        Las Guerras con las Tribus Yaqui y Mayo del Estado de Sonora

      Tipografia del Departamento de Estado Mayor, Mexico City 1905 - 342+ix with fold out map. Large Quarto (13" x 8 1/4") issued in original wrappers. First edition. There is an abundance of documentation concerning the history of indigenous populations of Mexico prior to the arrival of the Spaniards. These documents were constructed from information about the groups with whom the Spaniards had the most contact and focus on the life and governance of these groups. In comparison, relatively little is known of the hunters and gatherers that for most of the colonial period occupied a marginal position relative to the central political scheme. These peoples, located in the arid part of America, were relegated to colonization by religious missionary orders. The Spanish colonization machine with its array of bureaucrats and administrators was first established in the Mesoamerican region because of its geo-political importance as a central area for decision-making and development of the colonial society. What is commonly known as the Aztec Empire consisted of 38 provinces which paid tribute, and the Empire was, in reality, a rather loose confederation of city-states with different political systems and situations. This confederation of city-states encompassed many different ethnic groups and a diverse array of languages. The cities in the central region consisted of primarily Nahuatl and Otomi speaking populations. To the northeast were the Huastecos, Totonacas, and Mazatecos. To the southeast the Mixtecos, Zapotecos. To the south the Mayas. To the southeast the Tlapanecas and Cuitlatecas. To the west the Mazahuas and the Matlazincas. The consolidation of this confederation of cities and settlements by the Mexicans who exercised their hegemony over these varied peoples, created a class of leaders of which the Tlatoani or Supreme Lord, warriors, and functionaries were a part; a class of businessmen and traders, the pochtecas, who, at the time of the colonization, were beginning to enjoy increasing importance and privilege. The campesinos (or countrymen), whether Nahuatl, Zapotec, or Mixtec, continued their life at the margin of these city-states in their apogee. The campesinos or macehualtzin were all members of a community, with usufruct rights to the land where they established their home and an agricultural plot. The territorial space was called the calpulli or what we now know as indigenous communal area or settlement. This calpulli was characterized by a sociopolitical organization based on a definition of territory, barrio or sometimes kinship. The Spanish colonization produced a phenomenon that on one hand tended to blur the cultural differences of the ethnic groups, while on the other contributing to the persistence of the same groups. These managed to retain their own identities yet with a colonial overlay that gave them an identity imposed by the colonizer (religious, or subjects to the king, mine of hacienda workers. etc.). With independence the indigenous peoples acquired the same liberties and rights as other segments of the population. Nevertheless, in many cases they were still subject to special laws and rules that kept them in a marginal and inferior situation relative to the white mestizo population. With the expansion of the agricultural and livestock frontier, and the development of capitalist relations of production in the field (salaried labor, production of commercial crops, capital investments in agrarian property, and the growth of infrastructure in the rural areas) the indigenous populations suffered a massive despoiling and appropriation of their territories, and many of them were exiled or resettled in less hospitable areas. This was the origin of the emergence of the great latifundios and haciendas, that established themselves in the territories belonging to the indigenous people and in which the indigenous populations were incorporated in systems of servants or clientage (peones acacillados). The exploitation of indigenous labor and the takeover of their lands generated c [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Colorado Outing

