        Psychiatrie. Ein Lehrbuch für Studierende und Ärzte.

      Leipzig Barth -04 1903 - 7. vielfach umgearbeitete Auflage. Lex. - 8°. XV, 478 S.; XIV, 892 S. mit 2 Tafeln in Lichtdruck, 11 Tafeln in Autotypie, 31 Figuren im Text, 22 Schriftproben. OrLn. Das erste wissenschaftliche Lehrbuch der Psychiatrie. *** Mit eingedruckter Widmung für den Psychiater Bernhard von Gudden. *** Hier in der siebenten umgearbeiteten Auflage mit Ergänzungen im "allgemeinen Teile hat namentlich die Lehre von den Erscheinungen des Irreseins eine umfassendere Durcharbeitung erfahren. [.] Auf klinischem Gebiete sind neben Anderem die alkoholischen Geistesstörungen, das Irresein bei Hirnerkrankungen und die Schlussabschnitte des Buches wesentlich umgestaltet worden." Ferner beschreibt Bd. II ausführlich die Epilepsie (S. 623-682), die damals noch zu den psychopathologischen Erkrankungen gezählt wurde. *** Das vorliegende Werk erschien 1883 erstmals noch als "Compendium der Psychiatrie". Es erlebte insgesamt neun Auflagen mit unterschiedlichen Textveränderungen bzw. Kapitelüberarbeitungen. "Die wissenschaftliche Psychiatrie in allen Ländern wies der Arbeit von Kraepelin einen hohen Rang zu. Sein großes Verdienst wurde darin erblickt, daß es ihm gelang, aus der großen Zahl einander sehr ähnlicher seelischer Störungen zwei große Gruppen als selbständige Krankheitseinheiten.herauszuheben: die Dementia praecox und das manisch-depressive Irresein.Blickt man auf die zuletzt von Kraepelin beabsichtigte Ordnung der seelischen Krankheiten und vergleicht sie mit dem heutigen Stand der psychiatrischen Wissenschaft, wird man ohne jede Übertreibung sagen dürfen, daß die von Kraepelin in jahrzehntelangem Ringen mit dem schwierigen Gegenstand geschaffene Systematik bis heute.durch nichts Besseres ersetzt werden konnte" (Kolle). - Vgl. ferner Garrison & Morton 4941: ".was one of the greatest of all psychiatrists and a pioneer of experimental psychiatry. - Kolle, Große Nervenärzte, Bd. 1, S. 175 ff. - *** Schönes Ex., Text fast fleckenfrei, Bibl. - Signet auf dem Rücken, Leineneinband am Rücken minimal fleckig, insgesamt gute Erhaltung dieses bedeutenden Werkes.

        An Experimental Study of Sensation

      Harvard Psychological Laboratory, Cambridge 1903 - Library REBIND in hardcover, library stamps/marks/labels/slip, light tone, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover.; "Printed for the use in the Elementary Experimental Courses of the Harvard Psychological Laboratory" - title page. Undated, with Preface bearing October, 1903 date. "The chief phenomena exhibited by each of the senses are, we may say, the following: Threshold, Intensity, Latent Period, Duration, After Image, Exhaustion, Perception of Time, Perception of Space, and Feeling Tone. In the present course these phenomena are studied under several senses successively, since it has been found by the authors that this repetition of the same phenomenon under different senses enables the student to grasp the complex subject of sensation with relative ease. The authors believe, moreover, that such an arrangement emphasizes a fact of which the significance to psychology has been much underestimated." - Preface. Contents: Preface; I.

        CONDUCTION OF ELECTRICITY THROUGH GASES

      Cambridge University Press: Cambridge, England, 1903. Octavo, original olive cloth gilt lettered. pp (viii), 566, (2); diagrams and photos in text; indexed. Light rubbing to joints and spine tips; light spotting to spine, gilt spine lettering a little dulled but clear; tanning to page edges, light yellowing to endpapers; front free endpaper has old light ink prices in upper fore corner, a Jan., 1904, ink ownership name and a later owner's 1954 ink inscription; small 1904 owner's name in ink at top of half-title leaf, and he has made a one line ink note to the bottom margin of p. 7; in all, a VG unworn and tight copy, hinges not cracked. Thomson won the 1906 Nobel Prize for physics "in recognition of the great merits of his theoretical and experimental investigations on the conduction of electricity by gases.". Sir Joseph had experimentally demonstrated the existence of the electron, as well as the existence of sub-atomic particles in general, advancing the "plum pudding" model of the atom, that the "corpuscles" (electrons) he discovered floated in a sea of positve charge (a model that went out with his one-time student Rutherford's discovery of the positively charged nucleus.) He also invented the mass spectrometer and discovered the concept of isotopes. Thomson was a gifted teacher as well, seven of his research assistants as well as his own son won their own Nobel Prizes. "I have endeavored in this work to develope the view that the conduction of electricity through gases is due to the presence in the gas of small particles charged with electricity, called ions, which under the influence of electric forces move from one part of the gas to another." - opening of Preface. PMM 386d, under the heading "Cathode Rays". "Thomson had provided experimental proof of the theoretical speculation of Lorenz (378). In doing so, he had revolutionized the science of physics. The 'indescructible' atom was no more and it began to seen likely that the common constituent of all matter was a form of energy. Thomson's discovery opened up new fields in almost every branch of physics and initiated such departments as thermionics and photo-electricity."- PMM. One of the most important published science books of the 20th century. Note: pp vii-viii (Contents leaf) and pp 545-46 (Supplementary Notes, Chapter I) are cancels. Page 545 is hand numbered. Presumably, a second state. Binding: Hardcover.

