        Something About My Trip To Europe

      Sukkur: Printed at the "Victoria" Printing Press. 1905. First. First edition. Quarter cloth and printed flexible card covers. 119pp. One of 500 copies printed. Text in English. A few smudges on the boards and a few page corners creased, but a remarkably nice, very good or better copy of a fragile volume. Impressions of a young Indian gentleman from Sind visiting Europe for the first time in the form of a diary. Written in a lively and engaging style as travel literature for friends rather than as a tedious "guidebook", full of firsthand descriptions of the places and fellow passengers he encounters en route from Bombay to Karachi by way of Paris, London, Edinburgh, Lucerne, and Milan. Their is heavy emphasis on his time in the U.K. where he compares the English as overlords on the subcontinent and as hosts in their own land, including their attitudes towards race and morality, including some poignant observations on their behavior and customs: "In Sind we see very little of the English people, neither do we know them nor do they know us. We learn that some of the Anglo Indians are very haughty, overbearing and do not hesitate to insult natives of high rank or position. We are told that they consider it below their dignity to shake hands with natives. They would not like to travel with them in the same railway carriages if they could help it. ...In England the British people take a pride in being kind to strangers, who happen to be in their land. They consider it mean to be otherwise and they feel it their duty to resent any unmannerly conduct that may be shown towards strangers by the rude and rough who are to be found in the streets. Anglo Indians in England are foremost in paying attention to Indians. They take a great interest in their welfare. Some Anglo Indians have greeted me so enthusiastically as if I was their long departed friend. I was received on equal footing with brotherly feelings." (p106). OCLC locates no copies in the U.S., and a single copy overall, at the British Library. In 1932 Mahtabsing also wrote a catechism of the Sikh religion (also located in a single copy, in Canada). .

        The Honest Farmer from Arkansaw on a Lark Seein' the West

      1905. Original red cloth, gilt-stamped lettering on spine, gilt-stamped lettering within blind-stamped decoration on front, 344, [1] pp. incl. frontispiece, illustrated with numerous plates from photographs, included in pagination, n.publ,, privately published. Spine ends & corners lightly bumped, spine very lightly sunned, two small bean-sized faint light spots on front, a similar more evident spot on back, edges faded, first three leaves are pulled at the top and partially broken from the gutter else text is bright, crisp & clean. A rare and quite interesting account of Oklahoma and the West at the dawn of the 20th century, told in a series of letters from Burt James Milam to his wife Mollie. Milam traveled to Fort Sill, Indian Territory, in July, 1901, anxious to lay claim to some of the homestead lands. Not satisfied with immediate settlement, however, Milam continued his travels through the West, visiting Corpus Christi, Galveston, Boise (spelled Boyce), St. Louis, and many other locales. His interaction with his fellow travelers, residents of the areas visited, the Native American inhabitants, and others are superbly recorded, as are his observations of American culture at a time of profound change. His keen sense of history adds great depth to his descriptions, and the marvelous selection of photographs brings them alive. These include many of American Indians; Green River, Wyoming; a bull-fighting stadium in Juarez, Old Mexico; San Pedro Creek in San Antonio; etc. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Privately Printed.