      Smith-Brooks Press, Denver, CO 1905 - Gilt-stamped maroon leather, 12mo; 23pp; illustrated with title page photo, decorative initials and 5 text drawings. "This is the story of a hunting, fishing and prospecting trip in the summer of 1871 from a camp on the North Saint Vrain River near Long's Peak, Colorado. It is an exciting story and well told"-Thomas Streeter. This was one of the few sporting titles in the Streeter collection (#4127). There seems to be some uncertainty about the author's name. Streeter refers to Joseph A. Addison and the OCLC lists Joseph A[ddison] Thatcher as the author in the 8 copies they note. The printed initials, J.A.T., appear under the title on page one. A rather uncommon book and missed by Phillips, Wetzel, Bruns, Riling and Heller in their bibliographies. This copy is in very good condition with a small quarter inch chip to the crown of the spine and light wear to the extremities. The hinges are lightly cracked but still very tight. Also, this copy is inscribed and dated in year of publication and initialed , rather illegibly, by either "J.A.A." or "J.A.T." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Foyers, The Society for the Propagation of Religious Truth,, 1905–7. 3 volumes in 1, octavo. Original limp white buckram, titles to upper board gilt, top edge gilt others uncut. Printed on India paper. Some spotting to endleaves, cloth rather grubby. Very good. First Edition, Sole Printing. With the ownership inscription of one Raymond Radclyffe on the front free endpaper, underneath which is Crowley's later signed presentation inscription, "I am sad, for he [Radclyffe] was one of the very best that ever lived; a City Editor straight as Euclid before Einstein attacked him, and one of the best literary critics and friends in the world. But now I am glad, for Collin Brooks to whom I give this copy (which is not mine to give) has restored me to that 'too much love of living' which I thought I had packed. Aleister Crowley 26-5-42 EV". A spectacular piece of early Crowley egomania. Radclyffe was a journalist and editor of whom Crowley wrote, "Raymond Radclyffe, who, though utterly indifferent to Magick, was passionately fond of poetry and thought mine first-class, and unrivaled in my generation"!

        Unbewußte Gemeinheiten. Unbeswusste Gemeinheiten. Ein Vortrag.

      Verlag Ernst Reinhardt, München 1905 - RARE early 1st Edn. BLEULER father of SCHIZOPHRENIA. EUGEN BLEULER Unbeswusste Gemeinheiten. 8vo., 40pp. [22.8 x 14.8cms] Original printed stiff light brown wrappers. FIRST EDITION of one of Bleuler's rare published papers. Paul Eugen Bleuler (April 30, 1857 - July 15, 1939) was a Swiss psychiatrist most notable for his contributions to the understanding of mental illness and coining the term schizophrenia. Bleuler was born in Zollikon, a small town near Zurich in Switzerland, to Johann Rudolf Bleuler, a wealthy farmer, & Pauline Bleuler-Bleuler. He studied medicine in Zurich, and later studied in Paris, London and Munich after which he returned to Zurich to take a post as an intern at the Burghölzli, a university hospital. In 1886 Bleuler became the director of a psychiatric clinic at Rheinau, a hospital located in an old monastery on an island in the Rhine. Rheinau was noted at the time for being backward, and Bleuler set about improving conditions for the patients resident there. Bleuler returned to the Burghölzli in 1898 to be appointed director, where notably he employed Carl Jung as an intern. Bleuler is particularly notable for naming schizophrenia, a disorder which was previously known as dementia praecox. Bleuler realized the condition was neither a dementia, nor did it always occur in young people (praecox meaning early) and so gave the condition the purportedly less stigmatising but still controversial name from the Greek roots schizein ("to split") and phr?n, phren- ("mind"). Bleuler treated celebrated Russian ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky after his breakdown in 1919. Bleuler coined the New Latin word autismus (English translation autism) in 1910 as he was defining symptoms of schizophrenia, deriving it from the Greek word autos (meaning self). According to the Critical Dictionary of Psychoanalysis by Charles Rycroft, it was Bleuler who introduced the term ambivalence (in 1911). An excellent near fine example, upper cover with a gentle fold neatly straightened. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Sea Power in its Relations to the War of 1812

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & company, Limited,, 1905. 2 volumes, large octavo. Publisher's later dark blue combed cloth, titles to spines gilt. With the dust jackets. Photogravure frontispiece and 8 other plates to each, 25 maps and plans in all, 5 of them folding. Front hinges slightly cracked, else a very good set in jackets. First UK edition, same year as the US, from American sheets with a cancel title. Originally published in parts by Scribner's between January 1904 and January 1905, this volume constitutes the final part of Mahan's highly influential Sea Power series. The bindings and dust jackets on this set are clearly later, almost certainly from the 1940s when perhaps some unbound sheets were found in the warehouses of Sampson Low. Sets of Clowes's Royal Navy, from the same publishers, have also been encountered in similar bindings and jackets, and the jacket design itself is very similar to that of Sea Power by T124 (pseudonym of Capt. Russell Grenfell), a well-received and widely-read study published in 1941.
