        Lieti Meriggi.

      Milano, Ditta Giovanni Gussoni, ca. 1905.. 2 Bll. mit 3 (2 farbigen) Illustrationen, 4 chromolithograph. Bll. mit beweglichen Abbildungen. OHLwd. mit chromolithograph. Abbildung auf Vorderdeckel. 25,7 x 19,2 cm.. Über KVK kein Exemplar in italienischen und internationalen Bibliotheken lokalisierbar; der Verleger Giovanni Gussoni stellte seinen Betrieb 1907 ein, das hier vorliegende bewegliche Bilderbuch dürfte eines seiner letzten Verlagsprodukte gewesen sein (vgl. Caccia, Editori a Milano, p. 165). - Das Bilderbuch in der Art Meggendorfers zeigt Tiere auf dem Bauernhof, die vier Tafeln mit den beweglichen Teilen im Einzelnen: I.: Ein Pferd an der Krippe, dessen Kopf sich herunter bewegen kann und dann in Kontakt mit einem kleinen Hund tritt, der aus dem Stroh auftaucht. - II. Schweine am Trog, zwei Ferkel lassen sich bewegen. - III. Ein Esel schlägt aus und befördert dabei ein Hund in die Höhe. - IV.: Eine Katze lauert hinter einem Verschlag und will auf eine Gruppe Küken springen, die wachsame Henne senkt sich dabei beschützend auf ihren Nachwuchs. - Rosa Massara De Capitani (1869-1925) ist als Mailänder Dialektdichterin und Librettistin in Erscheinung getreten. - Tls. an den Rändern etwas angestaubt. Recht gutes Exemplar, die beweglichen Tafeln alle funktionsfähig und ohne Verluste.

        Atlas der menschlichen Blutzellen. Erste und Zweite Lieferung. + Supplement-Band. Erste - Dritte Lieferung. (all. publ.)

      - Jena, Gustav Fischer, 1905-1912, 8°, VI, 82, (1); XIV pp., pp.83-571; (4), 36 pp.; IV, pp.37-131; X, pp.132-240, 43 farblith. Quart- und Foliotafeln, feinen Halbleinenbänden. Erste Ausgabe! - "Mit Abschluß des nun fertiggestellten dritten Supplementheftes [beschließe ich endgültig und übergebe der Öffentlichkeit ein Werk (in 43 Tafeln und 75 Gruppenbildern aus 50 verschiedenen Krankheitsfällen), an dem ich nunmehr seit über 12 Jahren (seit 1899) unausgesetzt geschafft und gefördert habe." - Obwohl also ursprünglich eigentlich in erster Linie ein didaktisches Werk geplant war, wandelte dieses sich doch mit der Zeit sehr bald mehr und mehr zu einer fast überwiegend wissenschaftlich monographischen Untersuchung um. - Wer nun diesen z. T. doch ganz neuen Feststellungen, der morphologischen Hämatologie genügendes Interesse entgegenbringt, daß er die Mühe nicht scheut, den vielfach irrenden Entwicklungsgang dieses Forschungszweiges in seiner Genese per aspera an der Hand des Autors mitzudurchlaufen und sich in die Entwicklung der Gesetze der Blutzellgenese liebevoll zu vertiefen, der wird bald erkennen, daß schließlich allein die von uns zuerst vertretene und in diesem Werk abbildlich belegte Auffassung von der Zellgenese (genetische Beurteillungsmethode der Morphologie) der Blutzellen," nämlich die Lehre von der Unterscheidung zwischen Alterung und artlicher Entwicklung im allgemeinen, von Altersformen und Zeichen artlicher Differenzzierung im besonderen, nicht nur wohl begründet, sondern zurzeit wohl auch die einzige ist, die imstande ist, jede pathologische Zellform ohne Willkür restlos und befriedigend auf ihren jeweiligen normalen, behinderten oder aberrativen Entwicklungszustand und genetischen Wert hier zu erklären, und so in der Fülle der Gesichte zurechtzuweisen. Nur diese unsere Lehre von der Interferenz der Alterung mit der Differenzierung, nach der jeder morphologische Entwicklungszustand der Zelle das Produkt und die Resultante zweier koeffektiver Faktoren, eben der phyletisch-zellartlichen Differenzierung und der cytoindividuellen ontogenetischen Alterung ist, ferner die Anschauung, daß die artliche Entwicklung ihrerseits wieder analytisch in eine heteroplastische und eine homoplastisch proliferative Modalität zu zerlegen ist (derart, daß in allen Zellstämmen mindestens zwei selbständig alterungsfähige Generationen unterschieden werden müssen), nur diese Lehre und cytogenetische Auffassung ermöglicht es, mit absoluter Sicherheit jede irgendwie aufstoßende Zellform in deskriptiver Hinsicht genauestens zu bestimmen. - Die Richtigkeit unserer Auffassung wird über kurz oder lang sicherlich bestätigt werden und die von uns zuerst festgestellte Kenntnis der wahren morphologischen und genetischen Verhältnisse, soweit sie mit unseren jetzigen bloß deskriptiven Methoden überhaupt zu ergründen ist, wird sich durchringen, nur werden andere, die selbst dabei weniger forschend voranzugehen als unsere Ergebnisse nachzuprüfen haben, diese unsere Lehren alsdann in knapperer und konzentrierterer Form vortragen, kommentieren und propagieren können." A. Pappenheim, Vorrede zum Ergänzungsband und Schlußworte zum Gesamtwerk des Atlasses - - First Edition, bound with all original installments wrappers! - Artur Pappenheim (1870-1916) "One of the leaders in modern haematology, Pappenheim improved the methods of staining of blood cells" initially studied mathematics and philosophy, but his focus later turned to medicine, and in 1895 received his degree from the University of Berlin. Subsequently he became an assistant to Joseph von Mering at the University of Halle, and afterwards worked under neurologist Ludwig Lichtheim in Königsberg. Later he was an assistant to dermatologist Paul Gerson Unna in Hamburg and to internist Ernst Viktor von Leyden in Berlin. In 1912 he obtained the title of professor. - Pappenheim established and published Folia haematologica, a journal dedicated to hematology. He was the author of several books, and .

