        Dagbok 1775-1817. Öfversatt [från franskan] och utgifven af Carl Carlson Bonde och Cecilia af Klercker. I-IX.

      Norstedts 1903-1942. Totalt nära 5000 s. Illustrerade med 16 porträtt utspridda i de olika delarna + 5 utvikbara brev i faksimil i del 1. Del 1 i andra upplagan (som vanligt), övriga delar i första upplagan. Eleganta, blå halvfranska band med marmorerade pärmpapper och snitt. Ryggarna skavda och olika blekta, pärmarnas kanter skavda. Komplett och uniformt inbunden svit av detta kända verk som är ett av de viktigaste källorna till vår kunskap om den gustavianska epoken. Nio volymer.. Orsaken till att det ofta är olika nyanser och lite olika dekorationer på banden är att om dom är samtida bundna (i detta fall ett spann på 39 år) så är det ibland (som i detta fallet) olika bokbindare och därmed inte samma skinn och förgyllningsstämplar. Hedvig Elisabeth Charlotta, född 22 mars 1759, död 20 juni 1818, svensk drottning 1809-1818, från 1814 även norsk drottning, dotter till hertig Fredrik August av Oldenburg, gift 1774 med sin kusin, hertig Karl av Södermanland, sedermera kung Karl XIII.

      Milan: Hoepli, 1903-1925. 1/2 Leather. Very Good. Three Volumes. Folio. Modern half green leatherette and marble boards. Collation: Vol. 1- xii, 1-393pp + portrait and 21 plates; Vol. 2- viii, 397-735 pp. + 21 plates; Vol. 3 - viii, 737-1257 pp. + 9 plates. The binding, text and plates are in very good condition. The sewing of the plates occasionally has a thread passing through a small hole in some of the plates. This does not affect viewing of the image. This work was originally issued in stiff paper boards and has been rebound. There was a fourth volume, Sovitti su orgamenti variee 1903-1925, that was published in 1929.The present set of volumes provides an extensive collection of Golgi’s major works on neurons and numerous other cells as well as his research on malaria. Golgi introduced a selective silver stain that stained individual neuronal cells and a discrete reticulate structure inside cells, subsequently called the Golgi Apparatus. With his staining method, Golgi was able to study “of the finer anatomy of the nervous system. Using this technique, he identified Golgi’s Type I and Type II nerve cells and did other detailed studies of the cerbrum, spinal cord, and olfactory system. Golgi later determined the correct course of the uriniferous tubules and their relation to the glomeruli of the kidney. In 1886, only a few years after Laveran’s discovery of the malaria parasite, Golgi described the parasites of the tertian and quartan fevers and their nonsexual development. Together with Ramón y Cajal, Golgi was awarded the Nobel prize in 1906 for their many contributions into man’s understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system.” (Heirs of Hipporcrates, p. 611 no. 2056) .This is an exceptionally scarce publication of Golgi’s research, much of which only appeared as journal articles, with only 350 copies printed.

        Der Tanz der Zukunft. (The Dance of the Future.) Eine Vorlesung. Übersetzt und eingeleitet von Karl Federn

      Eugen Diederichs (Breitkopf & Härtel), Leipzig 1903 - First edition of Duncan's first book. Text in German and English. In original, illustrated hard paper. 46, (2) p.; portrait frontispiece and a single double-sided plate. A printed version of Isadora Duncan's first public lecture that became the manifesto of modern dance. A progressive, feminist text, with arguments against the nineteenth-century women's fashion, ideals of beauty, the notions of artistic form and classic ballet, and a praise of harmony and the idea that became Duncan's trademark "natural". "It is not only a question of true art, it is a question of race, of the development of the female sex to beauty and health, of the return to the original strength and to natural movements of woman's body. [?] The dancing school of the future is to develop and to show the ideal form of women" (pp. 22-23.). "The dancer will not belong to a nation but to all humanity. She will dance not in the form of nymph, nor fairy, nor coquette but in the form of woman in its greatest and purest expression. She will realize the mission of woman's body and the holiness of all its parts. She will dance the changing life of nature, showing how each part is transformed into the other. From all parts of her body shall shine radiant intelligence, bringing to the world the message of the thoughts and aspirations of thousands of women. She shall dance the freedom of women." (p. 25.). An extremely scarce book on the market, despite the relative high number of copies in institutional holding. [Ragona, Melissa: Ecstasy, Primitivism, Modernity: Isadora Duncan and Mary Wigman. In: American Studies, Spring 1994. Volume 35, Number 1.]. In original, illustrated hard paper First edition of Duncan's first book. Text in German and English [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Poems of Passion

      London: Gay and Bird, 1903. First edition. Extremely rare binding executed by Miss M. Marshall and Edith J. Gedye (with their collaborative monogram on rear dentelle, "M & G 1905"). Superb light tan pigskin with elaborate inlaid red and green florets comprising stylized petal and flower motif, inlaid red spheres and stippling throughout, gilt ruled dentelles. Miss Marshall was a binder at 5 Bloomsbury Square where Sangorski and Sutclissfe had their first bindery in the early 1900's and worked collaboratively with Edith J. Gedye early on in their careers. They exhibited their bindings in 1903 and 1906 at A&CES Exhibitions and were active selling their work through 1907 (see Tidcombe). As well, Gedye went on to produce excellent quality bindings up to 1920. The binding here represents an early collaboration of these two fine women binders. Some corner wear, slight wear. A rare binding indeed.

