        [Yearbook]: Oak Leaves: Class of 1905 Baptist University for Women

      Raleigh, North Carolina: Baptist University for Women. 1905. Oblong quarto. Maroon cloth. 88pp. Illustrated by the Art Class of the Baptist University for Women. Printed in black and red. Very good with a cracked front hinge, rubbing and modest wear at the corners. A yearbook for the graduating class of the Baptist University for Women in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1905, now Meredith College. The brainchild of Baptist Thomas Meredith who pioneered the idea of providing "a first-rate course of female education," the Baptist Female University opened its doors in 1899 after delays due to the Civil War delegated the goal of higher female education in the South. This was only the second year Oak Leaves was published, the tradition began in 1904 after the name of the college was changed from the Baptist Female University. The first section of the yearbook displays the different classes in descending order accompanied with a photo of each of the women, a class history, and a class poem. The sections thereafter show the activities, sports, and clubs at the university, each with a group picture of the participants printed as glossy plates. These include the Y.W.C.A., Glee Club, and literary societies, among others; as well as the basketball, baseball, and tennis teams all in uniform. One club named the Spinsters' Club is aptly illustrated with line drawings of cats in some turn-of-the-century version of a "crazy cat lady" joke with the motto, "of all the sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are there: 'where are the men'." 1905 marked the first year that the student body established a student government, one of the first such in the South. An interesting and typographically attractive yearbook demonstrating the nascency of women's education in the early 20th Century. .

Cloth a. bit spotted, some wear along outer front joint, scattered foxing to. text block, a very good copy. A very scarce book. (#151869). First edition. "Supernatural romance set in eighteenth century Cornwall. A child conceived by witchcraft is in rapport with the sea-folk who dwell down among the black weeds. Strangely evocative imagery within a fairly conventional plot of a maiden seduced and abandoned." - Robert Knowlton. John Ruyle comments: "Changeling woman born of the sea returns from death as mermaid to reclaim her love. Witchcraft, haunted seaweed, ancient legends dating back to Baal worshippers. All in all very good, though overwritten." Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Day (1963) or Reginald (1978; 1992).

The same plates were used for the present issue; only the title and first page of music (p. 2) were altered. On p. 2, the Durand copyright notice and plate number replace those of Fromont. In addition, the position of the dedication and contents pages are reversed.First performed on April 30, 1902 at the Opéra- Comique in Paris under the baton of André Messager (1853-1929), one of the dedicatees. The other, Georges Hartmann (1843-1900), was an executive of the publisher Fromont. "Debussy finished a first version of the opera in 1895. Several attempts were made to get Pelléas et Mélisande staged. but these foundered. At last, on 3 May 1901, the director of the Opéra- Comique, Albert Carré, gave [Debussy] a written undertaking to put on Pelléas. Preparations were held up by Maeterlinck, who wanted his mistress Georgette Leblanc to take the role of Mélisande. In spite of public demonstrations at the dress rehearsal and first performance. and a chilly reception from several of the critics, the work caught on and made a powerful impression on the musical world at large." François Lesure in Grove Music Online. Folio. Full publisher's light green cloth with decorative titling gilt to upper and spine. 1f.

        Thirty-Five Years in the East.

      Calcutta: The "Bangabasi" Office,, 1905. Adventures, Discoveries, Experiments, and Historical Sketches, relating to the Punjab and Cashmere; in Connection with Medicine, Botany, Pharmacy, &c. Octavo (211 × 125 mm). Modern "native" black half sheep, green cloth boards, title gilt direct to the spine, gilt rolls to the spine and corner edges, original front wrapper (stained, old repairs) bound in. Portrait frontispiece and 15 other plates, 6 of them folding, and a folding map. Externally bright, contents browned and with a series of worm-tracks through the block, but not in any way fragile, about very good. First published in German in Vienna under the title, Früchte aus dem Morgenlande oder Reise-Erlebnisse, nebst naturhistorisch-medizinischen Erfahrungen in 1851, translated into English the following year, this uncommon Calcutta reprint is apparently the first such. Honigberger (1795-1869), a doctor trained in both conventional and, his preferred, homeopathic, medicine, born in Krostadt in Romania, left Transylvania in 1815 and travelled though the Middle East, Egypt, Arabia, Persia and on to India. He arrived in Lahore in 1829 and, having treated Ranjit Singh's favourite horse for an ulcerated leg, gained the confidence of the Maharaja, becoming court physician, as well as being put in charge of the gunstock manufactory and gunpowder mills, a facsimile plate of the document of his appointment to these varied positions is included. Honigberger gives "his observations about Ranjit Singh, Maharaja Kharak Signh, Naunihal Singh, Sher Singh, Dhian Singh, Chand Kaur, Dalip Singh, Hira Singh, political changes, bloodshed, role of Akalis, faaticism of Jallah, Baba Var Singh, battle of Sobraon, rile of Teja Singh, Lehna Singh and Sikh battles. He also told many interesting day-to-day happenings of the Sikh State" (Chopra). Honigberger also provides much on medical practices in West, South and Central Asia. The plates include a hakim, or Mohammedan doctor, an attar or druggist, a still, a "B'hangee, or Hemp-Plant Drinker", and a "Faqueer Postee, or Poppy-Head Drinker", together with portraits of the members of the durbar or ruler's household, and an interesting map of the railway route from Bokhara to Orenburg. An unconventional, but painstaking observer, his account is a highly appealing curiosity amongst the more established account of the Punjabi court at the time.

