        The Elf: a Sequence of the Seasons, with original drawing

      (London: James Guthrie), 1902-3. Four small octavo volumes. 26pp. each, printed rectos only, with the exception of the last volume, Winter, in which the colophon was printed on the verso of the final page. Each volume is one of 250 copies, written, illustrated, and designed by James Guthrie of the Pear Tree Press. The volumes are all lavishly illustrated with Guthrie's artwork, from the numerous full-page illustrations and text decorations in each book, to the decorative endpapers and cover designs. This set comes with Guthrie's original pen & ink drawing for the title page of the Autumn issue. The drawing shows the artist's process in action, as corrections have been made in a number of places. For example, Guthrie changed his hand-lettered name under the title from uppercase to title case, and he decided to redirect the grape vines that form the primary motif of the drawing, removing one small section in the process. The cardstock to which the drawing is affixed has been signed "By J. Guthrie." This set forms the second series of The Elf, the first having been released in 1899 as Guthrie's first publication. Unlike that series, this second group was printed at the Old Bourne Press, and all aspects of the book, from the text and illustrations to the overall design, were achieved to great effect under Guthrie's direction. Bound in printed paper-covered boards. The set is uncommonly fine. Housed in a quarter-leather slipcase and cloth chemise.

        Autograph Letter Signed "L. Binger" to "Mon cher compatriot" Regarding a Portrait of General Dobbs Ordered by the Governor of French Senegal].

      Paris 1902 - Paris, 19 July 1902. Octavo (ca. 21x13,5 cm). 1 p. Black ink on paper on the printed letterhead of the "Ministére des Colonies". Paper mildly soiled and worn on folds, with very small holes on the centrefold not affecting the text. Overall a very good letter. In his letter to a French artist or art dealer, Louis Binger, then the director of the French Ministry of the Colonies, informs his correspondent, that "Monsieur General Governor Roume wanted to acquire the portrait of General Dodds at the price of 1000 francs. The portrait has been delivered to the framer and to the Magazin Central du Colonie which will send it off to Senegal. As soon as it arrives to the colony, the bill will be paid, and you'll be able to get the money in three weeks or in about a month" (in translation). "Louis Gustave Binger was a French officer and explorer who claimed the Côte d'Ivoire for France. In 1887 he travelled from Senegal up to the Niger River, arriving at Grand Bassam in 1889. During this expedition he discovered that the Mountains of Kong did not exist. He described this journey in his work Du Niger au golfe de Guinée par le pays de Kong et le Mossi (From the Niger to the Gulf of Guinea through the land of the Kong and the Mossi) (1891). In 1892 he returned to the Guinea Coast to superintend the forming of the boundaries between the British and French colonies. In 1893-1898 Binger was a governor of the Côte d'Ivoire. Louis Gustave Binger died at L'Isle-Adam, Île-de-France, France and was buried in the Cimetière du Montparnasse in Paris. The city of Bingerville is named after him" (Wikipedia). Ernest Nestor Roume (1858-1941) was a French colonial administrator, a governor of French West Africa in 1902, and a governor of French Indochina in 1914-1917. "Alfred-Amédée Dodds (1842-1922) was a French General, commander of French forces in Sénégal from 1890, commander of French forces in the second expeditionary force to suppress The Boxer Rebellion, and commander of French forces during the Second Franco-Dahomean War. As both an octoroon and a metis, he was famed in the African Diaspora at the beginning of the Twentieth century as an example of African leadership, despite the fact that he led the destruction of one of West Africa's most powerful pre-colonial states" (Wikipedia).

Übrigens muß in den "Fliegenden" von ehedem, in den Sammlungen: 50 Bilderbogen; Kunterbunt; Schnacken und Schnurren (Braun u. Schneider, München) noch mancherlei stecken, das Ihr Register nicht angiebt. Ein Bilderbogen (Junge mit Wurst und Hund) wurde, wie ich mich erinnere, einstmals im "Daheim", ein anderer, (Fuchs u.

