        THE WORKS

      Macmillan and Co London: Macmillan and Co, 1902. The "Cambridge Edition.. The Standard Text of Shakespeare, inNine Volumes of Attractive Zaehnsdorf Morocco 235 x 159 mm (9 1/4 x 6 1/4").Nine volumes. Edited by William Aldis Wright. Very appealing olive brown half morocco over green linen by Zaehnsdorf (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), raised bands, spines gilt in double-ruled compartments with dotted inner frame and floral cornerpieces as well as large central ornament formed by two crossed swords, a crown, and a garland, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges rough trimmed.Jaggard, p. 699 (1897 ed.). Spines uniformly sunned to a very pleasing honey brown, first volume with shallow chipping at top of spine and with one band a little abraded, otherwise only trivial defects, the bindings in all other ways showing only very minor signs of use, and the text quite clean and fresh. First published in 1863-66, and with revised editions issued in 1867 and 1891, the acclaimed Cambridge edition of Shakespeare is generally acknowledged as the standard text of England's greatest dramatist. According to DNB, editor William Aldis Wright (1831-1914) "was the first editor to give due attention to the Elizabethan usage of words, and the value of this series has been acknowledged by many later editors. It was in his nature to be silent about poetic beauty and dramatic genius; but learning, accuracy, and common sense combined to make him one of Britain's greatest Shakespearean scholars." Our set has the added attraction of pretty bindings by Zaehnsdorf that reflect the firm's usual high quality materials and workmanship.

        [Manuscript]: "The Harvard Base Ball Season of 1902" in Harvard Graduates' Magazine

      1902. First. Seven pages Signed at the conclusion by Barrett Wendell of the class of '77, undated but presumably 1902. A little soiling and finger smudging (probably by typesetters), else about fine. Each page lightly rubberstamped with the name of Harvard Graduates' Magazine where we assume it appeared. The team's season was marred by injuries and disqualifications of players but with the help of Boston's Cy Young, who worked with the pitchers, and "Wee Willie" Keeler of Brooklyn, who worked with the hitters, the team went 21-3. Wendell was an early contributor to the Harvard Lampoon and went on to become an important educator. His course in English Composition at Harvard was an influence on a great many writers, and the textbook that he developed was the standard college text for decades. He is credited with being the first Harvard Professor to offer American Literature as an object of systematic historical and critical study. Turn of the century baseball manuscripts are uncommon. .

      1902. hardcover. a fine copy of Kipling's children's classicKipling, Rudyard. JUST SO STORIES for Little Children. Illustrated by the Author. London: Macmillan and Co., 1902. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in black and white. First Edition of Kipling's famous collection of twelve tales (with poems), such as "How the Camel got his Hump," "How the Leopard got his Spots" and "How the Alphabet was Made." Kipling himself did the 22 full-page illustrations. As Stewart points out, the covers of the earliest copies bound were decorated with a white pigment that readily flaked off; subsequent copies bound used a new ink that adhered properly. This is therefore one of the few instances in which collectors do not prefer the earliest state -- as such copies are identifiable only by the loss of much of the pictorial cover design. In any event, on this copy the white pigment has adhered properly over the years. W This is a handsome copy, fine except for a little foxing on the endpapers only. Richards A181; Stewart 260. CHILDREN'S / JUVENILE (Sumner & Stillman Code:12011)

        The Study of the Pulse, Arterial, Venous, and Hepatic and of the Movements of the Heart,

      First Edition, xx, [1], 325pp with 335 textual illustrations, royal octavo, a very fine copy in original cloth, almost without blemish, Edinburgh & London: Young J. Pentland, 1902. * FURTHER PHOTOGRAPHS ON REQUEST.* Garrison-Morton 2812. "Mackenzie became interested in cardiac arrhythmias early in his career and developed the well-known Mackenzie Ink Polygraph to assist him with his studies. This work was the first scientific treatise on irregularities of the pulse and established Mackenzie's reputation as one of the leading heart specialists of the day. He describes and depicts his clinical polygraph, fully explores the nature of the pulse and concentrates on the clinical significance of the pulse in diagnosing irregularities of the heart" (Heirs of Hippocrates 2149). * Sir James Mackenzie FRS (1853 -1925) Scottish cardiologist, pioneer in the study of cardiac arrhythmias. He qualified as a doctor in 1878 from Edinburgh. In his early studies Mackenzie used Riva-Rocci's sphygmograph to graphically record the pulse. Later Mackenzie devised a "polygraph," that allowed him to make simultaneous records of the arterial and venous pulses. He used this to evaluate the condition of the heart and to measure the AV interval. In 1890 he discovered premature ventricular contractions and use of the polygraph enabled Mackenzie to make original distinctions between harmless and dangerous types of pulse irregularities (arrhythmias). Mackenzie also demonstrated the efficacy of Digitalis in the treatment of arrhythmias and made important contributions to the study of the energetics of the heart muscle. In 1915 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and was knighted. - Wikipedia