Oblong folio (19 X 13 inches). Rare Belle Epoque Sporting work with a nostalgic letter from the artist. Charming belle epoque sporting work on the hunt of the Château du Francport, one of the oldest and most prestigious in France. The album of watercolors by Roque includes hunting scenes and portraits of the master - the marquis de l'Aigle - and principal members, as well as guests and followers in their carriages (and early motorcars), and the hunt costume of grey and amaranth; the final plate is a view of the Château and a recumbent hound with a large Aigle monogram. The hunt was disbanded with the onset of war in the Oise valley in August 1914; the Château du Francport is situated in the forest of Compiègne, a few hundred meters from the site of the Armistice.Loosely inserted is a 3 pp. autograph letter from the artist, signed ("P. Roque"), dated 4 November 1946. Writing from Montifray, Beaumont la Ronce, Indre et Loire, to an unnamed friend of long standing, Roque apologizes for writing in Fench ("plus à mon aise dans ma langue paternelle, et puis peu importe langue puisque vous les parlez à peu pres toutes"), discussing Haïphong, in Indochina, "ce pays que nous avons connu si tranquille", and recalling earlier days and discussing his circumstances in the aftermath of the Second World War, which he spent in the family château in Indre et Loire. Roque was the nephew of Victor and Xavier Roque, brothers who built a shipping and manufacturing fortune in French Indochina. Thiébaud 790-791 ("tiré à petit nombre; rare").

        The Drift of Buddhism From India to the Mongols and Thibet.

      London: Robert Banks and son, 1905., 1905. Octavo. Bound in paper covers; originally priced at 6d. With a coloured folding map showing the distribution of world religions. The paper cover is somewhat worn, with some small tears to joints, also somewhat tanned. Largely free from spotting, though with some rust spots where the staples have rusted. The coloured map has been neatly repaired along one fold with archival tape. This pamphlet provides an insight into early perspectives on the newly explored Tibetan plateaux, and speculates about the history of the spread of Buddhism across the Asian continent. Fraser was very interested in psychical research, and is principally known for his "Darkness and Light in the Land of Egypt", which examined wellsprings of invisible energy in the physical world. His view on the success and spread of Buddhism is as partial as one might expect in this period, and, though he cites a number of divergent scholarly views, Fraser argues that 'Buddhism and Braminism are essentially the same belief'. He similarly believes the 'sacred literature of the Hindoos' to be of 'comparatively recent date', and that Buddhism and Druidism share the same ancestral roots. This partiality is further evinced in the map of world religions, which divides the world into Christianity, Buddhism, Mohammedism, and pagan religions. However, Fraser expresses concern that Buddhism is 'waking up', and will soon be a force in the world, as it was when Gengis Khan was coerced by a 'secret posse of priestly advisors'. According to Fraser, half the world's population is Buddhist, so this constitutes a very clear and present danger. It is unclear whether this account was written before the Boxer Rebellion, as no mention is made of the anti-Christian sentiment displayed by the Yihetuan, nor to the specifics of the current Manchu governing dynasty, including the Guangxu Emperor or the Empress Dowager Cixi.

      [Various places, 1905. Most pieces pasted into albums. Albums are quarto and folio in size. Largest album lacking spine and front board, spine deteriorated on second album, leaves loose in both. Some light wear to leaves in all four albums, some heavier than others.