Mit Hochachtung Ihr ergebenster W. B." - // - Der begeisterte Leser Spinola hatte einen sieben-seitigen Brief (Bohne 1360) an Wilhelm Busch geschrieben, in dem er sich zunächst ausführlich dafür entschuldigt, dass er seine Einsamkeit störe. Aber er will unbedingt wirklich alle Werke seines Lieblingsschriftstellers lesen: "Es war mir trotz aller Mühe bisher leider nicht möglich, mir eine sichere, zuverlässige Liste Ihrer gesamten Werke zu verschaffen, besonders auch deshalb, weil dieselben bei verschiedenen Verlagen erschienen sind und weil ich hier im Ausland lebe. Ich möchte nun aber gar zu gern mit Sicherheit alle Ihre Werke haben." [Unterstreichungen von Spinola]. Am Schluss seiner Anfrage zählt Spinola auf fast drei Seiten sämtliche Einzelwerke von Wilhelm Busch auf, die er besitzt. Er bedauert noch einmal, dass es "keine einheitliche Ausgabe Ihrer gesamten Werke gibt". - Buschs Neffe Otto Nöldeke (1867-1948), aus dessen Nachlass unser Brief stammt, gab die erste Ausgabe von Wilhelm Busch "Sämtliche Werke" in 6 Bünden erst 1943 bei Braun & Schneider heraus.

        Manuscript Archive - US Naval Station Pearl Harbour - Lost Grave of a Boston Merchant

      Honolulu, 1902. Hawaii, US Naval Station Pear Harbor, 1902-1920. Archive of 66 official documents US Navy documents pertaining to the Naval Station and Hospital in Honolulu, with notable signatures such as those of Admiral Hugh Rodman, Commander John F. Merry, Medical Officer W. E. Taylor, Rear Admiral William B. Fletcher, Surgeon General Charles F. Stokes, and others. Many are on printed stationery with the Department ensign; many are from the Navy's Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. Together with a collection of 18 related contemporary newspaper clippings, and 1 illustrated biographical publication remembering Honolulu's leading Commandant's at the turn of the century (8vo. 8 pages). A few documents age-toned, otherwise the lot in very good condition, contained in an archival box for protection. The early history of Hawaii's Naval Station Pearl Harbor, and continued improvements from its establishment into World War One, in particular its hospital, medical facilities, and staff quarters, are outlined in a comprehensive collection of authoritative signed documentation, at the time in which the decisions and changes were taking place. The voluminous archive of succinct documents provides insight into concerns of disease and sanitation, internal processes for promotions and for monitoring health standards, the sometimes fatal perils of naval duty, administrative pay logs, and more. Perhaps the most fascinating papers in this collection are those of a most honorable, tangential task undertaken - an enquiry made in 1913 by celebrated US Surgeon General Charles F. Stokes, to locate an unmarked grave of an early China Trade merchant, which was purported to have been situated on the Whitney Estate on King Street, Honolulu. The commander whose fate was due to an accidental gun firing form a British warship on 2 September 1802, was Charles Derby of Salem. Buried in a in a pasture on the outskirts of Honolulu, and may have been the first American to be buried in Hawaii. Upon expansion, and construction of estate residence, the tombstone was relocated to the grounds of the Kawaiahae church, in Honolulu, by Reverend Parker, 4 documents, spanning March to September 1913, the earliest signed by Stokes, provide little-known information from local residents, on the burial and the removal of the tombstone, a scarce primary resource. Boston merchant in the China trade, Captain Charles Derby of Salem, and commander of the 'Caroline of Boston', was completing a three year voyage to the Pacific and China, which had begun in 1799, when he died in the Sandwich Islands. In the second year of the voyage Derby was struck with an acute case of tuberculosis, and thus resigned the command to his young mate, none other than William F. Sturgis , disembarking his ship at Honolulu, and dying there in 1802. W.F. Sturgis (1782-1863), at the early age of 19, with less than four years?' sea experience, suddenly became master of a fine ship of 150 tons, and the management of her trade on the Pacific Northwest coast and in China. He proved worthy of the trust and brought the Caroline with her valuable cargo safe to Boston Harbour, 115 days from Canton. He made a subsequent voyage