishment of a Jewish national state. (In 1894, Captain Alfred Dreyfus, the sole Jewish member of the French Army General Staff, was arrested on charges of spying for Germany. Except for the opening day, when the court announced the charges, and the final day, when the jury made its decision, the trial was held in secret. Having attended both sessions and conducting his own research, Herzl became convinced of Dreyfus's innocence. He deduced that the sole reason that Dreyfus was charged was that he was a Jew. Herzl concluded that anti-Semitism was unavoidable. In 1896, Herzl published Der Judenstaadt, arguing that this was a political problem, and the only solution was the establishment of a Jewish State. A year later, he convened the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, where he boldly declared that "Zionism seeks to establish a home for the Jewish people in Palestine secured under public law." His efforts came to fruition 50 years later, when David Ben-Gurion read Israel's Proclamation of Independence in Tel Aviv, beneath Herzl's picture.The recipient, Alexander Marmorek (1865-1923) was a pioneering bacteriologist whose medical a.

        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