He was educated at the universities of Berlin, Erlangen and Freiburg im Breisgau. He was conferred doctor of medicine in Freiburg in 1897. The following year he came to Dresden to work with the pathologist Christian Georg Schmorl (1861-1932) in the St. Joseph-Hospital, but later moved on to the surgeon Friedrich Cramer (1847-1903) in Wiesbaden, where he decided to devote himself to the roentgenology. In 1903 he settled as a radiologist in Wiesbaden, and soon became one of the best known physicians in this new speciality. - Köhler was concerned with bringing together the two disciplines og radiology and surgery, and published a work on this theme. He also published on tuberculosis of the lungs as well as on radiologically recognisable diseases of the skeleton. He introduced technical modifications to achieve improved X-ray visualisation of the heart. - In 1905 he was a co-founder of the Deutsche Röntgengesellschaft in Berlin. During April 13/14, 1912, he was president of the 8th Roentgen Congress in Berlin In 1913 he was appointed Professor h.c. in Wiesbaden. In 1933 he received the Hermann Rieder medal (named for Hermann Rieder, 1858-1932). His works are among the most important of the first decades of radiology. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Paris: A. Ferroud, 1905. No. IV OF 10 COPIES printed on Whatman paper and initialed by the publisher (from a total issue of 670) n. Hardcover. 318 x 229 mm (12 1/2 x 9"). 3 p.l., iv, 334 pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. IV OF 10 COPIES printed on Whatman paper and initialed by the publisher (from a total issue of 670). ELEGANT DEEP BLUE STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY GEORGES MERCIER (stamp-signed on front doublure), covers with multiple-fillet gilt frame, wide raised bands decorated in blind and gilt, spine compartments featuring a fleuron centerpiece enclosed by multiple gilt rules and ornamental cornerpieces, gilt titling, POLISHED CALF DOUBLURES with a frame composed of 11 gilt fillets, navy watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. In the original morocco-trimmed, leather-lined chemise and matching slipcase. WITH 81 WOOD-ENGRAVED ILLUSTRATIONS by C. Chessa after drawings by Alfred de Richemont (comprising 20 full-page plates, a title vignette, and six head- and tailpieces, all with additional proofs in two states). A Large Paper Copy. With the original prospectus bound in at rear. Verso to final blank with red Oriental "chop" stamp of previous owner "Jean." IN ESSENTIALLY MINT CONDITION. This is a substantial binding of considerable beauty and dignity executed by Georges Mercier, who studied and worked with his father, the famous binder and gilder Émile-Philippe Mercier (the binding is signed "G Mercier S[uccesseu]r de son pere" ["Successor of his father"]). The younger Mercier joined his father's workshop in 1898 and took over as head of the firm at his father's death 12 years later. He had big shoes to fill, as Émile-Philippe was considered, at least by Prideaux, to be the finest gilder of his time, but the present volume is an indication that the son could produce notable work that manifested a refined sense of design as well as unerring execution. "Madame Bovary" is the first and by far the most celebrated novel published by Gustave Flaubert (1821-80). The relatively simple plot tells the story of a provincial physician's wife who lives more extravagantly than her means allow and who embarks on a series of adulterous affairs in reaction to a life suffused with mundanity. The novel led to an obscenity trial which resulted in Flaubert's acquittal and a predictable inflation of public interest in the work. It has become a novel of very widespread influence, being generally considered the font from which modern literary realism has flowed. Our elegant binding is a suitable covering for the present deluxe, strictly limited version of this edition, which is printed on high-quality paper and with its plates present in multiple states.

        SIMPLICISSIMUS jargang 10 (dal n, 1 di april 1905 al num. 52 di mars 1906) Con la legatura anonima mz. pelle marrone, Munchen, Langen Albert, 1905

      Unico volume rilegato cm. 28,5 x 38, numero pag. per fasc. irregolari. totale annata pp. 628, comprese le numerose di pubblicità sia a colori che in b / n. Sul piatto posteriore tracce d'uso. In questa annata sono inseriti 52 numeri del "Bleibat des Simplicissimus" di 4 - 6 facciate cadauno, e sono veicoli di bella pubblicità e di alcune caricature in b / n. La quantità delle pagine rende questa annata particolarmente corposa Non manca alcun numero e la raccolta è in condizioni più che buone.. Il famoso stile di SIMPLICISSIMUS, divenuto leggendario, aveva un taglio critico - satirico verso il potere e la vita borghese, ma sono interessanti anche gli articoli letterari, poesie e racconti. In questa annata è assai interessante uno scritto di THOMAS MANN alla pagina 62, ed un'altro di suo fratello Heinrich Mann alla pag. 508. Risulta che Thomas Mann (premio Nobel per la letteratura 1929) abbia collaborato alla rivista già dal 1896. Fondamentali poi contributi artistici con gli straordinari e graffianti disegni a colori dei grandi disegnatori ed animatori Olaf Gulbranson (riconosciuto come uno dei più grandi illustratori della sua epoca ed anima del giornale), Heine (il creatore del famoso cagnone), Bruno Paul, Reznicef, Schulz, Eduard Thony, Engl, Steinlen e tanti altri. Ognuna delle centinaia di figure. lancia messaggi e simboli e può essere considerata come un editoriale od un articolo di fondo. Le immagini hanno anche un valore artistico indiscutibile.