Large group of primarily American trade cards, advertisements, and other ephemeral printed items, most printed in chromolithographic full color. The collection spans a variety of printing firms, in various locales, including Boston, New York, New Bedford, Philadelphia, and Buffalo, among others. In addition to chromolithographs of flowers and other ornamental scenes, there are trade cards advertising a wide variety of products: corsets, soap, thread, medicines and remedies, early appliances and household goods, shoes, furniture, dry goods, cigars, and many more. Most of the advertisements and trade cards are aimed at a female audience, relying on the desires of the burgeoning Victorian middle class. Some show African Americans in extreme caricatures, notably a series of cards for cigars. A significant archive of ephemeral items, neatly collected and grouped.

Bel exemplaire. Bel exemplaire de cette somptueuse plaquette à la gloire de la bénédictine de l'abbaye de Fécamp. Nombreuses illustrations photographiques en noir dans le texte et hors texte. Ce très intéressant et magnifique ouvrage sur la liqueur ?Bénédictine? contient les chapitres suivants: L?abbaye de Fécamp / Le musée de la Bénédictine / La distillerie de la Bénédictine.La fabuleuse histoire de la Bénédictine commence à la Renaissance lorsqu'un moine vénitien, Dom Bernardo Vincelli, crée à l'Abbaye de Fécamp un élixir à base de 27 plantes et épices originaires des 4 coins du monde.Très apprécié à la cour du roi François 1er, l'élixir devenu célèbre est produit par les moines bénédictins jusqu'à la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Mais, vers 1789, dans la tourmente de la Révolution française, la recette manque d'être perdue à jamais? Le manuscrit du XVIème siècle contenant la formule de l'élixir est acheté par un notable de Fécamp en 1791. Ignorant le secret qu'il contient, il le range dans sa bibliothèque et l'oublie? En 1863, Alexandre Le Grand, lointain descendant de ce dernier, tombe par hasard sur le grimoire et y découvre la recette secrète. Aussitôt, il décide de la déchiffrer afin d'élaborer cette mystérieuse liqueur. A force d'acharnement, il réussit à la recréer; il la modernise et la baptise "Bénédictine". La liqueur devient rapidement très populaire : en 1873, la production atteint près de 150 000 bouteilles. Compte tenu de son succès, Alexandre Le Grand décide de créer la société Bénédictine SA, en juin 1876, au capital de 2 200 000 francs. En 1882, Alexandre Le Grand choisit de faire construire à Fécamp un lieu unique pour abriter la distillerie : un Palais-Musée. C'est dans cet endroit extraordinaire que l'on élabore encore aujourd'hui la fameuse liqueur. ( images et les planches h.-t. montrent, par exemple, de très belles prises photographiques de l?architecture du château (l?abbaye), les intérieurs du musée, des bouteilles, des alambics, le laboratoire, des ouvriers et des ouvrières (des enfants également) au travail dans la salle d?étiquetage et dans la scierie mécanique pour la fabrication des caisses.Please notify before visiting to see a book.

Comprehensive markup in pencil in the same hand with some interspersed signs in red and blue crayon. Literals mostly in German (some in shorthand), occasionally in Italian; the annotations to the rehearsal letters of the Dance of the Seven Veils ("a, bi, tschi, di, e, äffe, dschi, akka, illungo, älle...") are makeshift phonetic renditions of the Italian pronunciation of the letters of the alphabet by a native speaker of German. Notes in the same hand to lower right corner of final page of music: “Wisbdn. 5. III. 63,” “Wisbd. 3.I.69,” and “Venezia Wiesbd. 3.II. 69.” Binding slightly worn, rubbed and bumped; joint cracked.

Very rare; never offered for sale. Trenner 215. Müller von Asow I, p. 352. Hirsch II, 903. Sonneck p. 157. It is clear that the markup is by a German or Austrian conductor; we have, however, been unable to identify this previous owner. "With the colourful, chromatic 'Salome' he found a new, modernist voice for the stage, one that resonated throughout a Europe preoccupied with the image of the sensual femme fatale. Within a year of its 1905 Dresden première, this 'succès de scandale' had been performed in six German cities as well as Graz, Prague and Milan, and its fame quickly spread throughout Europe and the USA."