        Typhoon, and Other Stories

      London: William Heinemann, 1903 First edition, first printing. One of 1,500 copies. Publisher's dark gray cloth, with an illustration of a lifebuoy surrounding the title lettering to the front board in gilt, spine lettered in gilt. Very good plus, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, light rippling to the panels, lacking the terminal publisher's catalog, spine lightly cracked inside the rear cover, otherwise sturdy and intact binding, former owners' inscriptions to the front endpapers, minor toning to the free endpapers, otherwise bright and clean interior. Overall, a pleasing and attractive copy. Wise 13. Typhoon is a collection of four short stories: "Typhoon," "Amy Foster," "Falk: A Reminiscence," and "To-Morrow." Each of the stories has a nautical setting and draws inspiration from Conrad's tenure in various merchant navies; "Typhoon," tells the story of a ship captain's struggle against the powers of nature. Additionally, Conrad's experience of exile from Poland manifests itself in the themes of isolation and migration found throughout the text, especially in "Amy Foster" and "To-Morrow." "Amy Foster" tells the story of an emigrated Pole adjusting to her new life in England, and "To-morrow" tells of the homecoming of an aging sailor's long-lost son. Similarly, "Falk" is about a tug-boat master whose dark secret prevents him from properly courting the woman with whom he is in love. Interestingly, the eponymous story "Typhoon" was originally published in a separate edition in the United States in 1902, but there was no English equivalent until 1912, making this its first appearance in book-form in England.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        FORTY-EIGHT YEARS IN THE WEST. DICTATED TO MISS MARY SHERRIFF BY MOSES MANUEL. HELENA, MONTANA. 1903