        Watercolor Album of European Views

      - N.d., 1905-1932. 43 leaves, with 86 watercolors of different views from England, France, Italy, the Lowlands, Switzerland, all done by a very accomplished hand during the first third of the 20th century. The views of both panoramic and close-up, natural scenery and architectural, with bridges, castles, cottages aplenty. The artist was concerned with capturing the beautiful and rendering it so -- this was not the effort of a modernist cynic wallowing in irony, the sordid, the underside of things -- and so there is a dream-like quality to the art. That all was done by one artist contributes to the satisfying cohesion of the album. The images might not individually be particular original in their treatment, but that doesn't negate the sensual, sensate appeal of them, and the effort that each image represented speaks to a level of appreciation for sights that is impossible to achieve in our era of commodified tourism. This kind of album is an affirmation of the rewards to be garnered on the Grand Tour of Yore. The pictures are not signed other than a handful with the initials "KP" and dated from 1905 to 1932. There can be no question that they are all by the same hand, and that KP probably had it in mind to create a cohesive album like this. The album itself is strictly utilitarian in its design, with screws used to bind the leaves together, and the boards covered with an office log leatherette which is now rubbed and worn. The leaves are of a near card stiffness, though, which is well-suited for the mounting of the watercolors thereon. The oblong album measures 26 by 21 cm, 10 by 8.5 inches, and the watercolors are of varying size but typically cover a little more than half the surface.

III. 7. Juni 1907: Nielsen berichtet von familiären Problemen und der schweren Krankheit seiner Frau. Er bedankt sich, dass Harder Schillings aufgesucht habe, sei sich aber nicht sicher, wie er jetzt handeln solle und welches Werk er Schillings zeigen solle. Er denke dabei vor allem an &quote;Maskerade&quote; [Oper, 1904-06, UA 1906] und an &quote;Sövnen&quote; [das Chorwerk &quote;Der Schlaf&quote; 1903-1904]. IV. 2. Dezember 1907: Nielsen dankt Harder für den Versuch, seine Musik in Deutschland bekannt zu machen, obwohl er wenig optimistisch erscheint, weil er überzeugt davon sei, dass den Deutschen seine Musik als zu hart, trocken und uninteressant vorkommen möge. Nielsen bittet um die Adresse von Schillings, damit er diesem seine &quote;Symphonische Suite&quote; und &quote;Saul og David&quote; (Saul und David, 1898-1901, UA 1902) senden könne. V. o. O. u. D.: Der undatierte, möglicherweise für eine Übersetzung vorgesehene Brief ist ein Briefentwurf an Max von Schillings (&quote;Hochgeehrter Herr Generalmusikdirektor!&quote;) und bezieht sich auf das von Schillings zugesandte &quote;jugendliche und herzliche Streichquartett&quote; und seine schönen Lieder, die er bereits studiert habe. Nielsen sei begeistert von &quote;Moloch&quote; (von Schillings 1906 vollendete musikalische Tragödie), die alle anderen Werke erblassen lasse. Er schwärmt von der Struktur, der Ernsthaftigkeit und Strenge, die er in dieses Werk gebracht habe. Weiter schreibt er, dass er hoffe, dass das Kopenhagener Publikum in diesen Genuss käme und merkte, dass das deutsche Musikdrama nicht mit Richard Wagner beendet wurde. - Die Briefe sind teilweise publiziert in &quote;Carl Nielsens Breve, Gylderdal, 1954&quote;. - Beiliegt: Kabinettfotografie Nielsens (Brustbild im Halbprofil nach links, 10,5 x 16,5. Photographie: Fred Riise, Kopenhagen, ca. 1909. - 1892 entstand Nielsens erste Sinfonie. 1898 der &quote;Hymnus Amoris&quote;, eine Liebeserklärung an seine Frau. 1902 debütierte Nielsen bei der Uraufführung seiner Oper &quote;Saul und David&quote; als Dirigent. Im gleichen Jahr erschien seine zweite Sinfonie &quote;Die vier Temperamente&quote;. 1905 kündigte Nielsen seine Stelle als Violinist, wirkte aber als Dirigent noch 1906-14 am Königlichen Theater, danach beim Musikverein &quote;Musikforeningen&quote;. 1906 hatte die heitere Oper &quote;Maskerade&quote; Premiere. Doch erst die 1912 uraufgeführte dritte Sinfonie &quote;Sinfonia espansiva&quote;, &quote;bei der der gewaltige Schwung des 1. Satzes von einer rhythmischen Sprengladung in Gang gesetzt und in einer Themenentwicklung von vorwärtsstürmender Kraft weitergeführt wird; es ist der genialste Satz, den Nielsen geschaffen hat&quote; [MGG IX, 1516] und sein Violinkonzert aus dem gleichen Jahr brachten ihm größere Anerkennung auch im Ausland.