Pacific 80 (1968) pp.51-56. - FIRST EDITION and presentation copy of the very rare offprint with "Überreicht vom Verfasser" printed on front wrapper upper right. In 1905 Hertzsprung published the article "Zur Strahlung der Sterne", unfortunately in the - astronomical and academically - obscure journal "Zeitschrift für Wissenschaftliche Photographie, Photophysik und Photochemie" in which he positioned his observations and the results in tables, not in figures and diagrams. In his paper Zur Strahlung der Sterne (on the radiation of stars), "Hertzsprung showed, ?rst, that stars with very sharp absorption lines in Antonia Maury's classi?cation system were more luminous than others - a discovery that became the foundation of the method of stellar parallax - and, second, that stars could be classi?ed in two series, the main sequence (in modern parlance) and the high-luminosity giant stars when plotted in a diagram of intrinsic luminosity vs. temperature. Because of the appearance of these results in a photography journal, it had little impact in the astronomical community, and it was not until the same relationship had been discovered by Henry Norris Russell, several years later, that Hertzsprung's discoveries were recognized. The diagram became known as the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram." (K. van Berkel et al., The History of Science in the Netherlands, 1999, p.460). Hertzsprung's work on the radiation of stars was reprinted in Oswalds Klassiker der exakten Wissenschaften, Vol. 255. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Wien. Hölder. 1905.. Zweite, gänzlich umgearbeitete und vermehrte Auflage. 2 Bände. Lex. -8°. XIV, 640 S. mit 357 Abb.; S. 641-1319. HLn. d. Zt. mit gold geprägtem Rückentitel (Bibl.-Signet unten).; 2. Constantin von Monakow (* 1853 auf dem Gut Bobrezewo, Gouvernement Wologda - 1930 Zürich), russisch-schweizerischer Neurologe und Neuropathologe. 1885 eröffnete er eine Praxis in Zürich und wurde als erster in der Schweiz für Neurologie und Neuroanatomie habilitiert. Im folgenden Jahr eröffnete er mit eigenen Mitteln eine neurologische Poliklinik und ein hirnanatomisches Labor. 1894 ernannte ihn die Universität Zürich zum ausserordentlichen Professor. 1910 schenkte er seine Poliklinik und sein Labor dem Kanton Zürich, leitete beide aber bis 1927 weiter. Monakow prägte den Begriff Diaschisis. Das Monakow-Bündel ist nach ihm benannt. *** "Die zweite Auflage der Gehirnpathologie hat in den meisten Abschnitten eine völlige, dem heutigen Stande unseres Wissens angemessene Umarbeitung und eine bedeutende Erweiterung des Textes erfahren. Auch die Zahl der Abbildungen, respektive Schemata ist um zirka 150 vermehrt worden. In ganz neuer Gestalt erscheint die Bearbeitung der Anatomie des Großhirns, der allgemeinen Histo-Architektonik, der allgemeinen und speziellen Physiologie des Gehirns, der allgemeinen Pathologie des Zentralnervensystems (insbesondere der sekundären Degenerationen) und dann die physio-psychologische Einleitung zur Aphasie. Einzelne Kapitel über die Herdsymptome (Hemiplegie, Heminanästhesie, posthemiplegische Reizerscheinungen), sowie über die Lokalisation im Großhirn (corticale Sprachstörungen) wurden ebenfalls neu geschrieben. Bedeutende Textänderungen wird der Leser auch in den Kapiteln: Lokalisation im Kleinhirn und zentrale Störungen in der Innervation der Augenmuskeln und an andren Orten finden." (Monakow). - *** Aus der großen Reihe rein neurologischer Arbeiten sei insbesondere an die zweite Auflage der 'Gehirnpathologie' erinnert. Schon in diesem Werk des damals Zweiundfünfzigjährigen tritt ein für Monakow immer mehr charakteristischer geistiger Wesenszug neben der Darstellung exakter anatomischer und pathologisch-anatomischer Verhältnissezutage. Ich denke an seine außerordentliche Gabe, noch unerklärliche neuropathologische Phänomene durch geniale Intution dem Verständnis näherzubringen. So hat er schon damals in der zweiten Auflage seines Werkes den Begriff der Diaschisis eingeführt; damit sollte, um nur ein Beispiel zu erwähnen, ein scheinbar paradoxes Phänomen, wie Wechsel von schlaffer zu spastischer Lähmung, dem Verständnis nähergebracht werden. In der Tat kann eine plötzlich einsetzende Blutung von nicht allzu großer Intensität im Bereich der ihr zugeordneten Gebiete, also unter umständen weit ab vom Ort der Blutung, eine zunächst rein schlaffe Lähmung hervorrufen, die erst nach Stunden oder gar Tagen spastischen Erscheinungen weicht. Es handelt sich hierbei im Sinne des Physiologen Hess, der noch gleichzeitig mit Monakow in Zürich wirkte, um eine Art Schutzvorgang, wobei die "Diaschisis" gleichsam dem Krankheitsherd und so dem geschädigten Hirn Ruhe und damit Heilungsmöglichkeiten gibt."
