        Gakken Nihon shibunsho mokuroku (Japanese). Atlas of Skin diseases. Installment 1 (of 10).

      Asakaya-Shoten, Tokyo 1903 - Folio (47,4 x 32,8). 5 numbered plates in chromolithography. This installment contains the plates I, V, XXI, XI and VI. There are two leaves of explanatory text each for plates I, V and VI, and one leaf each for plates XXI and XI. All leaves with illustrations in black and white, the explanatory text in Japanese. There are also two leaves of smaller size in japanese, not explaining any illustrations, but giving some information about this atlas. The loose text leaves and the loose plates housed in a new cassette with a title label. We join the original cassette left to the label a handwritten dedication to a Japanese medical doctor (Dr. Mika) by Keizo Dohi. - First edition. - Löser/Plewig/Burgdorf 235-244; Ehring 236. - Neither a complete atlas nor a single installment ever appeared in the trade. One of the greatest rarities in medical history especially in dermatology worldwide. The plates are of magnificent quality. Dohi was born on 9 June (after the moon calendar) in Echizen-fuchu (now Fukui prefecture) and died on 6 November 1931 (after the Gregorian calendar) in Tokyo. He was the second son of the physician Eshiwata, who died when he was young. Before completing medical school, he took the name of Dohi from his adoptive uncle. After studying medicine in the Royal University in Tokyo 1885 -1891 he received his medical degree and started 1891-1892 with surgical training in Tokyo. In 1893 Dohi made his first trip to Germany, working in the surgical clinic in Heidelberg under Vinzenz Czerny (Trautenau/Bohemia 1842-Heidelberg 1916), a famous surgeon active in the University of Heidelberg. From 1894-1896 he trained in Vienna under Moriz Kaposi and Isidor Neumann, sponsored by the Japanese government with the endorsement of Czerny. This was followed by further training and studies in dermatology in major European universities (Prague, Breslau, Berlin, Paris, Moscow, Bologna and Rome. In 1904 he accompanied Prince Komatsu to the coronation of King Edward VII of England and again visited many European dermatological centers. His third European trip from July 1910 to July 1911 took him to Bern, Breslau/ Wroclaw, Berlin, Frankfurt, Vienna and Paris. ¿ In 1898 he became Professor and Chairman of the new Department of Dermatology and Syphililology in Tokyo, also teaching urology. At that time dermatology was often combined with urology. In 1900 he founded the Japanese Dermatological Society, and in 1907 the Japanese Society for the Prevention of Sexually transmitted diseases (see also Löser/Plewig/Burgdorf). No copy in the big medical collections and no copy in the Karlsruher virtueller Katalog. Karlsruher virtueller Katalog is a book search engine administered by the library of the University of Karlsruhe. It searches a large number of catalogs of research libraries in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, as well as several important national libraries in other countries, and some large commercial catalogs. The KvK is said to encompass 500 million books and serial publications. According to a publisher¿s label inside the cassette this installment cost 3 Yen, the annual salary of a young policeman during that time. Produced by the Oshiba Shiro Company in Tokyo-Kanda and printed by Nomura Sojuro in Tokyo-Tsukiji. We offer this installment in a new cassette and join the original cassette (on its right half damaged rubbed, waterstained, defects to spine, wormholes). The new cassette, the plates and the text leaves in excellent condtion [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Half of pages uncut, offsetting from plates. Overall crisp and clean. Numerous lithographic plates of fossils. In 1896, John Bell Hatcher conceived of, planned and secured the greater part of the funding for three expeditions to Patagonia, as well as the idea of publishing the results of the expeditions with funding from J. Pierpont Morgan. The trips were chronicled in the Princeton University Expeditions to Patagonia, 1896-1899.

        SlÃ¥tter (Norwegian Peasant Dances), op. 72 - SIGNED AND INSCRIBED TO JULIUS RONTGEN