commanding the same ship, from Boston in July 1803, calling at the Hawaiian Islands, and reaching the Northwest Coast in January 1804. In following years he would prosper in the China trade, then the California hide trade and the Maritime Fur Trade. The Boston Magazine, Vol. 1, 1802-1803, reports Commander Derby's death as being at the island of Whahoo [Oahu] in the Sandwich Islands, which was then under rule of High Priest and King Tamaahmaah (Kamehameha I). Woahoo (Wahoo, Woahoo) was the island on which was situated the king's royal residence. The Hawaiian Planter's Monthly, Vol. 7, published in Honolulu 1888, contains an excerpt from the journal of a friend and shipmate of Commander Derby [Captain Richard J. Cleveland], which recalls their voyages together, the commander's death, and the headstone, originally placed "in the land of Kewalo" in Honolulu. Richard Jeffrey Cleveland published a narrative titled "Fur Trading Voyage: from China to the Northwest Coast of America, 1799" in which he describes a winter voyage on the brig Caroline from China to Norfolk Sound, Alaska, mutiny of some of the crew, and fur trading with Indians. The remainder of the archive consists of the following documents: 10 medical tickets, nine of which relate to USS Iroquois (1902-1903) and are signed by Rodman. Four of the latter are also signed by Captain W. H. Whiting, and one is signed by Rear Admiral John F. Merry. All documents are signed by W.S. Taylor, Medical Inspector. One of these pertains to a patient carrying a venereal disease apparently contracted in Honolulu in 1902, finally being transferred to Mare Island in 1911. The examined sailors were serving aboard the U. S. S. Iroquois, commanded by Lieutenant Hugh Rodman. Illness included chronic rheumatism, ulcers, a fractured skull as a result of brawl on shore and not consider in the line of duty, two cases of syphilis, an abscessed foot, pelvic sarcoma (a cancer) and two cases of typhoid fever. All were admitted to the U. S. Army Hospital for treatment. 4 medical discharge forms for USS Iroquois in 1902 each signed in the original by Admiral Hugh Rodman, together with 1 medical survey addressed to Rear Admiral F. Merry, concluding that an oiler at sea, suffering from chronic rheumatism remains 'unfit for duty' and should be sent to Mare Island in California. Scenarios here include a sexually transmitted bacterial disease called Chancroids which kept a sailor in hospital care for two weeks, a case of an abscessus wound infection to a wrist, a case of measles, Diarrhea acuta which was deemed to be from causes incident to the service. At the time, the Navy was small enough that reports such as these, pertaining to individual men, was forwarded from Bureau of Medicine and Surgery to the US Navy's Surgeon General. Many of the above documents involve Medical Inspector William E. Taylor, U.S.N., Department of Navy, whose service in Honolulu spanned decades. Herein is a letter to him dated 12 February 1903, from Rear Admiral M. Rixley, Surgeon General of the Navy, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, from 1902-1910, and signed in the original. With extolling sentiments Admiral Rixley for Taylor's work in Hawaii, he acknowledges the need to provide for "Hospitals and stations to be brought up to modern requirements in the treatment of all classes of disease, whether medical or surgical..." 3 letters addressed to the Medical Officer in Hawaii from 1907 and 1916, pertain to issues of internal billing procedures for furnishings, a periodical subscription, and a number of requisitions. Together with 1 requisition form for surgical supplies, signed by Read Admiral Samuel W. Ferry and surgeon G. Smith. 1 letter dated 7 August 1913, from US Navy Secretary Josephus Daniels, in response to a previous recommendation by Senator Ollie M. James who suggested Dr. Ralph T. Orvis for further opportunity in the US Navy. Orvis was surgeon and Executive Officer at the Naval Hospital in Las Animas, Colorado, who was previously a passed assistant surgeon in Culebra, Puerto Rico. Daniels responds favorably, and adds a manuscript note which reads, "I spent Saturday with Dr. Orvis at the hospital near Las Animas and was greatly pleased with him." 18 newspaper clippings, mostly from the Honolulu Star Bulletin 1919-1920, relating to the history of the US Navy and its leading commanders in Hawaii, approximately