        The Garden of Allah

      Frederick A. Stokes New York (1905) - Probable First American Edition, with "This edition published in January, 1905" statement at copyright page. The book was first published in England in 1904 and different American printings, including the 1907 illustrated Stokes edition and the contemporary Grosset and Dunlap photoplay edition have been erroneously designated as the first American printing by previous cataloguers. This copy, with a January 1905 printing statement seems the most probable to hold the true mantle of 'First American Edition'. This copy remarkable for retaining the original printed publisher's dustjacket, with press copy by such English journals as the Daily Mirror and Punch at front panel. Rear panel advertised Hichen's three previous works, The Woman with the Fan, Felix, and Tongues of Conscience. When first published, this exciting tale of adventure in which a young English woman travels alone in the Sahara Desert was regarded as a titillating piece of literature. The Garden of Allah was the basis for three films. The first two were silent films, a 1916 production and the 1927 MGM production directed by Rex Ingram. The third was an Academy Award winner produced by David O. Selznick in 1936 and starring Marlene Dietrich, Charles Boyer, and Basil Rathbone. Very Good, some dampstaining to lower edge of covers, in dustjacket with centimeter deep chipping at lower spine end, closed tears at lower flap edges, chipping along top edge.

        The Four Just Men.

      London: Tallis Press, 1905 - Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine and upper board in black. Bookseller's blind stamp to front free endpaper. Cloth very slightly rubbed at the tips, some spotting to endpapers and early leaves and occasional small spots to margins of contents thereafter, as often. A lovely, bright copy in excellent condition with the competition slip intact. First edition, first impression. This famous piece of detective fiction is notable for being an early example of interactive media, as the identity of the murderer was withheld pending the result of the competition between readers to solve the mystery. Cash prizes were on offer totalling the huge sum of £500. By some accounts the mystery was no such thing and the publishers were inundated with correct entries and disappointed customers. A particularly beautiful copy with the mail-in slip intact and still attached to its stub at the back of the book. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Der rote Kern, die Haube und die Regio hypothalamica bei einigen Säugetieren und beim Menschen (3: pp.51-267; 4: 103-225, 116 Abb., 2 Taf.). In : Arbeiten aus dem Hirnantomischen Institut. 10 Bde. (all publ.).