        Die Schädelbasis im Röntgenbilde.

      . Röfo Erg., 11. - (Archiv und Atlas der norm. u. path. Anatomie in typischen Röntgenbildern. Hrsg. von Albers-Schönberg). - Hamburg, Lucas Gräfe & Sillem, 1905, 4°, 6 orig. photograph. Tafeln, 6 Skizzenblätter, 30 Abb., OHLnBd.. Artur Schüller was born in Brünn, Czechoslovakia, when Gregor (Johann) Mendel (1822-1884) was still experimenting with plants in the garden of the Augustinian monastery Königskloster in the town. His father was a specialist in otolaryngology, and a friend of Adam Politzer (1835-1920). He was outstanding at school, especially in the humanities and music, and he entered medicine in Vienna aged 17. He graduated M.D. in 1899 with the highest honours, being awarded a prize by Franz Joseph at a special audience, which had only been given twice during the emperor's 60 year reign. He subsequently worked at the Allgemeines Krankenhaus and the psychiatric clinic. He was habilitated for neurology and psychiatry at Vienna in 1907, becoming titular ausserordentlicher professor in 1914. - Guido Holzknecht (1872-1931) invited him to join his X-ray department and rapidly he fulfilled the promise of his undergraduate days by his careful analysis of X-ray examinations of the skull, which set out fundamental principles still forming the basis of this examination. In 1910 Schüller performed experiments on dogs that suggested the practicality of cordotomy for pain relief. He also suggested the transphenoidal nasal approach for pituitary operations. In 1909, aged 35, he was appointed university professor in Vienna, where his colleagues were his former teachers Theodor Billroth (1829-1894), Carl Wilhelm Hermann Nothnagel (1841-1905), Hans Finsterer (1877-1955), Adam Politzer, Richard von Krafft-Ebing (1840-1902) and Julius Wagner Jauregg (1857-1940). - When World War I came Schüller did much medical work for the army, and wrote a paper describing a patient with Hand-Schüller disease in 1915. Following the war, Vienna changed from a city of prosperity to one of poverty and in the hyperinflation that followed he found great difficulty in making ends meet. In order to eke out a living, he undertook postgraduate classes in private on X-ray diagnosis of disorders of the skull, ear, nose, and throat and made a collection of almost every disorder known of the skull, which unfortunately was lost when he left Vienna. He wrote over 300 papers, monographs and books, and in one described the disorder osteoporosis circumscripta cranii, which is an early stage of Paget's disease of the skull and may be detected before any symptomatology. - With the rise of Hitler, Schüller left Vienna hurriedly in 1938, leaving most of his possessions behind. His two sons were prevented at the last moment from leaving. After a short time in England he went to Australia where, at the age of 65, he commenced to build up a career. He worked in the X-ray department of St. Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, where Dr. John O'Sullivan, who had been a pupil of his in Vienna, was an associate. He was much sought after as an X-ray consultant and received X-rays from all over the country for his opinion. During the latter years he was troubled by depression and developed Parkinson's disease. His two sons died in a concentration camp. -cf whonamedit