half of these being a portrait of a former commandant with a succinct summary of service. Reports deal with the Yeomanettes who had served on active duty in the Navy since 1917 and were being released from service in 1919, the history of the U.S. Navy in Hawaii until the official opening of the dry dock in 1919, notable naval men who held commands in Honolulu, biographical sketches of Lieutenant F.G.W. Cooper and Peter Dubois - who served the navy for 30 years, and was honored in Pearl Harbor, and announcing the death of Admiral Rodman (1940). A biographical sketch titled 'Four American Rea-Admirals: Rodman, Wilson and Niblack, and Dunn', [the first three named were stationed at Pearl Harbor and all three eventually became admirals]; in which are tipped-in 3 medical documents pertaining to navy patients at the Honolulu Queens Hospital. Of the four officers, Rodman, Wilson and Niblack were stationed at Pearl Harbor, and all three eventually became admirals. Tipped in at the end of each brief biography is one or two documents signed by the future admiral and the admiral then in command of the navy base. 3 Death Reports (1913-1914) each pertaining to a Marine who lost his life while in Hawaii. One of the late men had attempted to climb over a fence surround the Navy Yard while under the influence of alcohol, fell and struck his head. A young private died after diving into shallow water, his head hitting the bottom, fracturing a vertebra and crushing his spinal cord. The third cause of death was from a forty foot fall from an unstable precipice edge, whilst on duty on a "tramping trip" at the head of the Manoa Valley, enduring the same fatal injuries as the latter. 8 documents relating to physical examinations from 1904 to 1911, three of which confirm quarterly physical tests completed in March 1911 by a Major General, a Captain, and a 1st Lieutenant, typed on Marine Barracks stationery, Naval Station, Honolulu. 4 documents relating to the appointment of a Henry L. Greenough as a hospital steward in Honolulu 1909, and subsequently in 1910, one of which is a certificate. Captain James T. Smith, commander of 'USS South Dakota' signs one of the documents. 6 documents from 1905 to 1916 relating to the appointments or promotions of staff for the US Naval Station in Hawaii, beginning with the formation of medical boards in 1905, 1908 and 1909. Together with 1 refusal for an incomplete application for a posting. One of these documents is signed by Rear Admiral William C. Braisted who served as Surgeon General of the Navy from 1914-1920. 2 original sanitary reports, 1908 and 1915, 5 pages combined, the first performed by a surgeon, the second by the Medical Officer to the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. In 1915 mosquito breeding was a concern, as were the pigs kept by a Chinese restaurant owner near the hospital, though not posing a direct problem at the time. Ongoing modernization was underway, in the way of permanent water facilities, wiring and fixtures for electric lights, and installation of telephone lines. 1 Transfer Pay Roll, for men serving at the U.S. Ship Naval Station, Hawaii, dated 31 March 1911. Submitted by boatswain B. H. Shepley, and approved to verso with the stamp of Read Admiral W.C. Cowels, 20 sailors are named here, with their rank, total pay for the month of March, unpaid balance, date of enlistment, and date of each discharge for previous posts held. 4 documents pertaining to officers' requests for specific quarters assigned to them at the Naval Station in Honolulu, 1915 to 1919. One of these is a refusal received by U.S. Naval Radio Service telegram. Admiral Hugh Rodman (1859-1940)was an officer in the United States Navy who served during the Spanish-American War and World War I, later serving as the Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet from 1919 to 1921. During the Spanish-American War, he served in Raleigh (C-8) and was commended for his outstanding conduct in the Battle of Manila Bay. In 1899, he participated in scientific explorations in the Pacific under the direction of Alexander Agassiz. Then, in 1900, he returned to Alaska for work investigating its fisheries. From 1901 to 1904 he commanded USS Iroquois in Hawaiian waters. Promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral in 1917, Rodman served as Commander, Battleship Division 9, Atlantic Fleet, in