        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

        BEIJING WAN SHOU SHAN QUAN JING: PANORAMA OF BEIJING WAN SHOU MOUNTAIN.

      Hang Zhou [n.d. ca 1901-1920], Hang Zhou Qi Wen Si Zi Chang Zi Zao. Color silk weaving, 84 x 19 cm., stapled to a wooden board, gold wood frame, the weaving has 1 spot at top center 2.5 x 2 cm. & a few other rubbed through spots, else solid. THE SUBJECT: This is a very rare, unusual and lovely item. It is a machine woven illustration of the inside of the Beijing Imperial Palace [Gu gong] & Forbidden City [Zijincheng]. Especially showing the area around the Summer Palace and Lake Kunming. It shows people in row boats on the lake, with the lovely marble boat as the background, as well as Jingshan Park, also known as "Prospect Hill." DATE These are very obscure and most didn't last from such a long time ago. While there is a date stamp in red on the wooden mounting board lower right-hand corner, it is very feint and hard to read anything other than "Nian" [year] & Yueh [month] but on numbers visible. We estimate this to have been done some where about 1901-1920's, after the end of the Boxer Rebellion. COLOPHON/TITLES: On the left margin, is the publisher's name: HANG ZHOU QI WEN SI ZI CHANG ZI ZAO: HANGZHOU SILK WEAVING FACTORY. Also on the left margin is "7 x 32" which likely refers to the size of the item in inches, which are actually 7 3/8 x 33 inches when stretched and stapled to the backing board. The right margin states the title in Chinese: BEIJING WAN SHOU SHAN QUANJING: PANORAMA OF BEIJING WAN SHOU MOUNTAIN. CONDITION: The work has a hole at the center top margin in the sky, and has a gray paper mounted behind the weaving to keep it intact. There are also some minor number of to her small rubs, here and there. Because this item was stretched- mounted with staples, this caused some "pull" to the fabric. At the left one-third of the weaving the sky is showing some stress lines going horizontally across to the center, as is the right one third sky portion as well. Otherwise, the work is nicely intact, and not damaged. The old staples are copper plated, therefore no rust is evident. We strive to point out every flaw of significance but commonly over describe such flaws. Overall and by and large this is a very nice, stable and obscure item. Few have survived the ravages of time and attrition rate. FRAMING / BACKING BOARD: The backing board is 100% wood, consisting of 7 panels glued on end to form one single and long board. Over this is a gold-painted wooden frame consisting of thin wood, with mitered corners, which acts as a mat, to cover the edges and staples. This frame/mat wood is placed over the textile weaving, and is therefore ready for a larger glazed frame. There is a silver label adhered to the gold frame at the bottom center it reads CHI WEN SILK WEAVOMG CO., and has Chinese characters above that name. Nice association with the weaving. RARITY. This and other works from the Chi Wen Silk Weaving Co. are quite rare and seldom found on the market. We have seen one other which is a panoramic view of Shanghai and the Huang Po river. Please inquire for information. SHIPPING: Being an extra long item, appropriate extra shipping & packing charges will apply. Please inquire prior to ordering to request shipping cost information. We reserve the right to ship this by Federal Express as they are the most reliable & dependable shipper for delicate and large items. .

        Typed Letter Signed ("Booker T. Washington, Principal") to Mrs. Romaine Wade, declining her request to help find domestic servants, and expressing a preference that his graduates stay in the "Southland"

      Tuskegee, 1901. 1 page. Oblong 8vo. Old folds. 1 page. Oblong 8vo. Washington replies to a Mrs. Wade in Santa Barbara, California, who had evidently sought help finding domestic servants: "Referring to your letter which has just been received, I am very sorry to say that I am unable to assist you in the matter of securing such domestics as you desire. Although we have a great many young women taking our course in domestic science, none of them seem disposed to leave the school at this time in the term to take up work in other directions. However, we rather urgue upon our graduates to remain in the South after completing their course as we believe the Southland offers greater opportunities for their usefulness among their own people."

