        Quer durch Borneo : Ergebnisse Seiner Reisen in den Jahren 1894, 1896-97 und 1898-1900 - 2 Volumes

      E J Brill, Leiden 1904 - Two volumes (complete). In German throughout. A steady, sound, serene set of this extraordinary study of the people of Borneo from the equally extraordinary Dutch explorer, Nieuwenhuis. The set has some wear, some aging. However it is most agreeable. Both are covered in decorated, gilt-stamped, cream cloth boards. The boards of both books are worn, scuffed, marked from storage and handling. They are benign and sure. The head of the spines have been securely repaired with leather patches. The frontis and end papers have wear and marks. They are placid. Volume 1: 493 pages. The trims and edges have wear. The pages are clean, clear, generous, certain, bold. There are very occasional handling marks and some very light foxing. All plates and maps present. Volume II (pub: 1907): 557 pages. The back board has been marked, stained and wrinkled from damp storage conditions. Whilst this has transferred ever so slightly to the preceding pages, these have no audacious marks or wrinkling. The pages are robustly secure. There is age-related foxing here and there about edges and seams. However, the pages are very assured, clean, clear, generous, competent, diligent. Despite the aging and wear, this is a gratifying set. fk [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        AN ALBUM OF PHOTOGRAPHS OF CHINA, 1904-1906. [Includes American Diplomats in Chi

      [China 1904-1906]. Half red leather over marbled boards, recent binding, gold-stamped, very good, 35 x 27.5 cm., all edge gilt [most gone], 18 stiff leaves, 166 b.w. photos, one pencil drawing, one post card, one photo cut out,very clean. This excellent primary record was begun July 1904, and ended with the last photo caption dated June-August 1906. The work is an exceptionally clean example, with meticulous captions, clear and bright images, of varying sizes. The smallest is 6 x 4.5 cm., [ca 10 each] up to 23.5 x 17 cm. for the largest. With a large number of intermediary sizes in between. * The captions are in both English & Italian, and a mix of both languages, carefully identifying the place & person photographed. From the kind of photographs and people in these, its is easy to deduce that this album was likely made by an Italian officer assigned as part of the protective foreign force for the Italian Embassy and diplomatic corps as guards. Assigned to China to continue to protect after the Boxer uprising, they protected both the foreign diplomatic community and their families. A good number of these are of Peking and of their excursions around China. * Visits to Shan-Fan-Shan temple, photos of a friend who was in Seoul [Korea, riding a rickshaw], photos of some American military officers: ie "Lieut. Clark & Capt. Brewster, Commandant of the Peking U.S. Delegation guard Lieutenant. Clark" et al. Polo on the Peking Polo grounds, Pei-Tai-ho [beach], one lovely one of "Casa di mia Isabella; next obviously a photo of the album's maker, and Italian, who freely associated freely with his American counterparts in the military & diplomatic corps. * A lovely pencil sketch of Francesco Rospidliosi, perhaps the creator of this album, dated August 1903. Peking race track grandstand, "Variag" Chemulko [Korea]: view of a belly-up ship in Korea, another dated April 1904 shows various diplomats: "Ministro d'Augustine...Mr. [of] Peking...," dragon boat in Shanghai, three great photos of horse-mounted officers, with caption and date "Warriors... 1904 Peking & Huang Ts'un" and their horses. * January 1905 the album continues with photos of the soldiers in Peking, their pet dog, horses, wagons, Chinese grooms &c. Then a lovely and grand size group photo some in military uniform others in civilian clothes [diplomats ?] most with long boots, dated "March 1905" most with Italian names, except for one penciled at the far right: "Swanton" and two women. Names appear above and below the photo which is 23.5 x 17 cm. Next 2 page show horse racing, honor guards in formation "April 1905," going to church, photos of Peking race horses and their foreign mounts "May 1905." Next pair of pages show a "September 1905 Trip to the Great Wall with Mrs. Brewster & Miss Brewster, at Sha-ho Chinese hotel, Nan-ko Pass, Mrs. David at Peitai-ho," and along the way to the Great wall, with stunning photos of the impressive and grand size "First Gate." Their horse-drawn stage coach-like "wagon" straight out of the old American West ! Photos of three foreign children, "Peking 1905." On the next page, more of the Great Wall excursion: Capt. & Mrs. Brewster, along side the Great Wall & of course photos from on top of the Great wall all nicely dated ! Next set show more on the Great Wall, and "Coming back without Toda and a superb photo of the album compiler mounted on horseback with "doggie" standing at attention ! * The next pair shows Shanghai naval officer and horse wagon, another of two foreign children in a large Jinriksha in Peking 1905, with another of the children in great fur coats. Postcard of the Wuta-su Temple of Seven Pagodas, Peking. More horse-mounted photos, Peking race course. * The next page shows some important and spectacular photos. "Miss Roosevelt [Eleanor] [wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who held that office from 1933 to 1945], Capt. Diconard, Military Attaché [USA], Mr. Rockhill U.S. Minister [please inquire with us to see if we have some of his important books on Tibet in stock], Mr. Cooledge First American Legation, Miss Roosevelt, Chinaman...Peking Sept. 1905. These great people are greeted by a group of Chinese Imperial Mandarins wearing special hats and long white gowns. Another of "Miss Roosevelt, M. Mrs. di Almeida, Capt. Pringle Peking 1905." * Then a larger and quite stunning photo of [Italian] Naval officers...and Americans: "Mrs. Brewster, Commandant Cipriani, Miss Brewster, Guardia della Degarione d'Italia...Capitano Brewster[American]..." all seated before a great Fu Dog for a camera pose. * The album continues, then a rather sad photo of the "Portion of the remains of the French Catholic Mission residence of La Varche & Ma-murdered Nan Chang March 1906" & "Kinghams chapel in background...burnt house is right around March 1906." Adjacent to this is "Ring leader of attack on Kingham's house [Han Chang] March 1906." * Next 2 pages show more ruined church, with "corner of house in which Mr. & Mrs. Kingham and the little daughter Gracie ...they were beaten to death in this corner-blood stains March 1906." Next shows "Four men who conducted murder torture having taken part in the murder of the Kinghams and burning of their mission March 1906" shows four Chinese handcuffed to a steel ring around their necks. We now learn the true level of danger for foreigners in China and the reason for the foreign troops to give protection to the innocents murdered by Chinese. * The next page shows an inspection of the palace by Capt. Lynne, Doct. Dawe, H.M. Tripe at Han Chang March 1906. Arrival of the Chinese delegation for the "Han Chang [murder of foreign missionaries] affair. Next two show a visit to Hankow, the race course, grand stand, Miss Byron, A.W. Cross, another shows 1st Lieut. F.E.K. Strong playing banjo, April 1906. Shipboard travel on the H.M.S. Cadmus. Continue ship travel to Hankow on board the "Calabria" and a nice photo of A.W. Cross, Commissioner, Hankow, another of S.S. Marco Polo at Hankow. Apparently, the military group was now moved to Hankow, where memorial photos were taken aboard ship, with the officers all named around the photo. Next shows "Consulato d'Italia, Hankow August 1906." Other pages show H.M.S. Clarity, the Han river ..."with daddy & Miss Hart June 1906," and other ship and harbor views. Next shows a great French cruiser "Descartes" at Kiukiang, Kiukiang Bund, Commissioner's garden, Festa del Dragones [dragon boats, country walks with Mrs. Lay et al. The album ends with June-August 1906 dated photos rest at "Bungalow" in Kiu Kiang. Where they visited with British administrators and missionaries. * Rare insight to the diplomatic world of foreigners stationed in China at the turn-of-the century. Fascinating primary resource. There are very few albums that cover this rare aspect of life in China from the higher social structure of foreign diplomats and military people. Keen insights to the life and customs of the privileged people. * .