      Leipzig: C. F. Peters, [1903]. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Important copy of the beloved Norwegian composer's SlÃ¥tter (Norwegian Peasant Dances) for piano, op. 72, signed and inscribed by Grieg on the title page to the German-Dutch composer and pianist Julius Röntgen. He has penned in Danish: "Til min kjaere Julius Röntgen med Tak for de "StrÃ¥ler" og til Erindring om Frue Haagen fra din Edvard Grieg" ("To my dear Julius Röntgen with thanks for the sunshine and in remembrance of Mrs. Haagen, yours, Edvard Grieg") and dated July 27, 1905. Light performance markings in pencil throughout, likely in Röntgen's hand, as well as various notes in pencil on the wrappers. 53 pp. [PN] 8918. Original wrappers unfortunately detached, with tears and heavy wear; disbound, pages grouped in intact signatures; some toning, but internally in fine condition and overall good.<br style="">Grieg's Norwegian Peasant Dances resulted from a collaboration with the Hardanger-fiddle player Knut Dale and the violinist Johann Halvorsen. On the suggestion of Dale, who feared that the unwritten tradition of his instrument would be lost without being notated, Grieg asked Halvorsen to transcribe some of Dale's best fiddle tunes. Grieg then arranged these for piano, and both the violin and piano versions were published. Grieg wrote that he found the project "interesting, but but extremely difficult work," as expressing the folk idiom of the Hardanger fiddle through the medium of the piano presented unique problems, but writes in the introduction that "Those who can appreciate such music, will be delighted at the originality, the blending of fine, soft gracefulness with sturdy almost uncouth power and untamed wildness as regards melody and more particularly rhythm, contained in them."<br style="">The German-Dutch composer and pianist Julius Röntgen studied with Reinecke and Lachner and was a close associate of Grainger, Brahms, Grieg, Joachim, Nielsen and others. He spent many of his summer holidays in Denmark and maintained close friendships there. This score was likely gifted by Grieg to Röntgen after a stay at his Danish country house, Fuglsang, where Röntgen enjoyed hosting other musicians for long stays of swimming, boating, and chamber music.<br style="">A fine inscription from the Romantic Norwegian composer most celebrated for his Piano Concerto in A minor, for his incidental music to Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" (which includes Morning Mood and In the Hall of the Mountain King), and for his collection of piano miniatures, Lyric Pieces. <br>

Original red cloth over bevelled boards, spine lettered in gilt, vignette to front board gilt, top edge gilt, black coated endpapers. 275 illustrations to the text, from engravings and photographs.

Spine sunned with manuscript shelf-mark in gilt, extremities lightly bumped and rubbed, a few small marks to covers, bookplate skilfully removed from front pastedown. A very good copy. First edition, 320 copies printed, of this uncommon, still-authoritative account, based partly on the records of the author's brother, who served as medical officer to the punitive Benin Expedition of 1897, in which British troops under Sir Harry Rawson sacked Benin City and brought to an end the Kingdom of Benin: looting occurred on a grand scale, and such goods as were not auctioned off to defray war costs ended up in the British Museum. In 1878 Roth travelled to Australia on a commission to investigate the local sugar industry. "After leaving Australia in 1884, he settled in 1888 'in business' at Halifax, Yorkshire, England. In his spare time he prepared numerous manuscripts for publication and reorganized the chaotic Bankfield Museum ? His most notable publications include works based on information provided by others and remain standard texts: The Tasmanian Aborigines (1890), which was republished in 1899 in what Roth rejoiced as near 'absolute completeness' on the subject; The Natives of Sarawak and British North Borneo (1896); and Great Benin: Its Customs, Art and Horrors (1903)" (ADB).

        "I can re-christen the bishop at any time" - Autograph Letter about Naming a Character