        VIEWS OF THE NORTH CHINA AFFAIR. [Photographed During the Boxer Rebellion, 1900]

      - Tokio 1901, Yamamoto. Oblong album, color pictorial stiff wrs., purple silk ties, mild/faint center fold, a remarkably clean, bright copy, 58p., 40 large photos 26.5 x 20 cm., 21 smaller photos ca. 12.5 x 8.5 cm., album size 39 x 26.5 cm. with a total of 114 b.w. photogravures. *** THIS IS A VERY RARE BOOK, WORLDCAT ONLY LOCATES 3 COPIES ! * THE BOXER UPRISING 1900 This work documents the results of the Boxer Uprising of 1899-1900, where in anti-foreign sentiments reached a boiling point. Several foreigners were killed, mostly missionaries, later when foreign embassies were besieged some diplomats were also killed. This resulted in the combined efforts of these foreign countries who teamed up to suppress this rebellion. This rebellion was mostly limited to North China where it began in Shandong province under German control and spread Westward across Northern China through Beijing. * This work shows historic photographs of the foreign troops occupying Beijing [Peking], China. Good photographs of these troops in and around the Forbidden City, namely those from Japan, Russia, France, America, and Germany. * What makes this graphic work important, is that it shows a good part of the Palace and other Forbidden City buildings as the were before the troops actually damaged or pillaged these historic sights. Each country garrisoned their troops in a select group of old buildings, hither to unseen by commoners and especially never by any foreigner. It is a superb look at the inner world of the Emperor of China. * THE PHOTOGRAPHER: Yamamoto Sanshichiro was a Meiji era photographer, born in 1855 in Okayama [Japan]. From 1882 to about 1897 he had a photographic studio in Tokyo. Later when news of the Boxer Rebellion swept the world, he quickly went to Peking to photograph the historic activities of foreign troops in the capitol, including the Japanese. After photographing the aftermath in Peking, he finally settled down in Tianjin and opened his third photographic studio. * CONDITION: This work is truly an excellent copy, externally and internally. There is a very tiny bit of edge wear at the lower right [a tiny chip loss] and upper left front corners. The purple silk ties are bright, solid and very clean. There is a very slight hint of where this book was probably lightly folded in half but not hard and there is a mild hint remaining. From about the middle onwards there is not much evidence of this at all. By and large, we feel this work is an excellent copy. There is NO damp or other condition issues with this item. Overall exceptionally clean and solid throughout. This is a very RARE book has seldom been found let alone in such lovely condition. A REMARKABLE COPY ! See photographs posted to our website from this copy. * RARITY: Worldcat only locates three copies in the world. This is indeed a very RARE book ! See reference below for more information. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: The author/photographer was noted for photographing and publishing two other superb photographic books on China: "Peking" published in 1906, and his stunning "View and Custom of North China" in 1909. * EDITION: This is the FIRST and ONLY SMALL EDITION of this book. * REFERENCE: Please see worldcat: r/oclc/25266060&referer=brief_results * Yamamoto Sanshichiro is amazingly NOT FOUND in any of the 3 Terry BENNETT books: .

        Sonntag vor den Thoren von Paris.(Bucolique modern).

      - Farbholzschnitt, 1901, auf Bütten. Darstellungsgröße 26:39 cm, Blattgröße 32,2:45,4 cm, auf Untersatz montiert. Literatur: Lutz-Brissonneau 271. Erschienen im Verlag der Gesellschaft für vervielfältigende Kunst, Wien. Von 1862-71 lernte Lepère in der Werkstatt des reproduzierenden Holzschneiders Joseph Burn- Smeeton (tätig in Pairs um 1840/60), nahm Zeichenunterricht bei Horace Lecoq de Boisboudran (1802-1897) und bildete sich nebenher als Maler aus. 1870 stellte er im Salon Landschaften und Stilleben aus. Seit 1872 arbeitete er in Ateliergemeinschaft mit dem Graphiker Henri Pierre Paillard (1844-1912). Seit 1876 entstehen vor allem Holzschnitte und Radierungen, ab 1881 war er leitender Illustrator bei „Monde Illustrée" und bereiste verschiedene Regionen Frankreichs. Er gilt als Erneuerer des Holzschnitts. Gemeinsam mit Charles Maurin (1854-1914) und Henri Rivière (1864-1951) entdeckte er den japanischen Holzschnitt und die ursprünglichen Techniken des Farbholzschnitts. Er nimmt die Originaltechniken – Holzschnitt mit der Richtung der Holzfaser und Schnitt mit Taschenmesser – wieder auf, die eine ganz besondere Sensibilität für die Qualität des Materials erfordern.