        Atlas der Hautkrankheiten mit Einschluss der wichtigsten venerischen Erkrankungen.

      Berlin & Wien, Urban & Schwarzenberg, 1904, 4, 136 pp. und 155 farbige Abbildungen auf insgesamt 86 ganzseitigen Tafeln, feiner Halbledereinband im Stil der Zeit. ERSTE AUSGABE - VORBILD FÜR ALLE MODERNEN FARBIGEN HAUTATLANTEN!Eduard Jacobi (1862-1915) hat als erster die naturgetreue Wiedergabe der feinen Moulagen durch den Vierfarbendruck nach Farbfotographien mit dem Citochromverfahren, erfunden von Dr. Albert, München, praktiziert. Das Werk von Jacobi ist der erste Hautatlas mit Farbfotographien. Es ist ein Meilenstein auf dem Gebiete der Medizin. Ikonographie. Die Moulagen der Breslauer Sammlung (Neisser), des Hôpital Saint-Louis (gefertigt von Baretta). Berlin (Lesser, Lassar), Brüssel (Bayet), Berlin, Wien (Henning) lieferten die Vorlagen für die instruktiven Abbildungen."Die Bilder sind in der Tat hervorragend. Der Jacobische Atlas ist wohl .. weiter verbreitet gewesen als sämtliche vorher hergestellten Atlanten in der Dermatologie" Ehring, pp.237-238 "Die Tafeln sind fast imstande die Moulagen zu ersetzen... Sie bilden eine ... moderne Fortsetzung der großen Kupferwerke des 19. Jahrhunderts." Goldschmid, p.228 Jacobi, zunächst Assistent bei Neisser an der bekannten Hautklinik in Breslau, wurde 1889 nach Freiburg berufen, wo er mit viel Erfolg die dermatologische Poliklinik aufbaute. Unter seiner Anweisung entstand die große und bedeutende, noch heute bestehende Sammlung von Wachsmoulagen aller Hautaffektionen. Jacobi ist bemüht, mit diesem Atlas "Ordnung in die Vielfalt der Erscheinungen zu bringen, nachdem man angefangen hatte, die Haut unter pathologisch-anatomischen Gesichtspunkten als Organ zu betrachten" NDB, X, p.235f.