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A very interesting autograph letter from the beloved American novelist and short story writer to the American astronomer Edward Singleton Holden. October 22, [no year.] Responding to a letter in which Holden apparently tried to help her with a question about the titles of Catholic bishops, Wharton writes: <br style="">"It is very kind of you to have remembered an enquiry made so long ago, & your information does not come too late - though, alas! it comes in the wrong language. The difficulty was to know how R. C. bishops were designated in English in the 18th century - or in the 19th, for that matter. If you come across a solution of this question please think of me again. My book is still in the making & I can re-christen the bishop at any time." On her Lenox, Mass. letterhead. 2 pp. of a bifolium. Central crease from mailing, else in fine condition. <br style="">The letter likely concerns Wharton's story "Expiation," which was originally published in Hearst's International-Cosmopolitan, in December of 1903, when Wharton had acquired a reputation as a writer but had not reached the large readership she was to gain two years later, with The House of Mirth. The story is about a young woman novelist who is awaiting with a mixture of anticipation and fear the press's reaction to the publication of her first novel, Fast and Loose (an ironic reference to the unpublished novella by the same name which Wharton wrote in 1876-1877, when she was fifteen). The novice, Paula Fetherel, a comfortably married and respectable New York society lady, has an uncle, the self-important Bishop of Ossining, whose literary works include "The Wail of Jonah" (twenty cantos in blank verse) and "Through a Glass Brightly," an edifying tale of a poor consumptive girl struggling to support her two idiot sisters. The bishop's works, we gather, do not sell well and Fetherel fears that her bishop uncle will be irrevocably offended by the light morals of her book.   Eventually the bishop is persuaded to denounce his niece's novel from the pulpit, whereupon it immediately becomes a best seller. <br style="">Although she did not publish her first novel until she was forty, Edith Wharton was an extremely prolific writer, publishing fifteen novels, seven novellas, and eighty-five short stories, as well as poetry, books on design, travel, literary and cultural criticism, and a memoir. She and her husband, Edward Wharton, were keen European travelers, often spending four months of the year away from the United States. A well-connected member of the upper class, Wharton was also a friend and confidante to many gifted intellectuals of her era, including Henry James, Sinclair Lewis, Jean Cocteau, and Teddy Roosevelt.<br style="">Edward Singleton Holden was an  American astronomer and the fifth president of the University of California. A prolific writer, he wrote mostly on scientific subjects, but also published several books and articles on history and current events.

From the Arabic Text of Shehaboddin Mohammad Nasawi Zeydari Khorandezi. Das Buch erschien als Band 19 der von Ehsan Yarshater herausgegebenen Reihe Persian Text Series. Beigabe: Handschriftlich unterzeichnete Grußkarte von Ehsam Yarshater. Wikipedia über den Verfasser: Mojtaba Minovi (1903 Tehran-1976 Tehran), the well-known Iranian historian, literary scholar and professor of Tehran University. he was a participant in the Ferdowsi Millenary celebrations in 1934 in Tehran. Wikipedia über den Herausgeber: Ehsan Yarshater (born April 3, 1920) is the founder and director of The Center for Iranian Studies, and Hagop Kevorkian Professor Emeritus of Iranian Studies at Columbia University. He was the first full-time professor of Persian at a U.S. university since World War II. He is one of the 40 editors of the Encyclopædia Iranica, with articles by 300 authors from various academic institutions. He also edited the third volume of the Cambridge History of Iran, comprising the history of the Seleucid, the Parthians, and the Sassanians, and a volume entitled Persian Literature. He is also an editor of a sixteen-volume series named History of Persian Literature. He has won several International awards for scholarship, including a UNESCO award in 1959, and the Georgio Levi Della Vida Medal for Achievement in Islamic Studies from UCLA in 1991. Lecture series in his name have been instituted at the University of London, and the University of California, Los Angeles, and at the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique in Paris. Born in Hamadan, Persia, Ehsan Yarshater studied Persian language and literature at the University of Tehran and Iran philology (Old and Middle Iranian) at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London with Walter Bruno Henning. His Tehran University dissertation dealt with Persian poetry under the Timurid Shahrukh (15th century). His University of London dissertation, elaborated and published later as A Grammar of Southern Tati Dialects (Mouton, 1969), describes a series of Tati dialects spoken in the southwest of Qazvin. He has published a number of articles on modern western Iranian dialects, notably Tati and Taleshi, and the Jewish dialects of Persian (including Lotara'i), and on Persian mythology. Although born into a Baha'i family, he has had no affiliation with the religion as an adult, and has said that he himself is not a Baha'i. Wikipedia über Jalaloddin: Jalal ad-Din Mingburnu (full name: Jalal ad-Dunya wa ad-Din Abul-Muzaffar Manguberdi ibn Muhammad) or Manguberdi (Turkic for "Godgiven"), also known as Jalâl ad-Din Khwarazmshâh, was the last ruler of the Khwarezmian Empire. Following the defeat of his father, Ala ad-Din Muhammad II by Genghis Khan in 1220, Jalal ad-Din Mengübirti came to power but he rejected the title shah that his father had assumed and called himself simply sultan. Jalal ad-Din retreated with the remaining Khwarazm forces, while pursued by a Mongol army and at the battle of Parwan, north of Kabul, defeated the Mongols. Due to the Mongol invasion, the sacking of Samarkand and being deserted by his Afghan allies, Jalal ad-Din was forced to flee to India. At the Indus River, however, the Mongols caught up with him and killed his forces along with thousands of refugees at the Battle of Indus. He escaped and sought asylum in the Sultanate of Delhi but Iltumish denied this to him in deference to the relationship with the Abbasid caliphs. Jalal ad-Din Mengübirti spent three years in exile in India before returning to Persia. He gathered an army and re-established a kingdom. He never consolidated his power however, and he spent the rest of his days struggling against the Mongols, pretenders to the throne and the Seljuk Turks of Rum. He lost his power over Persia in a battle against the Mongols in the Alborz mountains and fled to the Caucasus, to capture Azerbaijan in 1225, setting up their capital at Tabriz. In 1226 he attacked Georgia and sacked Tbilisi, destroying all the churches and massacring the city's Christian population. Jalal ad-Din had a brief victory over the Seljuks and captured the town Akhlat from Ayyubids. However, he was later defeated by Sultan Kayqubad I at Erzincan on the Upper Euphrates at the Battle of Yass&#305çemen (Yassi Chemen) in 1230, from where he escaped to Diyarbakir while the Mongols captured Azerbaijan in the ensuing confusion. He was murdered in 1231 in Diyarbakir by a Kurdish assassin hired by the Seljuks or possibly by Kurdish highwaymen.