      Privately printed, 1903., 1903. 12-page carbon copy of typed manuscript containing memories of Moses's life with much about mining. Manuscript begins with his life in Minnesota in 1855. Offers many reminiscences of various Indian troubles, hunting trips, buffalo hunting, his brother, Fred, joining the 10th Minnesota Regiment and serving in the Civil War. Moses started for Montana in the spring of 1867 arriving in Helena in late September. When Moses did reach Helena, he found that his brother Fred had come the year before and began placer mining. In the winter the two followed the Belt Range across the headwaters of Trout Creek in search of gold. Experiences of hunting in the snow and ice, frost bite, having no supplies nor food, winter storms, lack of timber so buried themselves in snow in order to keep warm, difficulties of traveling with horses, numerous encounters with or barely avoiding various Indian tribes. Information on prospecting and the difficulties and expenses of doing so. "In 1874 I followed the Alaska excitement to the north. I went to Fort Wrangel on the steamer and from there we took Indian canoes and with four men in our party went to what is called Telegraph Creek and from there there was no way to get into Deer Lake except on foot, packing our supplies on our backs. Three of us took one hundred and fifty pounds apiece and the fourth man took one hundred and seventy-five pounds, and we went through in eight days. When we reached Deer Creek we found there were few good claims there but they were already located, so we went prospecting and found some small patches of rich ground but not extensive enough to work. We came back to Deer Creek, and there I met a squaw who had been married to a Frenchman and spoke fairly good French. She told us she had been in that country when she was a little girl and had been down the river toward Great Slave Lake and camped at the Fork of the river; that they followed the branch of the river abort twelve miles and one day when she was fishing she lost her sinker, and while looking for a stone to make a new one she found a yellow rock and used that; that later when she was on the Frazer River the gold she saw there made her remember the yellow rock she had picked and she was sure it was the same kind. She gave me a map of the country and we got a skiff and some provisions and went down and found the place just as she represented it. There was plenty of gold there." They worked there for the rest of the season and sold their gold dust for $25,000. Headed to Walla Walla, bought horses and headed to Montana. There he met up with his brother and took a contract and lease on the Whippowill. In spring 1874 they had over four hundred tons of quartz out. Then started back to the Black Hills. "We got to what is called Cooney's Ranch on the North Platte. There we found quite a number of people, some sixty or seventy, waiting for a larger crowd to go into the Hills. We tried to persuade them we were strong enough to go through, but they did not think so, so our little party of fourteen went alone, and all the Indians we saw were sixteen near the mouth of Red Canyon. We ran on them while scouting, but they never saw either us or our train." Upon arrival into Custer, they met Mr. Tallant, "who took the first woman ever in the Black Hills, who claimed they had some very rich quartz mines and also rich placer diggings at Custer." When Fred and Moses arrived there, there was nothing. Then onto Box Elder where the two met Hank Harney and another man (name not mentioned but Alex Engh) and went to Whitewood, where a little gulch called Bob Tail was struck and the men each claimed a piece. "My claims was located near what is known as the Golden Terra quartz mine, and Fred and I got hold of two thirds of it. We made camp at the mouth of Bob Tail Gulch. We wanted to locate a number of quartz claims and got some placer grounds and the Gold Run, for which we ttaded (?) The De Smot lode. Toward spring, in the latter part of March or April, four of us found some rich float quartz. We looked for the lode but the snow was deep and we could not find it. When the snow began to melt I wanted to go and hunt it up again, but my three partners wouldn't look for it as they did not think it was worth anything. I kept looking every day for nearly a week, and finally the snow melted on the hill and the water ran in a draw which crossed the lead and I saw some quartz in the bottom and the water running over it. I took a pick and tried to get some out and found it very solid, but I got some out and took it to camp and pounded it up and panned it and found it very rich. Next day Hank Harney consented to come and locate the Homestake Mine, the ninth day of April 1876." That spring they, sold the Golden Terra to John Bailey of Denver and Deerborn Brother of Cheyanne for $35,000.00. Then they bonded the Homestake to a California company for $40,000 and the Old Ave to Weston Brothers for $5,000. Fred and Hank went to Chicago while Moses stayed and worked and improved Homestake and Old Abe. The two bonds expired and no sale had been made on the mines so, "when Fred and Harney returned, Kellog, the agent for Senator Hearst came up one day and wanted to get a bond on the Homestake and we agreed on a bond at $70,000.00 for thirty days. A few days later Captain Huron came up and wanted to buy the Old Abe and offered us $45,000.00 for it which we took. Both bonds were complied with and paid for within the limited time." (The Homestake Mine was the largest and deepest gold mine in North America, producing more than 40 million ounces of gold during its lifetime.) In the spring of 1876 Spiegle and Alec McBatt and Moses had four claims on Whitewood. They found that the ground wasn't very good so they gave the four claims to Alec, cautioning him to always keep one may out scouting while they worked as Indians were all around. The first day the scout came in to help prospect and McBatt was shot. Moses continued prospecting and eventually, "In the spring of '82 Fred came out from Minnesota for his health and I took him up Basin Gulch and prospect for some time around the country and finally discovered the Mittie and Josephine mines which are well know mines at the present day." Moses sold his interest in both mines to Fred and bought Fred's interest in, "the Minnesota mine which I have been operating practically ever since with very good results." The final page is dated October 3, 1951, and is an appendage by Edna Manuel Adamson, daughter of Moses Manuel, stating that she copied the manuscript which is in her possession, for Mr. Guy Norman Bjorge and the historical record of the Homestake Mine. Also offers information on marriage, children and Moses Manuel's death on July 5, 1905, caused by an explosion of gasoline fumes in the shaft of his Minnesota Mine near Helena, Montana. Verso of Appendage is a letter written in pen and states, "Jen, This is about all that the library has that's worth anything. As far as I can tell this is the sorce where the get the 'info.' for their propogande books. Hope you can use this: Sever Ivan (?)." Guy Bjorge was the author of books on the Homestake Mine, written in the 30s and 40s. In contacting the Homestead Visitor's Center, who referred me to the Hearst Library in Lead, I have been unable to locate any copies of this manuscript anywhere. Steven T. Mitchell's Nuggets to Neutrinos says, "Talks about Moses, Alec McBatt, Speigle being shot." Mention in Watson Parker's Gold in the Black Hills. Manuscript housed in stiff folder with title label affixed. Document is clean. A great document filled with valuable information and interesting experiences. A very special item.

Rare First Edition! - Heinrich Ernst Albers-Schönberg (1865-1921) "invented the compression diaphragm, the function of which is to intensify the object by cutting out secundary rays." - "Heinrich Albers-Schönberg (1865-1921) fand, als er sich der Röntgenologie zu widmen anfing, so gut wie völliges Neuland vor.

        The Call of the Wild

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1903 Illustrated by Philip R. Goodwin and Charles Livingston Bull. Decorated by Charles Edward Hooper. First edition, first printing. Publisher's decorative olive green cloth designed by the unidentified designer with the monogram "CX" with three panel illustration of sled dogs and their masters in the Yukon to the front board in red, white, and black, illustration of a sled dog to the spine in red, white, and black, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, blue pictorial endpapers illustrated by Hooper, pictorial title page illustrated by Hooper. About near fine, with light wear and rubbing to the extremities, bright spine, minor rubbing to the front board, slight lean to the spine, else fine. Overall, a bright and pleasing copy. Originally published serially in The Saturday Evening Post in 1903, The Call of the Wild is the story of a domesticated dog harnessing his wild instincts during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon Territory. The novel is written from the point of view of the main character Buck, a St. Bernard-Scotch Collie, who is stolen from his happy home in California and, after being mistreated by a series of handlers along the way, is taken to the Klondike region of Canada to be trained to work as a sled dog. Although he struggles to adapt to pack life, Buck quickly proves himself, becomes pack leader, and eventually finds a new, benevolent owner, with whom he remains until the owner's death, at which point Buck goes completely "into the wild." In 1906, London published the companion novel White Fang, the thematic opposite of The Call of the Wild; while The Call of the Wild concerns a dog's natural wild instincts, White Fang is about an undomesticated creature's ability to be tamed.. Illus. by Goodwin, Philip R.; Bulll, Charles Livingston; Hooper, Charles Edward. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
