        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)

Originally published in 1898 in vol. i of Plays Pleasant and Unpleasant, this is the only Separate Edition of bibliographical significance (see Laurence A30 Note); and it was published following the play’s first performance, in January 1902. This is rather a nice association copy, inscribed on the half-title ‘To Arthur Symons, the author of that epigram about Euclid (see pp. xxii & xxiv), from G. Bernard Shaw, 6th June 1902.’ Symons, to quote Shaw, ‘a distinguished critic . summed up the impression made on him by Mrs. Warren’s Profession, by declaring that the spirit of Tolstoy and the spirit of Mr. Shaw is the difference between the spirit of Christ and the spirit of Euclid’: Shaw goes on ‘Mrs Warren’s Profesion is no mere theorem, but a play of instincts and temperaments in conflict with each other and with a flinty social problem that never yields an inch to mere sentiment.’ (Laurence A49)

Meakin's interest in Morocco began at an early age when his father relocated to Tangier in 1884 and opened the first English newspaper.He was just 18 at the time but "at once studied the Moorish people and their language. Adopting native dress and the native name Tahar bil Mikki, he mixed freely with all classes, soon mastered the Moorish dialect of Arabic. and closely observed Moorish life" (ODNB) In 1891 he published an English-Arabic dictionary, though the three volumes here are considered his greatest contribution to the study of Morocco, providing a comprehensive overview of its history, geography, trade, customs and so forth. There is also an account of his travels disguised as a Moor.

        Lieder des Ghetto ubertragen aus dem Judischen von Berthold Freiwel, illustriert von E M Lilien

      Berlin: Cavalry, 1902. Zweites Tausend. Original publisher's decorated cloth designed by Lilien. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, two abraisions on facing pages from binders glue (?) otherwise in fine original state. Quarto. 144, [7] pp. including final advertisement. Profusely illustrated throughout by E.M. Lilien with borders and decorations on every page, and a number of full or double-page illustrations OUTSTANDING COPY, APPARENTLY PRINTED ON FINE PAPER. Ephraim Moses Lilien (1874-1925) has often been described as the first artist of the Zionist Movement, or even labeled at times the "first Zionist artist." Lilien's "Lieder des Ghetto" is one of his first published books (he was only 28 years of age) and one of masterpieces. His meticulous and imaginative renderings are perfectly suited to Rosenfeld's passionate songs of immigrant Jews and the plight of American sweatshops. It was this work that inspired Stefan Zweig's 1903 monograph, "E.M. Lilien und sein Werk." "The illustration for the poem 'Der Judische Mai' ('The Jewish May') with its unabashedly emotional depiction of an old Jew who, bound with thorns and guarded by snakes, stretches his arms with a tearful and yearning look toward the sun which rises over an enchanted dream-vision of a Zion underneath which flows a meandering river bedecked with lush vegetation and palm trees. For the Diaspora Jew yearning for a Zion he had never seen, few images can equal this one in its direct emotional appeal (in this respect, it is far superior to the 'Passah' illustration). Some of the illustrations of Lieder des Ghetto convey a hidden sense of uneasiness. It is not just a matter of sinister bats and vampires, or snakes rearing their heads in the border decoration. In a less obtrusive manner, it is introduced even in the illustration for the poem "Mein Kind," which follows a long Romantic tradition of portraits of children, whose innocence and purity find their counterparts in flowers and other creations of unspoiled nature. Here, though, this innocence seems to be threatened, since the heart-shaped frame surrounding the child's head is made of thorns. Such an almost undefined quality of bizarreness, even perverseness, can also be discerned in the illustration for the poem "The Creation of Men." It is not so much that the image of Herzl, as one of the angels present at the creation of man, is shown practically naked, although this does have a somewhat bizarre effect" (SOURCE: Haim Finkelstein, Lilien and Zionism, passim). Berthold Feiwel, writing in the "Forward" to Rosenfeld's "Lieder des Ghetto" perceived a call to action in song: "The poet of the modern ghetto will become the singer of modern Zionism, of the powerful liberation movement of a vital Jewishness, which will lead the Jews out of the new imprisonment [of modernity] into the ancient homeland, into their piece and their freedom." Lilien was the foremost contributor to the early visual vocabulary of the Zionist Movement, and some of his images have persistently kept a firm hold on the imagination of later generations. He was, furthermore, actively involved over a period of years with the Zionist Movement, and served as representative to the Sixth Zionist Congress. He was one of the founders of the Judischer Verlag, the Jewish publishing company in Berlin whose publications propagated the artistic and literary output of the Jewish Renaissance. He also took part in establishing the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem. IN EVERY WAY A WONDEROUS BOOK -- MUST BE SEEN TO BE FULLY APPRECIATED.