his flagship, New York. Ordered to European waters late in the year, his division joined the British Grand Fleet at Scapa Flow and became the 6th Battle Squadron, British Grand Fleet, under Admiral Sir David Beatty. For the remainder of World War I, Admiral Rodman commanded his division in operations in the North Sea. For this service, he was invested as a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath by King George V. USS Iroquois (AT-46), a commercial steam tug commissioned in 1898, was assigned to Commander F. Merry as part of his operations at Naval Station Honolulu. Rear Admiral Charles Francis Stokes (1863-1931), was Surgeon General of the Navy from 1910 to 1917 when he retired. He joined the Navy in 1889 as an assistant surgeon. His duties carried him to Cuba during the Spanish-American War, to the Orient during the Boxer Rebellion and the Philippines during the insurrection. As the first medical officer to command a hospital ship, the 'USS Relief,' he ignited a controversy that shook up the senior Navy leadership. He was appointed Surgeon General in 1910. From 1903 until 1906, Dr. Stokes he served as President Theodore Roosevelt's personal physician. Stokes was also a pioneer in abdominal surgery and devised the first-aid dressing which the Army and Navy used in modified form during the World War. He also devised the Stokes splinter stretcher, still in use, which proved of great value used in the close confines of ships. He raised the professional standards of the Medical Corps, instituted prophylaxis which practically ended typhoid in the Navy, planned and built the naval hospital at Pearl Harbor, and initiated planning for two new hospital ships: USS Mercy and USS Relief. Pearl Harbor, known to Hawaiians as Pu'uloa, is a lagoon harbor on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i, west of Honolulu. Much of the harbor and surrounding lands is a United States Navy deep-water naval base. Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Empire of Japan in 1941. Commander John F. Merry was the first of the Navy Commanders of the Honolulu base. Lieutenant Rodman and Captain W. H. Whitting took over in 1902 as the commandant of the navy base. Following the annexation of Hawaii, Pearl Harbor was refitted to allow for more navy ships. In May 1899, Commander John F. Merry was made naval representative with authority to transact business for the Navy Department and its Bureaus. He immediately assumed control of the Coal Depot and its equipment. To supplement his facilities, he was assigned the Navy tug Iroquois and two coal barges. Inquiries that commenced in June culminated in the establishment of the "Naval Station, Honolulu" on 17 November 1899. On 2 February 1900, this title was changed to "Naval Station, Hawaii." The creation of the Naval Station allowed the Navy Department to explore territorial outposts. In October 1899, Nero and Iroquois made extensive surveys and sounding of the waterways to Midway and Guam. One of the reasons for these explorations was to select a possible cable route to Luzon. A coal famine and an outbreak of the bubonic plague were the only two incidents that hindered the Commandant from fulfilling his duties. Because of the severe coal shortage in September 1899, the Commandant sold coal to the Oahu Railway and Land Company and the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company, Ltd. From 1900 to 1908, the Navy devoted its time to improving the facilities of the 85 acres (34 ha) that constituted the naval reservation in Honolulu. In 1908, the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard was established. The period from 1908 to 1919 was one of steady and continuous growth of the Naval Station, Pearl Harbor, with the exception of the discouraging collapse of the drydock in 1913. The drydock was ceremonially opened to flooding on 21 August 1919, by Mrs. Josephus Daniels, wife of the Secretary of the Navy. In 1917, Ford Island in the middle of Pearl Harbor was purchased for joint Army and Navy use in the development of military aviation in the Pacific. As the Japanese military pressed its war in China, concern over Japan's intentions caused the U.S. to begin taking defensive measure 3 Naval Duty Orders despatched during the First World War, one of the recipients being a female officer, Mrs. Florence K. Manary, Yeoman, 1st Class, USNRF. Very Good.