      . Arb. hirnanat. Inst. Zürich, 1-10. - Wiesbaden, J.F. Bergmann, 1905-1916, 8°, ca. 3500 pp., ca. 1000 Abb., 10 Leinenbände.. First description of "Monakow's bundle", the rubrospinal tract by Constantin von Monakow (1853-1930). - - There are several great scholars to whom Japanese comparative neurologists are much indebted. They are C.v. Monakow (1853-1930) of Zurich, H.H. Donaldson (1857-1938) and G.E. Coghill (1872-1963) of the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, C.J. Herrick (1868-1960) of Chicago, and C.U. A. Kappers (1877-1946) of Amsterdam. Most of the Japanese neurologists in early times, such as S. Hatai (1876-1963) and G. Fuse (1880-1946), studied under these European and American mentors. After returning to Japan, they established their own laboratories in Japanese universities and educated many young students. - "The 'Hirnanatomie Institut' now gradually increased its research and was on a good path to become a world-known centre of brain research. The initial oneman show was amplified by young Swiss collaborators: Minkowski was joined by Nägeli, Veraguth, Tramer, Brun, Katzenstein, Frey. Over the years, a series of visitors from Japan came to work at the Brain Institute. It had a considerable impact on the accomplished work, as recently reported by Akert and Yonekawa*: Tsuchida (monograph on the oculomotor system); Masuda (pontine nuclei - a link from the cerebral cortex to the pontine grey and cerebellum); Gennosuke Fuse (1880-1946), assistant of the University in Zurich from 1907 to 1911 and again from 1914 to 1916; his opus magnum was an atlas of the lower brainstem; Hisakiyo Uemura working on long-term retrograde degeneration after cerebellar lesion; Tsunesuke Fukuda on thalamo-frontal projections in neuropathological cases (the discovery of the dorsomedial relay nucleus to the prefrontal cortex); Itsuki Nagino (auditory pathway); Sakuemon Kodama (1895-1970), a pupil of Fuse, stayed five years in Zurich. Finally, in 1928/29, Ko Hirasawa (1900-1989) studied the basal ganglia. He made a brilliant career in Japan with a series of outstanding pupils. The Japanese were hardworking scientists, adding considerably to the prestige of the Institute." M. Wiesendanger, C. R.

(1916, 10:pp.113-213). - - Constantin von Monakow (1853-1930), director of the Brain Anatomy Institute in Zurich, was a pioneer in the early history of interdisciplinary brain sciences. The elucidation of connectivity in sensory and motor pathways was richly illustrated in two landmarkmonographs: Pathologie du cerveau (1897) and La localisation de l'encephale et la degradation fonctionelle par des lesions circonscrites du cortex cerebral (1914). His special merit was to conceptualize his accumulating results. As to his term 'diaschisis': - - (1) neurological lesion are rarely restricted to a histologically defined neural structure; (2) any brain focus is interconnected with remote structures - thus, dependent structures are deafferented from the lesioned territory (= 'diaschisis') -; (3) dependent structures, however, gradually regain some autonomy, as reflected in partial behavioral recovery. His term 'chronogenic localization' was used for the brain's fundamental organization in time-dependent network constellations. Monakow attracted many researchers,particularly from Japan. He was an engaged member of the International Brain Commission until its dissolution during World War I. - - *K. Akert, Y.

        [Poster or Broadside]: Brighten Up "That's my advice to you..."

      [Cleveland]: Sherwin-Williams Paints & Varnishes. [no date - circa 1905]. First. Poster or broadside printed in black and red. Measuring 16.5" x 21.5". Small nicks at the extremities, old folds, a very good example. Text with illustration of the company's "Little Paint Man" and the company's iconic "We Cover the World" logo, which was adopted in 1905 (but used a few years before). Certainly rare - printed on very thin onion skin-type paper; the survival rate of these posters must have been miniscule. .

      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). .

        Das römische Carneval. Nr. 114 von 250 numerierten Exemplaren.

      Leipzig, Insel-Verlag, 1905.. Faksimile-Druck - eigentlich zweite Auflage. Mit gestochener Titelvignette und 20 handkolorierten lithographischen Tafeln. 1 faksim. Umschlag (Vorderdeckel), 2 Blätter, 58 Seiten, 20 Blätter mit einseitig lithographierten Tafeln, 1 Blatt mit Druckvermerk, 1 Blatt faksim. Umschlag (Hinterdeckel). Lex.-8° (22,2 cm x 28 cm).

Nachdruck der ersten, sehr bald vergriffenen Ausgabe (Weimar und Gotha, Ettinger 1789), von der Goethe selbst kein Exemplar besass. - Die Radierungen der Original-Ausgabe schuf G. M. Kraus nach Skizzen von G. Schutz und Goethe. - Aus dem Druckvermerk des Insel-Verlags: "Im 'zweiten römischen Aufenthalt' bemerkte Goethe dann, dass das Carneval 'sich selten mache'; er selbst besaß es in seiner Bibliothek nicht und bot in einer Auktion vergebens sechs Taler drauf. Trotz Goethes Zweifel unternahm der Insel-Verlag in Leipzig im Jahre 1905 diese 'zweite Auflage'. Sie wurde in 250 numerierten Exemplaren in der Offizin von W. Drugulin in Leipzig gedruckt. Die Tafeln wurden durch Steindruck hergestellt und mit der Hand koloriert." (Sarkowski 605) - Einband berieben und etwas fleckig (die üblichen Lederflecken). Kanten und Ecken beschabt, Ecken bestoßen. Rückenkanten unten mit minimalen Einrissen (Beschabungen). Schmutztitel leicht stockfl. bzw. mit leichtem Titelvignettenabdruck. Ansonsten innen recht frisch und gut erhalten. - Dekoratives, ansprechend gestaltetes Werk - ein schönes Beispiel für die Buchkunst im frühen Insel-Verlag.