Some occasional light foxing, otherwise a clean and sound set. Top edge gilt all other page edges are hand cut. Some pages roughly handcut. Scarce. Limited to 1000 sets. This is the first [Smith Elder] Edition.   The Author's Edition was a joint publishing venture between D. Appleton of New York and the London firm of Smith, Elder and Company. 510 sets were bound by Smith, Elder and Company. The remaining 490 quires were passed to John Murray when the company was sold; they were re-issued with new title-pages dated 1903 in and after 1917. The author considered this edition of his works to be of great importance: he revised parts, and added notes and a number of special introductions. He remarks in the preface that it had for some time been his ambition to have such a collection: "I have never, however, desired that that edition should be complete. On the contrary, the great charm of such a new departure was that it gave me an opportunity of finally casting off what my more mature judgment told me to be unworthy and of retaining what my conscience approved . . . I have expended all pains in putting these books into their final form, and so I leave them." Because of the author's friendship with Reginald Smith, he agreed to sign the thousand copies of the English issue. He was not, however, prepared to do the same for the American publisher, though he was asked. He made it known that he would only consider doing so for a considerable fee. The English issue also has the further attraction of having two illustrations in each volume rather than one. The Author's Edition was less successful than expected, so no new works were added as had been the original intention, though the American publisher did include The Hound of the Baskervilles."   Condition Report Externally Spine – very good condition – new, twin red title labels.

It was the custom at this date for book proofs to be bound in cloth instead of the now familiar wrappers, and it is conceivable that this is one of a number of copies so made up. As far as we have been able to determine the text does not vary from that of the published volume. Certainly it exhibits all the internal flaws mentioned by Smith, none of which are attributable to type-damage subsequent to setting. V. Smith, pp.32-4. From the library of the late Stanley J. Seeger, with his small book-label on the front pastedow, All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        Portrait photograph.

      [Victoria, London: Scherill Shell,, c.1903]. Platinum print (237 x 193 mm), black thick paper mount. Very slight rubbing to the corners of the print, some very faint superficial scratches, but excellent, the mount a little ruffled at the corners and with some glue related abrasions to verso. This portrait of a pensive W. B. Yeats was taken by London-based American photographer Sherril V. Schell (1877-1964), who during the first decades of the 20th century in his Victoria studio executed portraits of several London literary figures such as Wilfrid Wilson Gibson and, famously, Rupert Brooke. Schell has signed the mount in pencil, and stamped both the print and mount verso "Photograph by Sherril Schell, 116, Victoria Street, S.W., Telephone:-7144 Victoria". This print was one of several in different poses from the same sitting retained by Yeats himself, has been since in the family by descent. Another image from the Schell sitting was used as the frontispiece for Forrest Reid's monograph, W. B. Yeats, a Critical Study (1915) which was the first of its kind.

        THE TALE OF SQUIRREL NUTKIN

      London and New York: Frederick Warne & Co, 1903. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (title page dated 1903 and without the reference to the author of "Peter Rabbit"). This is the third of Beatrix Potter's 22 "little books" for young readers, this one featuring the antics of a little red squirrel and his friends, and the thwarting of their nemesis, Old Brown the owl. Potter's always charming illustrations are also quite accurate in their natural detail, honed by years of sketching from nature. As "Feminist Companion" observes, Potter's "is the perfectly realized yet gently ironic world of the bucolic miniaturist in which, although tragedy is averted, anthropomorphism exists alongside a truthful respect for animal nature." After a lonely childhood brightened by her love of nature and drawing, Potter (1866-1943) found a niche for herself in children's literature, delighting generations with tales based on her pets and the small wild creatures she loved. She mostly retired from writing following her marriage at age 43, to raise sheep on her Lake District farm and to work tirelessly with the National Trust to preserve that lovely area of England. Our previous owner, Alberita Napier Richards, attended the University of Wisconsin and wrote a play that was copyrighted in 1913, when she resided in Rock Island, Illinois.. 145 x 105 mm. (5 5/8 x 4 1/8"). 84, [2] pp. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (title page dated 1903 and without the reference to the author of "Peter Rabbit"). Publisher's brown boards, color illustration mounted on front cover, illustrated endleaves. With 27 color illustrations by Potter. Front pastedown with neat inked label: "Alberita Napier Richards. From Uncle George. 1904." Quinby 5. A little shaken (open at gutter in the middle of the book), short split to front joint, trivial loss of paper from head and tail of backstrip, front free endleaf excised, but the fragile original binding still holding together well, and the text clean and bright.

President Roosevelt writes to his close friend and editor of "The Outlook," Lawrence Fraser Abbott (1859-1933). In full: "My dear Mr. Abbott: Mea culpa! I had totally forgotten about Tyner.