        Galvanometrische registratie van het menschelijk electrocardiogram. [In: Herinneringsbundel Professor S.S. Rosenstein]

      Leiden, Edouard IJdo, 1902. 4to. Original full gray-brown cloth with lettering in white to spine and front board. Capitals and corners with some waer. Otherwise fine, tight, and clean. Pp. (101) - 106 + 1 plate. [Entire volume: (6), XI, (1), 750 pp. + frontispiece + 15 plates].. Rare first edition of this milestone in the history of medicine, namely the seminal paper that introduces modern practical electrocardiography, containing the very first illustration of the first modern ECG recording. "In 1902 Einthoven published an article in Dutch that included the first description of a human electrocardiogram recorded with a string galvanometer." (100 Books Famous in Medicine). "Einthoven demonstrates the improved results obtained with his new equipment for registering electrical activity of the heart. He shows superior performance of the string galvanometer by comparing the original technique of Waller, employing Lippmann's capillary galvanometer, and the results of his own improvement of this method with the tracings obtained with the new device. His report is illustrated with the first modern ECG recording and with the customary P,Q,R,S,T notation." (Gedeon). Like the invention of X-rays in the mid 1890'ie, the introduction of the electrocardiogram - with the present paper - completely revolutionized the practice of medicine. Together, these two seminal inventions inaugurated the modern era of diagnosis. Willem Einthoven (1860-1927) received his medical degree from the University of Utrecht in 1885 and was appointed professor of physiology at Leiden the following year. Having initially been primarily interested in physiology of vision and the neural control of respiration, his reaserch began, from ab. 1894, to focus on electrophysiology, especially the electrical activity of the heart. "Einhoven was convinced that records of the electrical activity of the heart in humans would have clinical value, and his major contribution to medicine was the development of instrumentation leading to the introduction of clinical electrocardiography. In 1877 British physiologist Augustus D. Waller had recorded the first human electrocardiogram using a capillary electrometer, but this instrument was cumbersome, and the electrical signals it recorded were markedly damped by the poor high-frequency response of its mercury column. Einthoven was able to correct these curves mathematically to produce useful tracings, but he sought to develop an instrument that would make electrocardiography more practical. Although he tried first to improve on the capillary electrometer, he then abandoned this approach in favor of using a galvanometer. Initially Einthoven employed a D'Arsonval moving coil galvanometer, but eventually he discovered that a string galvanometer was better suited to record graphically the electrical activity of the heart. ...Einthoven's string galvanometer and the instruments derived from it allowed scientists and physicians to study disorders of cardiac impulse formation and conduction in humans. The galvanometer was soon used to characterize the electrical manifestations of acute mycological infarction, an important development that provided physicians with a reliable method of diagnosing this serious medical condition. THE INTRODUCTION OF THE ELECTROCARDIOGRAM, TOGETHER WITH THE DISCOVERY OF X-RAYS IN 1896, REVOLUTIONAZED THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE, SIGNALLING THE ADVENT OF THE MODERN ERA OF DIAGNOSIS." (100 Books Famous in Medicine)."Einthoven showed his string galvanometer could portray the electrical changes occurring in the human heart. Modern electrocardiography became a reality through his work and the string galvanometer finally displaced the capillary electrometer in the measurement of the electric current produced by the contracting heart." (G&M)It was long believed that a German paper entitled "Die Galvanometrische Registrirung des menschlichen Elektrokardiogramms...", 1903, was the first publication on the electrocardiogram. Modern research has shown, however, that it is instead the present paper by Einthoven, contained in the Dutch Festschrift for Prof. Rosenstein, which "preceded the more widely known German paper by a year." (100 Books Famous in Medicine, Preface p. XVI). Grolier: 100 Books Famous in Medicine: nr. 89.Gedeon: nr. 71.See also: DSB vol. IV, pp. 333 - 335.Garrison & Morton: 842 (being the 1903 paper that was previously thought to have been the first to introduce Einthoven's string galvanometer)