        Historia do Fado

      Lisboa: Livraria Guimaraes, 1903. First edition. 8vo, 270 pp, rebound at a contemporary or early date in marbled paper overboards backed in green buckram titled in gilt at the spine, with the original pictorial wraps bound in. Previous owner's private, small ex libris bookplate tipped onto ffep. Illustrated with 13 photographs and drawings. Text in Portuguese. The first edition of the first published book length study of Fado, "still a valuable source for fado historiography, especially when addressing the relationship between popular music and national character and how the vernacular was appropriated." - [Silva, p. 166] Key to Carvalho's project was an examination of the career of A Severa, the legendary and mythologized fadista who is pictured on the front wrap, and of the taverns and underworld of the Lisbon district Mouraria, examining the social fabric and fashions surrounding the Fadistas. The book is valuable for printing the full lyrics to a number of Fado songs, including an early example of socialist Fado [p.262], with a tantalizing footnote stating that a great number of other socialist fados exist. A very good example, showing only light page toning within. There is some fading to the spine and a bit of erosion, perhaps from insect damage, but the gilt remains legible and still bright.

An Landesanstalten-Verwalter Josef Haier: "Ich bin Ihnen sehr dankbar für Ihre freundlichen Zeilen und für die interessanten Mitteilungen über das Verhältnis unserer Väter und unserer Familien zueinander. Ich habe den Namen Ihres Herrn Vaters natürlich in meinem Elternhause sehr oft nennen gehört und war überrascht und erfreut zu hören, dass Ihre Frau Mutter noch lebe [...] Ich habe mich in den letzten Jahren ausschließlich mit Wandmalerei, Mosaik und Kunstgewerblichem befaßt. Was ich malte geht über die Stücke nicht hinaus. Solche auszustellen halte ich aber für unrichtig. Meine Entwürfe für den Gebrauch der Hofoper sind nicht darstellungsfähig, da ich ihnen nur die Stellung von Hülfsmitteln zuerkenne, nicht aber einen Selbstzweck und ein Eigenleben [...]".

        BOOK OF THE CHILD

      - (SMITH,JESSIE WILLCOX AND ELIZABETH SHIPPEN GREEN)illus. THE BOOK OF THE CHILD by Mabel Humphrey. NY: Frederick Stokes, October 1903. Large folio (13 3/4" x 15"). cloth backed pictorial boards, except for slight general soil and tip wear this is a bright, clean and near Fine copy. First edition. In 1902, with Smith's and Green's successful Bryn Mawr calendar behind them, the two women collaborated on a "self-invested calendar project that featured some of the most beautiful works either woman ever painted." (Schnessel p. 38). Stokes immediately asked to publish the illustrations in book form and commissioned Mabel Humphrey to write poems to match the illustrations. The result was the Book Of The Child. Printed on rectos only (one side of the paper), there are 4 magnificent full page color illustrations by Green (one is tipped-in) with smaller illustrations in-text. There are 3 exquisite full page color illustrations by Smith plus the charming color cover (on both covers) as well as smaller text illustrations. The colors are rich and the artwork is almost breathtaking. (A few are reproduced in Schnessel p. 56-7,65 but only 1 in color). This is a scarce title, rarely found in such clean condition.
